Esmeralda

I keep calling her Esmeralda in my head, but she's not specifically meant to be Victor Hugo's tragic innocent or Disney's less innocent and not so tragic heroine.

She's somewhere in between.

Screencapped over about three or four days, about six and a half hours total. I compressed it into a time-lapse video on YouTube: www.youtube.com/user/Mercurali…

Gorgeous. I finally found this perfect image for my piece for an event we're doing called Gypsy. I would have loved to feature it. Superb job, though!

Wonderful art!
I Loved!
I knew I had already seen this art somewhere, I have a book with her on the cover, this book is quite sold here in Brazil and this publishing house is well known , did they requested your authorization to use this image ? I hope so, below is a link to the book cover .

Congratulations for your talent

Arte Maravilhosa!
Eu Amei!
Eu sabia que ja tinha visto essa arte em algum lugar, eu tenho um livro com ela na capa, esse livro é bastante vendido aqui no Brasil e essa editora é bastante conhecida, por acaso eles solicitaram sua autorização para utilizar essa imagem? Espero que sim, abaixo tem um link com a capa do livro.

Parabens pelo seu talento

*sigh* No, they did not. And it's notoriously difficult to get your images removed from book covers in other countries. Thank you for letting me know. 

I swear. Every time this happens I come closer and closer to just yanking all of my artwork off the internet forever. I'm so tired of being ripped off.
