It's amazing how you've expressed the textures so well that I feel as if I could touch them through a computer screen. It's a real treat for me to feel so up-close to a traditionally painted piece through a website! :) I can see clearly the mediums you have used to create this wonderful piece which give it more of a story and unique touch. This is probably the best execution of traditional art I've seen displayed through a digital provider like Deviantart.com. You might be on to something. :) Sorry for rambling; super great work!!!

"This is a gift, it comes with a price; who is the lamb and who is the knife?
Midas is king and he holds me so tight and turns me gold in the sunlight.."

One of my favorite songs...Lovely work, congrats on the DD!!

Thank you! But all credit for her expression should go to the original photographer whose piece I referenced. Jonas Hafner is a great photographer and does a wonderful job of capturing expression. [link]

And thank you so much for the comment, it is really appreciated. I hope that you are well, and have a wonderful day. :)

VERY pretty! Do I detect a Florence and the Machine reference in the title? It's a lyric from Rabbit Heart, isn't it?

:iconvanadiumtaintedberyl:
VanadiumTaintedBeryl Featured By Owner Nov 19, 2012  Student Traditional Artist
Oh my yes. AS I was telling someone else in a previous comment, I put some imagery that I get out of that song into this piece. And Florence is much, much better with words than I am. :)
Thanks so much for your comment!
