Plague Doctor by Crazymeau Plague Doctor by Crazymeau

EDIT: I just wanted to say thank you to the people who have purchased my picture so far.  It's pretty impersonal on DA in that you don't get to say thank you to your customers, the funds just pretty much appear in your account, so here it is.  Thank  you.  Very much! I'm surprised and very grateful that people have paid  for my work.  


Plague doctor o.0

I had to upload a second version of this print in jpeg format, so I could list it as a print and get a magnet!   You can find it here if you want a magnet too, lol. Plague Doctor2 by Crazymeau I already have it as a mouse pad and can personally vouch for how good it looks.  It is awesome!

This is one of the best representations of a Plague Doctor I've ever seen. The attitude and emotional atmosphere of the background has a slight contrast to the physician. The color composition--the shades of grey, slight greens in back, and the purplish shades in the mask are very subtly applied and very well done. The good doctor's attitude is somewhat impersonal--how can it be personal without a visible face?--but some sympathy or even malignance can be detected depending on what emotional material one takes to the image. Personally I see a 'pity, isn't it' look, as if the doctor's about to mercy-kill a hopeless case.
Very masterful! Intriguing and magnetic! I love it.

Let's me start off by saying I LOVE plague doctors,

This is one of the best depictions of a plague doctor. I love how the doctor stands out among the dark background. The iconic mask is really well done. The subtle violets used in the shading of the mask are amazing. The light greens are well done, too. Just by looking at the doctor, I'm getting the 'pity about this one' feeling. One could look at this and get chills down their spine. The entire piece spells out doom.

You accomplished so much in this piece. Fantastic work. Kepp it up. :clap:

Hi, I am interested in using your picture for a poster design for a low budget horror film that is having a small cinema release or for a new design specifically for the film. Could you email me at seahorsefilms.co.uk with prices.
Many Thanks
Rebekah

Heya, glad you like it, I had a lot of fun working on it. You purchase this picture by clicking the button near the top right of the page, that says "purchase for 1000 points".  That roughly translates into $10 and gives you a license to use the picture for personal or commercial uses with credit. Hope that's helpful :)

Yeah they filled the beaks with herbs or something too, I think.

Correct, they used assorted perfumes, incenses, petals, and herbs in their masks. It was believed that foul scents carried disease, and so they burned these substances inside the beaks to ward it off, or at least mask the smell of rotting corpses. They were slightly right in doing this, depending on what they burned inside in the beak.
