I am not dead (I often lurk on DA, just been extremely slow when it comes to posting art lately for various reasons, including working on other projects and dance)!
This is more of an original art inspired by Spanish Guitar players/music. I wanted to do something that is part/based of my families heritage and this is just one part (I am mixed and have family that from all over, including Spain, Mexico, Germany, Scotland, Wales, etc....). I tried to give it a bit more of a traditional feel. The hat you see here is called sombrero cordobés which came from Cordoba Spain. The background is based of Alhambra Palace/garden in Granada, Andalusia Spain (that was my dad's suggestion actually). The guy in the picture is sort of just made up on the spot. Maybe I should give him a name.
I been planning on selling my old electric guitar to get a classical or Flamenco guitar for my birthday this year (I found some low end professional ones that affordable).
This just mainly the sketch or concept. It still needs work (especially the pose/anatomy and clothing. Background can use some improvement as well) and any help/suggestions be appreciated.
La casa de la Pasión means the house of passion (sorry, the accent doesn't work with titles it seems).

If there is any art you would like me to make, feel free to tell me (I need some more inspiration. xD).
