Sugar Skull Design - Sketch by Ayeri Sugar Skull Design - Sketch by Ayeri
*EDIT- I'm just curious how people are coming across this piece, so comment below with how you found me!* Please and Thanks!

This is a design that I'm working on for one of my co-workers. It's in the sketch phase so I will be pulling it onto the computer and making it look amazing. Red will be added into the center of the smaller flowers and the larger flowers will be red as well as the lips. One of the things I hate when I start drawing on paper is that sometimes I am horrible at gauging where to start the drawing on the paper and then I make it go off the edge. :( Does that ever happen to any of you? Nothing a computer can't fix though, right?! :)

So yay! Sugar Skulls! Day of the Dead! El Dia de los Muertos!

Also, crappy camera phone takes crappy pictures. My apologies.
Here is the colored cleaned up version of this! ----> :fav.me/d5x4ztq

Yeah, I checked it out! I'll have to see how I can report it on ask.fm... I'm not sure really what else to do. I hope we can bring him down!

Hi! One of polish ask.fm "Fames" copied your drawing and added a fake sign.  I think you should know. We're trying to make him tell the truth about copying pictures, but his crazy fanclub [mostly 11 years old girls] is defending him, telling "he didn't do anything wrong".

I posted on his Facebook page and kindly asked him to remove the post from ask.fm... but he deleted my post off of Facebook. Lol. Guess he really wants people to believe he drew it. I hope he realizes that it's not right, and removes it because he wants to be a good person and do the right thing.

Well, I expected it. I don't think reporting it to ask.fm will do anything, because he stole works from DOZENS of different artists. I guess only threating him with legal action will work.

I do the same thing as far as proportions sometimes. (I.E.running off the page with your drawing) Speaking from my own experience, I've found that it helps to draw the general outline of what I want to draw first, then add in all the details. It helps me to know my boundaries as far as size and to fit everything into the drawing. This looks very nice, though, I like it!

Lol Glad to see I'm not alone! Yeah, that's a good tip. There are a lot of times I am able to do that, especially when I already know ahead of time what I envision for that particular piece. This one, however, I had no idea where I was going to take it. I started drawing and before I know it, that's what it turned out like. Luckily, it wasn't terribly far off the edge. Appreciate the comment!!

Your translation was great! I will use a translator as well. I remember learning about El Dia de los muertos in school in Spanish class. I had a lot of fun learning about it. Thank you for the comment!

Su traducción fue genial! Voy a utilizar un traductor también. Recuerdo aprender sobre El Día de los muertos en la escuela en la clase de español. Tuve un montón de diversión aprendiendo sobre ella. Gracias por el comentario!
