The young queen Boudicca by crayonmaniac The young queen Boudicca by crayonmaniac
Dear Alan :iconnikon-aj: , may I present you my young queen Boudicca.
The war with the Romans is still in the future but one can already see that this girl will become a woman to reckon with.

I hope you like her.
My model is the most beautiful Candice Swanepoel, google her and you will find the reference easily.

The unpractical bra is my own creation (so much fun) the girdle should be leather but it turned out something else but it is all my own.
Just the bellybutton tattoo was copied from internet (if one googles celtic tattoos one find it easily) I copied it scrupulously and it took some time. Those tattoos are quite a learning process, I found out that making them realistic is difficult so I first paint them in a lower opacity and then in a higher opacity over the first painting.

I could have painted crowns, torcs, bracelets and pendants and I was tempted but in the end I wanted her natural beauty to be the only adornment.

This painting took me over 20 hours in hard work and detailing but I find her my best achievement till now.

Thanks to all my friends who support me and help me and follow my art. I hope you'll take her into your hearts and your favourite folders (lol) like the other works. That will keep me getting better and better in 2010.

Boudicca was quite a fighter and led such a revolt against the Romans around early London, she was the inspiration of the popular character of Red Sonja by Robert E. Howard (another Texas boy LOL)
