Ang already said thanks, but I'm really thrilled you uploaded this (as well as the other images) to Night's Doorstep. I saw this piece pop up a little while ago on Facebook and I loved how you caught a side of Phedre we rarely get to see. Her carefree, slightly indulgent expression really captures the contented vanity we find in her character in those early days, and I also quite like that you showed her from the front rather than worrying about her marque.
The dart is well handled as well, very noticeable (even in the thumbnail version) but not something overt and out of place. A really great rendition of that '
etal on dark waters' description.
I would really love to see a companion piece to this later on, showing how much she's grown and changed, particularly after confronting Melisande.
Lovely work. I look forward to seeing more!
