Salome by sinhalite Salome by sinhalite
This is probably my most detailed artwork so far. Some parts took ages to make :-) For those who don't know: Salome was the daughter of Herodias, a beautiful woman whose erotic dance led to John the Baptist's death.

I know her pose is a bit exaggerated, but i like the composition and mood it gives to the painting.

All painted in photoshop, no photomanipulation or painting over. Some reference used for anatomy and jewelery, nothing significant though. I just watched bellydancers photos and movies.

I cannot say how long it took me as I painted this in my spare time with loots of interruptions in between. 40h maybe. I hope you'll like it.

Tantalizing without being overt. I love the wispyness of the scarf she's dancing with. Her face too indicates she's lost in the dance herself.
