uhm... "Come let's away to prison. We two alone will sing as birds i'the cage" (Skakespear, King Lear) "Skylark, nightingale... I can't fly, let me sing" (I don't know all the text: Joanna in Sweeney Todd) ahahah ok let's close this parenthesis that this picture let me think about. Well, the Victorian age could fit, considering the background: the boxes, the candles... as a modern girl that is transported in that age (see the clothes) and becomes a bohémien artist Ah a nice, dreamy pictures but especially very good for the technique and proportions, the "necklace" of symbols, even... I could never be so good!
Well freaking done, Emi. I could tell it was Lindsey from the thumbnail, excellent likeness. I love all of the candles, they provide a really cool atmosphere. Also, good job on her violin, mechanical items are usually a pain to draw, especially from an angle. Once again, you did a fantastic job blending a more traditional looking style of coloring and solid, precise linework.
