Earlier this week I posted photos of “Hold On” in the studio and here are her final photos on black. I named her “Hold On” because she’s the second custom in a set, the first of which I’m keeping, who is named “Let Go.” Both are Dia de los Muertos in theme too, but “Let Go” is a personal custom and I haven’t decided if I’m going to publish her online or not.
After I painted her I also felt like “Hold On” had a really strong Junko Mizuno vibe to her, there’s something about lavender being paired with black that always makes me think of Mizuno’s work for some reason. Mizuno is also Laina’s (who commissioned this girl) favorite artist so maybe I subconsciously channeled some of that feeling? Either way, “Hold On” definitely has a lot of different influences.
I hope you like her and enjoy the photos!
