nice tentacle creeping off her finger, you have a commentary that beams through dead eyes. Beauty in the wicked or the wicked attempting beauty.

Beautiful technique. Interesting anatomy! Reminds me of a hybridization of Romanticism, Symbolism, and Surrealism.

They kind of remind me of classical works. Large Odalisque or Titian, and almost a parody of 19th century portraiture.
