Artwork Description

_______The forest had tones of amber and moss, and the shadows were a dusky, whispery purple much like the colour of her eyes.Where the depth of those shadows dropped away into blackness, she could see it. It. The looming darkness of the abyss. A darkness that opened up and threatened to swallow her, at times - a darkness that would slither close to her feet and plant little kisses against the hem of her dress.A feeling she had grown accustomed to - living there, on the brink of falling into the endless dark. It was a feeling she had grown to love.
_______Picture very much inspired by quite a few of the old masters. I don't know why and how, but that was what I was thinking of when I worked on the image.

I love this. Her dress is beautiful and the whole gothic air to the picture is what makes it great.

ok, i sat here at the computer for about three hours looking at all the pictures in your gallery, and all i can say is wow.....you have to be one of the most talented artist i have seen yet. Your boys, oh by the gods, if i ever get the drool out of my keyboard...lol. This one though is my favorite so far, she is amazing. The colors are wonderful (im a green freak though so i may be a bit biased in this area)and the lighting is interesting. And her dress, the minute i find the material, im breaking out the machine and making one for my daughter.

Your artwork is inspiring. You are one amazing artist and I keep on staring at your work. This is one of my favourites. Please, keep on doing what you are doing. You have many fans. I would like to add that I have seen unfair negative feedback in comments with other artworks of yours and it's so typical... because you, Linda, are an amazing and wellknown artist, some people think they can say and get away with anything. I hope you don't let it get you down. I am all for constructive criticism, but some that you have gotten were very unfair. Have a nice day and looking forward to seeing new works. ~Josephine

Hey Linda, I love this work.. it's amazing... she (reffering to the girl in the pic), is stunning, she looks pretty innocent... but maybe, she's got a darker side eh? lol, like i said I love this drawing.. keep it coming... *=o}

Your art is so bloody amazing!! I'm stunned and amazed. This is exactly what I love to look at. *Is jealous of your talent* heheh^__^

I gotta say...I'd love to buy a lot of the dresses you draw on your characters. I especially love this one. Your work is so beautiful!

wow... ubelievably... wow. The woman is just so captivatingly beautiful, and her surroundings just amplify that... wow. i'm sitting here at my computer just shaking my head and my chin at the ground, with my lips mouthing the word "wow".

Hi Linda, I love this work of yours very much, just like all the other people who have posted their comments. I'd really like to know how much time you spent to create this fantastic work. I love the effect where the end of the dress is made to be really dark resembling a hole in the ground. LovE it!

Oh My Goodness. This picture is so beautiful. I LOVE it soooo much. Please continue to paint these wonderful images such as this. It speaks to me. It makes me feel. Feel the darkness inside her, and inside me. Thank you for inspiering me with this beauty you have blessed me with. Thank you.

This is by far my favorite picture of yours. And my favorite of everyone's artwork I've found on the internet. She looks ethereal but real at the same time. I love gothic works and semi-gothic works, and she is just so beautiful! It's not in a drop-dead gorgeous way, but she looks so...I can't even describe it and I'm a poet! LoL! Anyway, I'm way beyond impressed. You are a wonderful artist!

Guest's picture

I've been sitting here, shocked and amazed at the beauty and quality of your artwork. I've emailed friends about this, telling them they have to view your art because it's gorgeous, haunting and creepy as hell. These images remind me of American McGee's Alice (a very dark computer game), and perhaps a drugged, insomniac, noir-esque Boris Vallejo. I love the writing that comes with each of these images, as well. I've been saving each one I view, because I know I'm going to want to view them later, and show them to friends and family. You have a wondrous talent. Please, continue drawing these images.

I love how almost all of your characters have a ghostly, ethereal glow.

I am in love with this picture! It surprised me because the girl in the painting looks so much like my self. It gives me room to imagine...it's beautiful.

Guest's picture

i love this picture, i saw it somewhere and i knew i had to find more of your work. it is soo wonderfly dark, so much emotion in her eyes as if she is saying that she has been through to much to take crap from anyone, that she has grown accostome to the darkness that she lives in, and her look really portrays "i am here...you cant hurt me...i have survived...i am stronger then you."

Why is Nelicquele, in your perspective, inviting us down?

from a fellow artist, I congradulate you on the wonderful way you bring life and beauty to every part of your paintings- from the fall of their hair, the sweep of their dress, to the shining points of their eyes. I have not had the opportunity to post or publish any of my work, and none as good as yours. As for androginy- it, in my opinion, adds a timelessness to their appearance, and an ambiguous quality that I admire. Well done.

When I first saw this picture I thought I was going to fall over in the floor. This girl, this beautifully dark and deep girl, not only bears a resemblance to one of the characters in my book she *is* my character. The poem only helped seal my assumption.
You see, my character's name is Skye and she is a vampire. She has the pale, snowy complection of a porcelian doll, long and straight ebony hair, perfectly pink lips, and dark blue eyes.
Other than the eyes being the slightest shade off it's exact. The resemblance scares me, really. And it's not just the eyes, hair, and skin tone. It's the cheekbones, the shape of her eyes, the arc of her neck.
This is exactly how I have envisioned her from day one and to see her looking back at me... you have no idea what a great gift you've inadvertently given me. As a writer I have the power to see a face so vividly in my mind that I could spot it in a crowd but I don't have your ability to put what I see in my mind into a visible form.
I could cry I'm so happy. If and when I'm published I'll be certain to give you a call. Because after seeing this I want no one else even attempting to depict my Skye.
Thank you so very much. ~Alex* (sapphireyes87@hotmail.com)
