QOS 2nd screen.Szekeres

The window behind casts a soft light over the Queen as she rests back, alone with her riches in her private boudoir.

I like the consistency from the firs QOS painting with her wardrobe/ jewels even the pillow she is lounging on.

Thank you. That's how you build an illustrative collection, I have 3 images of The Queen of Sheba that show different aspects of her.

What a fantastic painting! I can't think of any changes I could make. I especially love the ant palace in the corner. :XD:

What kind of watercolor paper did you use?

Thank you...hehehe the "ANT" Palace... it's representational of her palace. I was thinking of the fabacher egg, and jewelry miniatures.

I used 185gm heat pressed watercolor paper.

Thank you.

This character I've illustrated "significantly" (ie. with very detailed works) several times, so she has become special to me.

That said, no new work will be done with her (in this version anyhow) by me.

Thank you. I did lots of research on patterning in orientalist paintings from around the turn of last century before starting this work.

Beautiful and very sensuous.

I was wondering, I noticed the elf quest artwork in your gallery. Do you have any connection to Wendy Pini or WARP?

Thank you.

I was with Julie Ditrich and Bruce love, co-creator (and the illustrator) of the WaveDancers comic series published as "ElfQuest/WaveDancers" by WaRP Graphics in 1993-4.

Those characters that we created that appeared in WaveDancers belong to Julie Ditrich and myself, which we are preparing to relaunch in a new comic currently in production called "Elf-Fin"

Thanks. You may have seen her if you play pokies. As this was created for Aristocrat, and is an "in-game, in-play" image for the game called: "Queen of Sheba".
