White death...

Dear friends,
thanks for all the support!
I apologize to anyone who has lost a good mood because of my illustration. Before this, I did not believe that such a thing is possible.
Love,
Geto

I remember series of pictures from late Renaissance (I guess) with Grim Reaper in it. There, death was taking lives of different people in different ways, usually showing compassion towards those who have been harmed by life.

Knowledge of Russian language will help, but pictures are 'visual' enough.

Really, really good piece of art. Not only in composition, it's beautiful because it makes you ponder!
Like, is death picking the papers of him, slowly draining him? Or does he feel sorry for the old man?
Kind of want to go out and hand out sleeping bags, haha. Well done.

Thanks, Jonar. Death was the only one who cared for him at that moment ...

This harbors such an important message. It's very touching. It invokes my deepest sympathies. 
Your detail is beautiful, and the textures are ones I envy. It has such an amazing balance. I adore the lack of face under the hood.

This is one of those rare drawings that either determine if you are an optimist or pessimist.

Is Death placing the newspapers on the old man or is he taking them off?

hallo, I would love to have your permission to use your painting 'homeless' for my poetry contest, I would of course credit the painting to you. I can link you to the contest, only problem is, you need to be a member, which you can be for free, to actually see and read the poems. Please let me know if you approve?
greetings,
