The Countess of Monte Cristo


Badge Awards

Every piece of art has a story behind it, a story which adds a different kind of allurement to it. Such is my story behind this piece as well.

But....for now just enjoy my art.:nod:
Though I must add that I am particularly proud of the highlights/lighting here which were painstakingly painted with the mouse.:giggle:

Special credit and thanks to Leticia LadyEvilArts under whose guidance and support I was able to finish this piece in time. The idea for this art was derived from her imagination, I had a different vision for using this window stock, she just showed me a better and more beautiful one.:aww:

Thank you my dear Leticia, for everything. I give the whole credit for the success of this art to you.:blowkiss:

The amount of details is insane !
colors on point !
lightning is perfect !
the retouch on her skin is excellent !
the fantasy effect is great !
the dust on for ground match the light direction !
the blue & yellow tones are matching perfectly and i like how you added the black color to make it even better !
the bats are good bonus but i think you just need to add some motion blur on them !
the rim light with white glitter is catchy i see what you did there !
you knew how to chose the right stocks for this work !
i love everything about it !

Naouri, thank you so much for your wonderful feedback and insight into this piece, I am so glad for you to point me out how I could've bettered the movement of bats in the scene. Really appreciate you taking the time to post a critique on this art, I loved hearing from you.:heart:

Beautiful and very stylish. I like your take on this classic character and its representation as a woman. I can clearly see a lot of emotions going on here, sadness, among others, but at the same time impassivity and emotionlessness... and I think revenge is just around the corner. It's like the silence before the storm.

Thank you Krystian, as always it is so nice reading your feedback and interpretation of my art.

I loved the way you have described this piece, like wanting to say it's an 'emotionless sadness'.
Most greatly appreciated and am glad you loved it. Thank you very much once again!:heart:
