Life and Death by CalamityChemist Life and Death by CalamityChemist
Its about time that I put up something new!

This is two comparative portraits of Cecil. With his mask, hes limited, but he can survive. Without it, hes a dead man. Either way, he knows that hes in no position to live a life of any valuethat is, until events beyond his control push him to decide whether to try and seek out a life worth living, or succumb to his grim fate.

Printed and framed, these are two separate paintings meant to be displayed side-by-side, but I chose to combine them here. Both images were drawn separately, so it was a challenge trying to get them to have the same proportions! All in all, I enjoyed making this one.

I hope that you like it! ♥
Cecil Bates belongs to me ( *CalamityChemist )

My advice to cecil: accept your fate and toss away the mask, because your creator is very tender-hearted and will allow you to come back as a friendly ghoul!:)
