Day of the Dead by ElectronicRainbow Day of the Dead by ElectronicRainbow
Sugar Skull make-up = :heart:.
I love it. You can do fantastic designs with it, use all the colours you want, make it more cute or more scary... depending on you mood. It's lovely - I'll do another one in pink/red tones.

A version without the sugar skull make-up is in my scraps! --> [link]

Obviously, this design is inspired by the queen of sugar skull ladies, Sylvia Ji. :love: If you don't know her art yet - check it out. It's amazing!

The lovely stock model is :iconbymeestock:! She is so pretty! :meow:
This is the original picture: [link]

Not sure! I mean, it was on a TV show and I didn't even know... I didn't watch the entire thing - did the artist claim is was his design? That would be really poor performance... :/

I know right it sucks... :/ I feel like the person took credits of it... because in that show, you have to make your own drawings and stuff.... and when I saw it! I totally knew that I saw it on DA in my watchs... I felt like telling you.... I think it's important

No, I'm not selling any shirts with my art on them, so it must be a rip-off. I'd really appreciate if you'd send me the store info! :nod:
Thanks a lot for informing me on this issue! :thanks:

Cultural appropriation for the lose. It's beautiful, but I've since learned how problematic it is to turn culture into a fashion accessory. I much prefer the version without the sugar skulls, honestly.

I must admit that I've made the picture unaware of the fact that it might be problematic. I've read comments on the use of sugar skulls as accessories/for aesthetic purposes alone on Tumblr and even though I can't claim to understand the full dimension of the topic (language barrier and all) I understand why others might think of the picture as problematic.
Still, I very personally find it pretty - seen from the strictly aesthetic perspective.

So, you don't mind offending people simply because you think it looks pretty? That's troubling.
