The Countess of Monte Cristo by SummerDreams-Art The Countess of Monte Cristo by SummerDreams-Art

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 !
