The Suggester said: "Simply put, Lady Mordarante by *Caelicorn is absolutely stunning! Wonderful details and softness makes the colours glow in an eerie light!". I totally agree, it's one of most impressive portraits I've seen recently. The light, style and details are just awesome!

Lady Mordarante

I did this illustration for my dear dear friend Dracs. The character belongs to her, and is an unseelie noble. You can see a larger version and closeups here: [link]

I also upload my cgsociety portfolio first, so that is where all the new stuff will appear ;-)

This is published in Exotique 6, and recently, in the Art of Isis Sousa and friends.

Edit: Wow! Thank you for the DD =^_^= that has inspired me to get my A into G and finish some more stuff to upload for you! I really appreciate it and did not expect it! Such a wonderful surprise and I am very honoured xxoxo!!

THIS is a wonderful piece of art, the colours are magnifique and the use of light and shadows make a perfect contrast as beautiful as the contrast between her dark hair and light blue eyes.

I couldnt imagine how long might have taken you to paint something so graceful but you did a great job. I am amazed when I see so pristine and detailed artwork! 
Aplauses! Clap Clap Clap Clap Clap

The vibrant, dazzling color makes the portrait pop, but it's her expression, the luminous flesh texture, and your composition that really leave me in awe here--the details are delicately rendered, but the don't take over the picture. This is a woman of sublime confidence and power. The fact that she's gorgeous increases that power--which makes her all the more dangerous; her flared ruff might be a threat display done in lace. Given the shadows skittering across the landscape, even the vivid splashes of color on her person read as displays of exhibits of the fact that she's in complete control of her environment. Superbly, masterfully done. Brava.
