WIP [Beauty]

This piece was inspired by my favorite In This Moment song, Beast Within. I love the concept of the beauty also being the beast, and I liked the challenge of creating something that could be both beautiful and fierce at the same time. I also had a lot of fun doing the really ornate background in the Jane piece, so I tried that again.

First time through I sketched this over the course of a day with charcoals while I was on vacation. While I loved the image, I didn't feel like I had done the idea justice, so I started again with materials I was more familiar with.



I still haven't gotten this piece scanned in, so I'm just going to show you the best picture I've got. One day I'll get my scanner working again, and then I'll put up a whoooole bunch of new prints in my shop.
 

I really like how the background came out, but I have to be honest, I kind of want to try it again. I guess this will be the piece that I'll never be satisfied with. :]
