The Countess of Monte Cristo by SummerDreams-Art The Countess of Monte Cristo by SummerDreams-Art

Every piece of art has a story behind it, a story which adds a different kind of allurement to it. Such is my story behind this piece as well.

But....for now just enjoy my art.:nod:
Though I must add that I am particularly proud of the highlights/lighting here which were painstakingly painted with the mouse.:giggle:

Special credit and thanks to Leticia LadyEvilArts under whose guidance and support I was able to finish this piece in time. The idea for this art was derived from her imagination, I had a different vision for using this window stock, she just showed me a better and more beautiful one.:aww:

Thank you my dear Leticia, for everything. I give the whole credit for the success of this art to you.:blowkiss:

Discord Emoji - Thinking I doubt you thought about me when writing "But....for now just enjoy my art." lol. I will not only enjoy your art but try to figure it out haha. I never read or seen the story 'The Count of Monte Cristo' but I'm assuming it is some representation of it by the title. I will just tell you what I see when looking at your words through art.

When I see this piece I see two things.. The power of having a facade / keeping others at a distance and the lonliness that brings. The whole scene you have constructed leaves so much room for the imagination to play. BUT, that's what I see. Much less than I usually say but.. I needed to say something since I've had this piece open for the last 11 hours in my browser and kept looking back at it.

I do have to compliment you on the lighting work. If anyone that knows me here they know that lighting is one of the things that grabs my attention like nothing else other than an emotion through art. That blue / cool tone on top of that "AMBER" dusk lighting has simply left me amazed and wordless.. I think you've outdone yourself here Amber. In my personal opinion you have an eye / talent to capture emotions without a voice if that makes sense.

EDIT: Can I just say I want this ? Lol. I love it!!
