Artwork Description

I've always liked this particular song from The Police, and whenever I heard it, I envisioned a 'Dune-ish' high priestess...maybe this should be Sci-Fi? Heck, I dunno....

She reminds me of Jennifer Garner somehow...probably the shape of the face and the lips. Great work, truly =) One of the best pencil works I've ever laid eyes on.

I've read the first few pages of that series...problem is, I read, I fall asleep. Bummer, because I hear it's quite good...

Very nice. She looks like Daenerys from "A Song of Ice and Fire".

Thanks, min! High praise, coming from you! Smile

I'm really likin' your style. Beauty with a tiny, tantalizying hint of the macabre. This girl looks sweet but perhaps she's more powerful than she appears. Maybe she's hiding something? Priestess, huh? That's fitting, somehow. Awesome stuff.

By god! That's beautiful shading! And, unusual for me, I was most attracted to your picture of the "gentleman pym"(?) I love your technique. That is beautiful use of pen & ink. I just, just, love it. It almost has a very classic feel to it.
I know what you mean about other Epilogue artists as being inpiring! There is so MUCH original and lovely art that doesn't get all the publicity it deserves.

This one bowled me over! She's absolutely beautiful. A high priestess for sure. You are very talented, Christine.

This is by far my favorite out of your gallery. Laughing out loud Thanks so much for all your comments on my humble art! Your work blows me away! I started doing charcoals because a friend asked me too, so I guess I need to go buy a conte pencil now too! hehe I have been inspired!
