Memento Mori by yuumei Memento Mori by yuumei

I had the honor of participating in `zemotion’s Motherland Chronicles project [link] :D

I decided to reinterpret one of her older piece with her newer ones . It was such an amazing process. I don’t normally work with photo references so this has been a great learning experience.

Be on the look out for the book that’s coming out! Get the updates at her facebook! [link] :)

Incredible combination of the two individual works!! This looks incredible! I love love love the color scheme and the style you draw in. The stark whiteness of her face looks like it's practically glowing against the dark dark background. I love the lighting in this one and the look on her face is enchanting! She looks like she's waiting for someone. Oh! A story needs to be written for this girl. This is so incredible. There is nothing bad I could say about it. : )))

Beautiful and very dark at the same time... just gorgeous 

I have just notice the title of this piece, which I find it even more interesting about this piece:"Memento Mori" = "remember that you will die" (Latin)
Beside all the beautiful details in the drawing, now I'm more curious to what is the story behind it... (especially when the girl is holding white flowers and... rib bones(?))
Is there a reason to why you pick this title for the piece?
