The Snakedance - born to please a godking
The story behind it:
She was the greatest dancer of her time, he was the mightiest man of his aera.
Their destiny was written before they were born. She was living a life she didn't choose, and the only moments
she enjoyed freedom were when she was dancing. Even thought he rules her, owns her, dominates her, he can not please her.
All his might is useless, her heart and soul always will be free.
The magical avatar, snake symbolizes her unbreakable pride. She was born to serve his godly majesty, born to please a godking.

The Snakedancer by ~TheFirstAngel is just a stunning piece of artwork, both in the technical skill it took to create it and in the story being told within. ( Featured by silentkitty )

OMG I WARNED YOU THIS WOULD HAPPEN XO

:onfire:


Her face leaves me speechless, she's so stunningly beautiful, she could turn a gay man straight, and women into lesbians. The concept behind her is wonderful as well, an untamable beauty entrapped in the clutches of one that has power, but even he will not suffice.

The eastern dragon made of gold, an Egyptian thing, makes it blend two cultures and styles wonderfully, though sadly I cannot say the same for the king's staff, or whatever that is, it looks a little odd. I can see what it's supposed to be, but I don't buy it.

The whores slothing about make for great decor, especially the black woman in the lower portion of the background. Overshadowed by everything, she manages to stand out as a point of interest.

Again, you did it mostly with a mouse so it's an instant combustion for me :onfire:

I'm not sure if you're aware or not but a couple of months ago I came by the exact image of that lady in the top right hand corner of this piece you did. It was on a myspace glitter graphic site, not sure which one though. I just wanted to tell you. Oh and awesome piece by the way.

(If I find the site I'll tell you which one it is)
