This is Ariock's latest work. Was made using PS7 & a Wacom digital tablet. Model for this illustration was Angela Taylor - no picture stolen but a true model-artist cyber collaboration.
All comments are more than welcome:thumbsup:
Ps : I wrote this message in the name of Ariock (who is my long time love & partner) as he doesn't feel confident enough yet to write in english.
Looking forward to your comments
Best regards

I admire the level of detail in your piece and also a good choise of colours, the purple works well with the rest and the tattoo around her bellybutton is a nice touch. :thumbsup:

Im curious about the mirror-thingy behind her, is there a story to it? or is it a window to another dimention or similar?

Thanks a lot for your comment. Here is Ariock story behind the illustration :
""Thus divine Venus with the voluptuous ornaments
Deprived of the savour which the love lavishes
Offended by these souls violating the desire,
Changed her voluptousness the service of pleasure
Into a mortal plague Justice impresses ,
And offers to the died hearts, the poison of their defects..
Ven-ares was born ravaged by the tears from time,
And reigns on the Love like the Antique Snake... " (It's sounds better in french lol)
As far as the mirror behind her it's indeed a gate on other worlds, the window which enables her to scan tme lapsfrom her divine cave... The eye allowing her to see when love is ridiculed and the places where this nemesis must act...
Thanks again for your kind post
Best regards

Aricok Have made a fantastic work on this picture!
I really love the effects on the armor,the design,and the respect of the anatomy.
The gate to others world remind me something, but I love how she looks.
And the girl is so yum yum!
