This image started off as a bad pun I had decided to commit to. It is a bit more gory and dark in terms of subject matter than what I normally do, but the combination of morbidity and humour hopefully comes through. Post-Gallows humor, if you will.
Above you’ll see my step by step, so you may view my working process. It is fairly representative of how I normally approach any image, followed by a close up detail cropping, so you may see the texturing and detailing better.
