Inspired by one of the characters in the book A Dirty Job by Christopher Moore. It was amusing that a child could have supernatural powers, a set of hellhounds for pets, and could kill people just by saying the word "kitty".

So alas, an interpretation of the Luminatus, or Death. Weilding a massive scythe just so you know exactly what she is. I like juxtaposition. Contrast is a nice thing, simple, straightforward lineart crossed with loaded symbolism, said symbolism paired with a muted but not dark color scheme. It makes for a somewhat creepy effect.
