Inspiring, I like the way you kept the character symmetric in this one, the lips and nose are beautiful, I hope you dont mind me using this tyle in a few of my sketches.

I enjoyed how much 'bright' there is in this, despite it being a particularly dark subject matter.

Where did the inspiration come from.

I thoroughly enjoyed how "going from top to bottom" the picture starts with the gore around the dahlia's mouth, then to the decaying hands that hold her face. All of a sudden, there's the life and beauty of a flower dropping petals into a white fall out. Very contrasting.

The most obvious inspiration is with no doubt the story behind the Black Dahlia murder, though composition wise I think I was most inspired by the concept art from a game called "The Path.

Mainly, I wanted to try creating something that exhibited contrast while maintaining a dark theme.
Seems like I was pretty successful with that, haha.

Glad you like it!

Amazing.

Absolutely beautiful work of art. Some people are commenting on how the white at the bottom makes it appear unfinished, and I do agree a bit, but it doesn't look bad at all. Maybe making it a very light yellow and pulling out the gradient by the flower a bit more would make it look more complete.
