Salome by cocoaferret Salome by cocoaferret
Salome, who danced the dance of seven veils for King Herod. Enchanted by her performance, he promised her a gift; whatever she desired, he would give. At the behest of her mother, she asked for the head of John the Baptist on a silver platter.

-----

I haven't read Oscar Wilde's 'Salome' yet, I've only ever known the bible story haha Obviously still inspired by Aubrey Beardsley's illustrations, though! This is concept stuff for a story in the making. I did say the Reverend would not be forgotten; he will be back :heart:

Wow, this is so grotesque yet beautiful at the same time. The hair is lovely and flowing >3< Amazing lines, and the varience in the hair flow makes it look like waves. Also, the composition is pretty neat- makes the eye flow down the picture nicely. xD

The flowing way you draw is beautiful. One things always leads into another, and it all fits together perfectly. Just thought I'd mention that, even though it's got little relevance to this picture in particular!
