Beautiful image… But my inner history nerd must comment: Cleopatra was an Egyptian ruler, but she was of Greek descent… So she would be Caucasian.
But aside from that, absolutely lovely. This is just gorgeous. There's so much detail right now to the grains of sand. :)

aww pretty, that slave to Cleopatra's side though, I'm not quite sure how she's sitting there like that. Her facial expression is mystifying XD

This is a really striking piece. First off, I love your choice of colours. The browns and tans convey the parched, barren feel of the desert. In a way, it kind of looks like a still from an old black and white Hollywood movie. The simple colour palette also gives the eyes a better opportunity to appreciate your gorgeous lines. It’s the subtle details that really make this picture though: the smirk on Anthony’s face, the relaxed yet confident pose of Cleopatra, the patient (almost vacant) look of her attendant and you even have a cat statue etched into her bed! The whole thing just really blows me away :D

I would like to see this piece which also owned but did not win, cause I'm curious like that...but I will be satisfied with this truely awesome piece. :)

~ Incidental fact, Cleopatra was not dark like an Egyptian, but olive skined because she was the decedant of Ptolymi a Greek who built the (at that time) Capital city of Alexandria. I pretty sure she did not as have violet ees though. ~

Forgive me I'm tired and rambling. :)

yeh...


i got that comment @ the forum... but what i don't understand is that people forget... hmm.. she's under a shade... -_-

and one would assume that if ya've lived that long in a country w/ the sun... ones skin would darken...


those 2 factors seem to be forgotten...

but if the shade's there... then why is her clothing so bright...

well that was to depict Marc Antony's enchantment w/ Cleopatra.. she was supposedly dressed to be like Venus...

-_-

Oh well, I guess some people (me included) just have to find something to be picky about.
I don't mean to offend, it just occured to me when I was looking at it. :nod:

I hear a color version exists of this... I love the bw though... it made it sing for me.

Seriously man... your dynamic, action stuff is great, but this is the stuff I love to see from you... softer, dramatic moments... your framing, storytelling, and mood are so nice... man, I thought white might take you, cause the man can do mood, but you blew it up... kudos!

yeh designer's really made me think about this theme...

can't jst go all flashy w/ colours and tripped angles
needed to show mood, and capture atmosphere and feeling

and it was also cool that 1st round was a challenge
