I started draw this 2 years ago and I just finished this piece.
Ladies and Gentlemen: Mata Hari!
Exotic dancer who was convicted of being a spy. 
I was inspired by a book based on her life.

Fine, and finely done, likeness. Too bad her trial was something of a farce, but she might(!) have actually been guilty. No-one really knows.

This is so gorgeous! It's beautiful in general, but what I love most is the scintillation and sparkles--it really pops so well against the black and white, it's fantastic. Nicely done! +fav
