This is great piece of art.  I've been trying to find the perfect dia de los muertos beauty to make a custom bass drum head from.  I think this would be great.  Is it possible to get a high-res image file of this?

Well i am mexican and i love this picture. I don't get why some folks find it offensive, i for one think you did a great job of portraying mexican culture. Things like this make me feel a bit proud of my nation's culture, which otherwise is poor and filled with close-minded people. 
Anyway, aweome work!! :)

i really don't get why she got so mad about it..i didn't want to do anything offensive, i really find that part of the mexican culture very interesting and intriguing, and it has lots of similarities with southern europe, especially southern italy..

Your pic is not offensive at all, cultural intolerance is.

It's a beautiful painting. However, my biggest concern is that the woman doesn't look even remotely Mexican, and from what I can tell, you're not of Mexican descent (since your profile says your location is Italy). I know that sugar skull make-up has been very popular for a while now, but this is an actual culture. It's not just something to be used as decoration in a painting. All I am saying is, this painting is guilty of cultural appropriation, and it may upset people of Mexican descent.

well thank you for the comment!
honestly i don't understand why are you so concerned about it tho..
yes i exactly know she doesn't look mexican, as it wasn't my intention to portrait a mexican girl, nor am i mexican, as you pointed i am italian, and never been to mexico, and don't even know anyone from there..
despite what you think about me, i know that is tradition, and i know a lot about it, and honestly i don't get what did you find so offensive about this illustration, there's absolutely nothing offensive, i'm not making fun of anyone, i'm not denigrating anyone or any culture, religion or whatever.
so you're saying anyone here that post something that is not related to his/her culture, tradition, religion, is guilty of cultural appropriation?
i think this is way too much..

Intention does not matter. If something is offensive, it remains offensive regardless if the guilty party intended to be offensive. If I step on your foot, and apologize saying I didn't mean to hurt you, you may forgive me, but your foot is still hurting.

It's not offensive because you are deliberately insulting someone. It's offensive because you are using someone's religion as a decorative feature in a completely non-spiritual work of art being worn by a white-washed character.

Also, you can tell me there is nothing offensive all you want, but the fact remains that "I" did in fact find something offensive about it.

so that's the point of your discussion, it offends you.
you could at least told it at first, instead of taking the long road.
well i could say i'm sorry i didn't want to offend anyone, but as you said it will still be offending, so don't know what to say.
and seeing what's going on here lately, looks like you have a lot of people that needs to apologize with you..

I don't understand how exactly you expected me to convey my feelings. I do love your painting. It is technically well done, and shows real skill and mastery of digital painting. However, it is still problematic. And no, I don't want apologies. If you think that's what I wanted, then you've learned nothing at all, and are becoming defensive rather than stopping to take a moment to LEARN something. This is not about "you hurt me, now apologize". This is about an entirely much bigger issue where society has indoctrinated into people that using other people's religious symbolism as "fashion accessories" and "decorative non-symbolic elements" has become the norm. Do what you like. It's your are. My purpose in bringing this up was simply to educate you on how this work MIGHT be interpreted by some members of your viewing audience. As artists, we not only have a responsibility to the art we create, but to how that art will affect the world around us.
