I painted this one in Photoshop using a Wacom tablet, mainly for the fun of painting shiny fabric and using "pretty" colors. The naked mole rat has no special meaning XD

Time is about 20-30 hours. Not sure how long exactly.
Reference used: my own hands, a photo of a naked mole rat.

Darn! Armed with a college class taken long ago of Literary Criticism, I was set to make the rodent the center of my interpretation of the work. Oh well. You deftly capture the heavy nature of the dress's fabric. Is that a spider on her right shoulder? Ugh, i loathe the creatures. The woman's face is lovely but cold and distant. Her accessories are delicate and finely made. The cob webs, the condition of the room and the skull in the mirror behind her seem to indicate that this lady might be dead - yet still functioning. Magic? Is she a sorceress or perhaps the long dead love of a powerful sorcerer? If I was a thief or a questing hero, I would avoid this room.

Der nacktmull is ein richtig geniales Detail :D das gibt dem Bild richtig charakter!
Das Gesicht sieht ziemlich gut gezeichnet aus. Ich mag es, dass das rechte Aue leicht rötlich ist^^
Der linke Arm sieht leicht verkrüppelt aus, weil das kleid sich aufbläht, obwohl, es ja eigentlich irgendwie auf der Lehne lieen muss. Außerdem kommt der Ellbogen nicht richti raus. Beim rechten Arm setzt die hand etwas zu weit oben an.
Den Hintergrund find ich etwas lanweili. Er wirkt irendwie etwas zusammengewürfelt und unterstreicht irgendwie den Charalter der Figur nicht.
Insggesamt sehr gelungen. Sehr schöner Stil.

This image is really stunning, the model is beautiful in a healthy way, the hispanic influence works really well in the girl's face and with the colors, the contrast between her dress and make up to her expression, posture, the spiderwebs and naturally the skull which takes a moment to take shape, all works really nicely together, and that animal on her skirt just adds another dimension of curiosity. Really nice work, and of course the technical skill is top notch. Really good work, mate.
