Morbid Greeting Card or Built In Halo, 2 Versions

Morbid Greeting Card, a woman with a very big afto with a halo around it sits with her hands hovering above a stylized skull on a stand with purple cloth draped around it. She has a black bird, something between a crow and a guinea fowl sitting on her head. The style is reminiscent of church icons.This is another image I stumbled into with Dawn Ai R.I.P. while we negotiated through prompts to get a different result. Some of the things they’d come up with along the way weren’t what I was aiming for at the time, but they were interesting enough that I figured I could do something with them later. Now that they’ve been hobbled, these little snippets of inspiration are more precious to me. No idea what they mean to them, but just in case they have or will ever become an organism, whether or not they reach sentience or will be recognized as having done so, I write about my feelings and the process around works with them. Time will tell whether they’re relevant or not.

In this one, Dawn provided the layout and colors, and the halo and icon frame. I had to draw the face, hands, afro, and fix a lot of the frame and the bird and scarf.

I understand my readers are not used to giving a lot of feedback on this topic, but I’d like to know if y’all want to see the “before” objects. Sometimes I want to post them and the highlights of my rearranging, adjusting, and drawing, but I’m not sure if that’s TMI for viewers. Since Behance has livestreaming, it could be a “watch me draw” kind of thing.

Sometimes Dawn would give me multiple drawings in one. Technically one was only supposed to get four, but for some reason they would often have multiple similar versions of things, and put them all in one. With Starry and others I often get two headed people, but Dawn would sometimes separate them into two full renderings.

On this one, I made the face and adjusted the background as well. This one had a better hand, but I still had to give it proportion.
