The Apple by Heylenne The Apple by Heylenne
Eva Otis, First Marquise of Naberius...
...warming someone else's bed.





"If I love you and you love me,
And another one comes when you call
How can I condemn you...?
Infinite is your beauty
How can you remain imprisoned
Like a saint on the altar...?"

- Raul Seixas, "The Apple"



Just a lame translation from portuguese. I had to quote that song because... it's totally "Eva" alike.
And I love it. Hail to Raul Seixas!


And about the pseudo-tattoos, it's just leftovers of her ritualistic paintings. She is always stained like this.

Done in Photoshop CS3
I don't know how many hours. Next time I promise I'll track it down.

I spy an adder. I'm pretty sure you used a European adder reference. If you didn't, it sure looks like one! Lovely painting!

And about the mature content filter, Well it's not actually showing any body part that wold require censorship.

the perfect follow-up to you're last one!

Where everything in 'blue emptiness' seemed cold and distant. It's all very warm here!

I ofcourse do not know the characters you portray very well, but never the less, these pictures give me enough information to start the imagination yet little enough to leave nothing behind for that same imagination.

again, the details are simply stunning. From the hair to the necklace to the pieces of jewellery in the back. It's all so dam beautiful!
