Salome by sorskc Salome by sorskc
My focus on this one was to pack in tons of detail! I love super detailed art, and usually feel that mine is lacking... so, even though it's time consuming and makes me crazy, I like the end result.

I like it too. You've got such an interesting style, has an old world feel to it. They look like engravings or woodblock prints from an illustrated story book.

The pic is of Salome and her mother, right?

Nope, it's Salome and John the Baptist.

Oooooh. I didn't notice that the head was severed, before. Now I feel silly.

I thought it was a figure wearing all black, and that's why I assumed it was Salome's mother, brooding in the back there all evil and telling her daughter to ask for John's head.

Trust me, I did go a little crazy. XD Especially when I didn't finish a line in one stroke, and had to connect two lines. With a ball point pen, this is extremely difficult T____T /weeps

I love the detail on this and just had a thought that if you were interested in the series and if it was still going on that I think your style would really compliment the Sandman series by Neil Gaiman. Is that too weird/wrong of me to say? I meant it as a compliment.

Thank you! And hm, that seems like a pretty high compliment, since the Sandman stuff is so popular! I've never read it though. I probably should someday!

I do recommend the series both artistically and of course as a literary series. And perhaps but I realy did look at these two here and think they looked like they could belong with the Sandman characters. If you do think I'm being too over the top though then please ignore my ramblings.

I have an old leather bound volume of Edgar Alan Poe which has art like this. I love it, but simply cannot wrap my head around doing it myself. *loves*
