A plague of sorrow by ShawnCoss A plague of sorrow by ShawnCoss
Was sitting around one day and happened to see this nice piece of cardboard chilling in my living room and felt compelled to mutilate it with art.

I absolutely love the old plague masks from ages ago but never got a chance to draw one.

did this little baby in my trust micron pens, acrylic, and pencil.

*Edit*

Wanted to thank you all for checking out this piece. I had no idea how much people would enjoy a little bit of ink on cardboard. =D

I didn't know they existed until I play Assassins Creed II and beyond.

Flawless victory, this stands out really well and reminds me of Mr. Albert Camus and his famous "Plague".
Maybe you didn't had it in mind, but it is connected. Suffering and inability to do a damn thing hidden behind a mask..ech, brings back old memories. Truly amazing work.

I DID, I DID see a plague mask on Facebook. Sick. (Ugh, pun.)

I love the levels of this... that bright white, almost like smoke... The deep black of the corner leading up into the primary lines... the faded grey of the demonic evilly faces up top... Very nice.

Plus, points for plague masks.

um I absolutely love them. I stick with the 01 and the 005. They can get pricey but they are worthy every penny.
