Yay! New drawing completed! I was originally going to have a ground plane behind the figure, but meh. I liked it better this way :) This is hopefully the first of a series. Wish me luck.

Now in the personal collection of Katharine White.

(I just went on a rant about the apple thing in facebook and then felt determined to let you know that I think your work is far above that.)

Well thank you ma'am :) That truly is why I put so much thought into the placement of the serpent (i.e. not draped around her shoulders sexily and whatnot) as well as the detail in the rotting uterus; her punishment, laborious and awful child carrying/bearing responsibilities (which terrify me on a very deep-seeded and horrifying level) seem much more relevant and far too often overlooked than her trespass in eating the apple.

And might I add, ADAM DIDN'T HAVE TO FUCKING EAT THE APPLE. GUH.

Like... it actually matters and you clearly put real thought and content into it rather than, "Oh, well, I'll just throw this apple of temptation in here to make it seem like my work has a deeper meaning than it really does."

Plus, the scale of these drawings is amazing. They're quite near life-size... buh!

You're so great.

This is literally the only instance in which a portrayal of Eve (or a woman in general) with an apple is done well, in my opinion.
