Dame Odessa by crayonmaniac Dame Odessa by crayonmaniac
She is done, my Dame Odessa for Dame Odessa :icondameodessa:
please full view for details :hug: thanks

Technical info :

The pose is from a pic with Rose Mc Gowan
The snake jewel and the ouroboros is referenced in google
The bench is my own invention but I used my eternal and beloved stone brush
The face is no references, neither is the hair, the face tattoo is according to the Odessa description
The hand with the rose is after a reference
The essence sticks and pot are copied from my rani painting
the glass window is from one of my earlier paintings and the outline is a brush but I do no longer know the author

35 hours of painting from scratch, making the white paper come to life, the roses are an idea of odessa herself

Right now I am struggling with my self and searching my brain for a word that can discribe just how magnificent I think that this is, because I personally think that sublime not only is too pale a word, but because in English, it resembles the word "slime" to much, and to associate such a word to such a work would be nothing short of a sacrilege. So, I have to settle for the work "wonderful" because at the moment, and this is truly a sin, I cannot find another one. I am sorry.

Good God! I'm a bit overwhelmed by so many treasures piling up in my message box... I've made my selection. A little bit late but as promised, I've checked your new paintings and I found an absolutely sublime Odessa here! From the little I know of her you've perfectly rendered her majesty and mesmerising charm. And I'm not talking about the rest of the details, which, ever than before make the whole portrait shine.

Chapeau bas l'Artiste!

I honestly don't know which version of this I like more, sweetie... I know Odessa must love this, but I really do love the other one so much, too :deviation: Both are magnificent, though, and I simply adore how amazing your pieces look on full backgrounds like this. She is magnificent: the skin tones, the musculature, her hair... and again, I love the roses so much, but the incense burner and the table are phenomenal as well - woo hoo!! So talented! :worship:
