Artwork Description

After Grenat, I'm presenting you the second piece of my Precious Stones series! =D

Emerald is the most valuable type of beryl; its name probably derives from a Persian word, being later corrupted by the Latin name "Smaragdus".
It was believed this stone was used to foresee the future as well to cure poisoning, sores and devilish possessions. Besides, when placed around the neck, it was regarded as a factor of cure to epilepsy; in the third century, it was also routinely suggested to combat eyestrain.
At the same time, emerald symbolizes Taurus, sign associated with the yellow color and with Venus, Roman god of beauty and love.

The Noise filter was used in the end of the process to give a final texture to the drawing, as well as some references to draw her corset and the stone. Smile
I really hope you'll like it!! Laughing out loud
