The Matriarch by khaamar The Matriarch by khaamar
Here's a piece that evolved a lot during this week, ending up on a fantasy-venician-indian-80s crossover sort of thing... The character here was taken from the drawer and updated a tad, check the next link for the real old sketch from 2003(?) and WIP: [link] .

Hope you like!

edit: Did some touches up on the mask and other stuff. Here's a close-up of her face too: [link]

Gorgeous! The transparency you achieved in both her clothing and the feathers gives a real sense of movement and other-world.

The mask reminds me of the dark queens in Mirrormask. My favorite part of the picture is the hands with the peacock colored designs on them, in place of feathers.

She is just lovely. Even the thumbnail had me leaning in closer. Might we get a detail shot of the mask/face?
