I have been very remiss in not adding my winning Secret7s image to the blog, and here it is! It was entered for Massive Attack's Karmacoma, and is based on a photo of a Peruvian mummy I found on this excellent travel blog: http://kojin.wordpress.com/ I think from a drawing stand-poit, it's the best single piece I've done to this point. I really, really love it, and it looked great printed out.
As I did for my Lorde piece, here are some process images.
