The Deed Is Done... by Cyzra The Deed Is Done... by Cyzra
Drow Priestess

Practicing some lighting and a more realistic face with this one. The costuming is very much inspired by the show Spartacus -- I absolutely love the gowns Lucretia and Illithia wear. I also used one of the promo photos of Lucretia for a reference.

hope you enjoy!

I never thought about how messy those live sacrifices must be.  They must either wear the blood with pride or have a magic means of getting it out of your clothing.  Not to mention how bad it would stain white hair.  Great work as always!  I particularly like the "pssh, next"  smirk on her face.

A sacrificial ceremony, no matter how erotically portrayed, is in reality a truly messy undertaking. The dry cleaning bills for the Priestesses' robes must have bankrupted the national treasury! Not to mention the torrents of blood pouring from the sacrificial stone; or the massive quantities of urine and poop spilling from the victims' bodies as they underwent their death throes!

am LOVING the details in this one! The splattered blood with a lil in her hair and on her fingers; the jewelry (nough said); and of course the GORGEOUS outfit. I want a dress like that!

Perfect blending!

So beautiful! The colors are awesome and the expression is just too perfect for a Drow Priestess who has just committed some terrible act. She almost seems to be asking "Who's next?" :D

I find this vaguely referential to the assassin in the Game of Thrones series, Jaquen. The casual way in which she is wiping blood from the blade, not even bothering to remove the stains from her face, bespeaks that she is used to this kind of game. What has she done? Something foul, but she doesn't care. This sort of smiling murderess is emblematic of the Drow in general, and the artwork is superb. My hat, had I been wearing one at the time, would be off to you, madam.

Well, unless you like shows that are neck deep in violence, sex, and all-the-characters-you-like-getting-killed, I can't recommend it. It's good stuff if you liked the books, or if you like political intrigue.

She's beautiful. I really like the clothing in Spartacus as well. It may be simple in principle, but the details and accessories really sell the costumes.

The colors and feathers seems a bit out of place for a drow, especially a priestess, but it is amazingly well done. Good work. :)

And I cannot help but say her face immediately reminded me of the evil lady from the Mario Brothers movie... I don't know that show so I don't know if it's the same or a different actress, though I'm refering to a 1990s or so movie.
