I remember seeing this years ago, but I never found out who made this! Fav :+fav:
Not sure if it was another site or I forgot to fav on this site.

You make great pieces of art.
I'm writing a story related to this character and I needed a image for the cover, then I saw this picture and said "this is the perfect one"...
You can see the cover here: riusakilawlieth.deviantart.com…
Thanks again for inspiring others with such beautiful illustrations.

I really like the legend of Pandora's box and this picture is fantastic :D (Big Grin) :) (Smile)

This picture is beyond amazing and incredibly detailed; the lighting and form are beautiful and the picture looks photorealistic. I wish I could draw like this... mostly because my art teacher is forcing me to try and duplicate this picture, shading and all, using colored pencils, and (as someone who normally does cartoons) I've got no idea what I'm doing. So, speaking as someone trying and failing to make such a beautifully detailed piece, WOW! Keep up the good work and rock on! ☆☆☆

DO YAH? Does this count as annoying?

There's a bar in my town that is using your art as their logo. It's called Pandora's Box. And I notice your art is copyrighted. Wasn't sure if you gave permission or not.

I seriously thought this was a photo of a real person...
... Wow.. Well done.

When I first looked at this I went, "Oh that's pretty, but what else?" and then I actually LOOKED. I see the seemingly glittery gold form out into snakes, I see the patterns woven in the clothing and the background. What a beautiful piece, I can only imagine how long it took.

I don't want to look at this... this just feels so real that I think I'll be pulled in at the art for its realism.... FANTASTIC ART THERE!
