Here's a screenshot of my current digital project. I'm doing a series of 4 mummyesque figures in coffins for the Voida Voida coffin shaped book that Zeke is putting together. The originals are going to be much larger (19 x 7 inches) than the coffin book versions to allow for some nice looking prints.
A brief explanation of what some of the imagery in this picture are... bones from an ancint giant sloth, mummified lamas, the ears and split open forehead of a slaughtered pig, bits and pieces of a cool gargoyle sculpture, the right eye is that of a rhino, the wood on the borders is from a flooded out building that had some great textural wood rot, and other weird things. This part is still rough and I'm working towards pulling things better together but I have the head and chest area loosely how I want them.
