My work based on the stories of Countess Bathory. Of course it is no doubt more fantasy that fact but the legend has quite easily taken a hold in our minds and she is no doubt archetypal but symbolic of many other human vices as well as that again of the dark mother , deathly saturnine, Binah and the daughter of malkuth...shades of Lilith, but in a popular sense emanating from egocentric fears.

Wait... wait a second. Am I blind or the guy in the center background seems Cthulhu?

lol, well no, but even that thought did cross my mind, Cthulhu being an priest and all, not this was just some hideous shadow self - that one which merely sits idly by, feeding off atrocity

Ahah ok, but it really looks like. ;)


Anyway it's a great piece, it seems painted traditional. :)

digital, but a slow process as i continue to approach in a more traditional way - i would like to think its like oils, but i probably work much more like i am using soft pastels and coloured pencils.

Oh yes, I read it's digital, but it's so good it seems traditional. ;)
