did this painting for my process-video this month in my Patreon, www.patreon.com/Stahlberg
Yes it's kind of based on the painting "Accolade" by Leighton, it's what you might call a pastiche or something, not sure  :)

Beautifully drawn with a unique story line.

The queen portraying her beauty and power with one dress. The gold contrast works flawlessly against her ebony flesh. The backdrop makes me feel as if Africa had entered into the big game of world politics early enough to escape the fate of slavery. This is also demonstrated by the knight's posture, he is humble and solemn (as fits the occasion). I feel as though this could be an excellent "What if" scenario type story. This African Sovereignty being one of the superpowers in the world!

This is a very well crafted piece! <img src="e.deviantart.net/emoticons/l/l…" width="26" height="17" alt=":love:" data-embed-type="emoticon" data-embed-id="276" title="Love"/>
