Well, this was mostly an accident :). While I was working in another work, I tried to add some textures on the character to achieve an effect and accidentally I pushed the wrong button. The result was something that I liked, but didn't work well with the artwork... so I took the face, put it in another canvas and began to experiment with textures and brushes. It was so fun that I added some things to complete it :D. We could say it's a speedpainting, 5-6 hours more or less.

I think it's a good way to say all of you: have a creepy halloween! :pumpkin:

I just have to say I have gone through most of your gallery by now and your work is really beautiful. I love it all so much and I envy your ability to create beautiful and realistic/life-like images.

If I could afford to buy prints on DA, I would be buying many of yours.

This was inspired by *enayla's work, "Ungentle, Gentle" ([link]) wasn,t it?

You could at least pay some tribute to her. ;)

This picture was not inspired at all by that work, or any other by the way. I don't think I should pay tribute to something I didn't take inspiration from :). This picture was done after another of my artworks, when I was trying to experiment with some brushes. The result was more an accident than intended.

Beautifully detail accidental artwork! I like how her face has soft features to it and a gentleness as well, it draws the viewer in more than the but frighting warnings of the horns and nails. Also with the texture of the skin it has both a soft and harsh appearance but the harshness seems as if it is her trick to the viewers eyes, getting a glance of what she really is but it just makes the viewer think that it is an illusion, when really her sweet appearance is the dark illusion. She kinder reminds me of a succubus but then a dark fantasy creature of your deepest fears. Again great job on this, it really has a story behind it :)
