Bone Queen by aruarian-dancer Bone Queen by aruarian-dancer
Developed from the sketch done during Sketch Fest #32 (Jan. 2013) to a prompt, "Bone Queen", this is painted in ink and watercolor on 5" x 7" vellum (140 lb.). As I was completing it, I wished I had started the sketch on a larger sheet of paper, especially when I was going over the eye details with my smallest brush. XD But since I had already inked the lines, I went ahead and completed her with watercolor. This was one of these cases where the image had the mind of its own, and I ended up with a pretty crazy image. XD

Mainly inspired by the Day of the Dead skull-painted face, but she is also lavishly decorated with bleeding poppies, feathers, bird skull jewelry, and skeleton body paint. Just a random creation to a prompt. ^^

I'm glad the original has been claimed by a collector since I can't seem to look at her longer than 30 seconds before I get a strange, creepy feeling... ^^;

Haunting, inviting, and a bit intimidating, with an emotional background tone I can't quite place.
