Bathory by dr-kelso Bathory by dr-kelso
reference > [link] by :iconmickymodo:
I saved the photo very long ago and yesterday I found it and understood that this girl would perfectly fit how I imagine Countess Bathory.

WHO IS COUNTESS BATHORY
this pic doesn't fit 15 century... but whatever :D it's almost modern Bathory ^^;


Watercolor, acrylics, white nail pencil (pencil for tips of nails... for french manicure :D), 3.5 hours

download button makes teh image bigga ;)

Distant, otherworldly and stunning. She's an untouchable lonesome thing, and I don't think anybody could have executed this better. <3 I adore this.

Fantastic. It could easily have been a very awkward result with this pose and perspective but you got it down perfectly :)

Very nicely done...I think what I like about this is how beautiful but cold you made her. Her eyes look so cold and dead, but she is beautiful all at the same time.
