Die to Live

Leave behind the part of you that is dead already. Fool the death herself. Live as a better man ever since.

My last painting for the Bjornament challenge ended up being in this stage between sketch and painting unfortunately. This wasn't enough to compete all ten of my rivals from the grace rounds for the only one slot to the finals. I'm still proud of it so here it is in my portfolio. This challenge was an amazing experience and I'm really grateful to Bjorn Hurri who organized it, and all the pros who agreed to be the judges. It was fun and it was an honor to fight all the amazing artists up to almost last round.
