Very nice, they look like a charming and model-esque couple (even though one is loaded :gun:) The background is really nice too and has good perspective :)

this is a pretty nice pic and all (particularly the background), but who are these people? where's Mannie, and Wyoh and the Professor?

thanks for the comment derby! well, sorry to disappoint but the title was merely inspired by robert heinlein's book and not about the book itself. i chose the title since it fits the concept of the deviation (since the woman in the picture is called luna and she looks like a harsh chinese mistress :))

however all in all the aforesaid book by heinlein was a masterpiece! are you a fan of sf?

i'm as much a fan of science fiction as much as i am a fan of any other genre of literature, which is to say there's a lot of good stuff and about ten times more crap, so i'm picky about what i read to begin with, and even pickier about what i'll read twice... and i'm currently re-reading the aforementioned book for the fifth time in two years... i would easily consider it one of the top five best books i've ever read, if not the best. if i might make a suggestion, you should perhaps apply your considerable talent towards a piece of art depicting a scene from the book. there's only a few pieces of fan art for it on da, and while i applaud the subject, most of them lack the kind of aulity that your art seems to have.

Uhhh, the two main characters in Robert A. Heinlein's book, "The Moon is a Harsh Mistress?"

I thought by the title that you actually knew something about the book, but I guess I was wrong.

oh! i knew about the book and the general premise of it, but i've never really read it so no.... no character names! :D quick thinking tho dear!

the title has to do with the female character here having the name luna and the fact that she looks like a chinese mistress and is carrying a gun :XD:

Andie! This is so awesome!!! I absolutely adore this piece, I could stare at this for hours. :D

First of all: I love the title! It`s poetic. :) How did you find it?
Then, of course....the surrouding!! The DETAIL! I love the atmosphere it creates, the little lights everywhere, the white texture in the back, the ornaments! Wow, just wow! :boogie:
And of course I love your two characters, Helix in suit *drools* with flat hair, lol. And of course, as always, in a beautiful dress and beautiful hair (wish I could do my hair like that :D ), Bishop. The looks on their faces are great, tensed, as they expect something to happen in a few seconds.

Lovely piece!! It`s clear that you put a lot of hard work and passion into it! :clap:

dank je wel henrike! sorry for the late response :)

thank you about the title--but it isn't my original idea. it is the title of robert heinlein's science fiction novel from the 50s. i just chose it cos bishop's real name is luna (moon) and in this picture she is posing as a chinese mistress. she also looks sinister here with the gun, so that's why the title is the moon is a harsh mistress :XD:

heheh.... well, im very glad that you like it!!! the ornaments were difficult to do but it's worth it! thank you again henrikeeeee :hug: hope you are well up there? things are getting hectic at work here. take care!!

Hectic? You poor girl....I hope things go well for you on your work and try to relax inbetween ok? :hug:

I can imagine the ornaments were difficult, but the piece would`t be the same without it. :)
It`s still a cool title, even if you didn`t made it up, it still fits the theme and I still love it. :boogie:

I`m ok `up here` :D, thanks. I got my drivers licence. :D yay
Furthermore I`m busy one day, and can relax the other day so that`s ok too.

Take care!

That`s so cool that you`re teaching manga! How did you come to that?

You`ve been to ma little country? cool! :lol: No I don`t live in Amsterdam, I live in Utrecht which lies appr. somewhere in the middle of the netherlands. My parents live in the north and I`m there often too. :)
Well, there isn`t much going on in my life. I`m interpreting alot for practicals. Have to travel alot for that...
I have practised the driving last weekend in my parents` car. It was fun! :D

Are you going to post some comic pages on here again? I`d love to see them!
Good luck with all your deadlines!!

utrecht sounds like a nice place! and there is a famous university there right? thank you, i actually learned manga at a place and they offered me a teaching position in english. im not actually qualified but they don't have anyone else who speaks english! ^^; lucky me i guess! but my teacher did say that the fastest method of learning is teaching! :D

There is a univerity here yes, serveral even, but I don`t know how famous they are. :D I`m in college so I`m not taking any lessons there.
It`s very nice here in Utrecht indeed. It`s a large city but not as big as Amsterdam or Rotterdam, I like that. It has also many old buildings.

Wow, so you want to learn manga and instead you can teach it, that`s so cool! :lol: Have fun!!

Andie,

I love this one just as i loved FROM PRUSSIA WITH LOVE.

I saw too your comment on Axel as the unrivalled beau. That was so sweet. How I would love you to draw the real Marie Antoinette with her long hair and En Gaulle Trianon costume holding hands with her beloved Axel as the contemplate the late afternoon and then evening together....

Ahhhhh sweet romance and such a sight for the Swedish knight ... soon to be in the arms of the fairest of all queens... the fairest of all women.

fersen-marie antoinette drawing sounds interesting! however i don't fancy marie too much. i agree though that swedish knights are irresistible. in fact, i still have a swedish and scandinavian fetish until now! :D

hehehe, Andie, you are right about dear sweet redpassion, but where you have that fetish for Fersen ...still, i hope that will lead you to draw him and in doing so feed my MA fetish... here and at my website i've got lots of images of Marie Antoinette for you to see... so hope you will draw her in with a good likeness ... and her curvaceous figure even if your eye remained fixed on LE BEAU FERSEN. :)))
