This image of Death is loosely based on the Commedia dell'Arte character Arlecchino.  He holds a scyth (a reference to death as the grim reaper) and a skull (someone's spirit that he has collected).  The ravens are his harbingers.  He is masked because Death should never be associated with anyone in particular and his mask includes a tear because he is not unsympathetic.  Death travels with his sister Oblivion, who helps smooth the path.This picture is done in pencil in my sketchbook.
