Missy Macabre in pastel

At my company we don’t do Christmas like most companies. This year we were treated to a bunch of dark cabaret acts, including a female fakir called Missy Macabre.

I was very taken with Missy’s nail and hammer to the nose act as well as her striking face. For this pastel drawing I used this Missy reference.

  1. Lovely work, you create a certain darkness through the shading and shadows of the figure which adds another layer of dimension. Your able to convey emotion through the expression of the individual!

  2. Hey there! Thank you for your feedback! Missy had quite a lot of personality as well 😉 She absolutely captivated the had a room and has us all very quiet while doing her crazy act 😉
