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.

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

That is pretty beautiful drawing of her. ^^

Although i never heard of her, but when i was doing a research, despite an early sexy girl, but she was exposed as a spy against Germany during WWI and its no wonder she was executed.
