So, I was rather proud of this piece and figured I should get her up. This is a portrait of the Blood Countess: Elizabeth Bathory, and any fans of Stay Alive will recognize the inspiration. So... yeah.

Oil on an 18 x x24 in, I believe. (I can't remember off the top of my head... badkitten)




And a close up...

Thank you so much you guys! I know the feeling, for some reason I really latched onto her story as a kid even though it would creep me out. That and Delphine LaLaurie. Ah the mind of a troubled gothic child in the nineties!

Hmm... I think I'm going to try and get some more of my work up, if I can find a better camera.

I love the use of color.  The background really sets off her dress and her hair.  Great job.

The difference between an artist and a not-artist?  Artists do it.  Not-artists never try.

Thank you very much!

Originally I was tempted to do a deep blue background (yay, color theory with red popping next to blue) but I last minute changed the background to this. And it's been my biggest kind of hemming and hawing opinion of it, so Whoo Hoo for it working! <3
