    Amazing :D. It really gives me a kick back to the Night days.


    Although...where are the amethyst eyes? :(

    Part of Valnurana lore were that Sartan stole her eyes and they were replaced later by amethysts.

    Yeah, absolutely nothing I can say against this picture. Pretty much spot on in every way. Has the ethereal quality of a goddess, and the detail in the background is breathtaking.

    Huge knockers again too.

    There's ... uh ... a lot going on here. So much crammed into one picture!

    It's the Dreamrealm so the warped perspective/50 foot high herd of nightmares I can understand. The background is a little distracting from the focus on Valnurana though.

    Great symbolism.

    My favorite part of this is the flowers just above her.  Those look fantastic.

    I like the sky whale. The black swan and the butterfly though. Fantastic touches and symbols of her realm.

    I do like the sky whale.

    And the flower she's wearing does look remarkably like a petunia...

    Really beautifully done, every detail is astounding and there is so much to look at. I cannot imagine how long something like this would take. This is one of my favorite pieces, by far. Thanks for commissioning this!

    (also, it is a violet orchid! She gave one to Tesha. I nondecayed it. So worth it.)

    So beautiful. Everything from Valnurana to the background just blends together so seamlessly.

    Vastar, Valnurana and Scarlatti from memory.

    Yeah, that's all I could think of, but I'd forgotten Valnurana was on that list before this came up, so figured I might be missing others.

    lovely piece, however, I do remember Lord Sartan tearing out her eyes at some point.

    Divine are remarkably adept at changing their appearance more or less at will.

    You know I just remembered something, shocking cause I remember nothing. Isn't Valnurana a healing goddess? That could explain the eyes!

    No, the Gods in Achaea generally dont have determined roles other than their realm and alignment.

    Although if you really did want to specify, the Gods who had skills in healing were Tarah and Oneiros (look where that got them >>)

    Actually, Mithraea was more of the matron of healers! Sun, growth, etc.

    Looooove this picture though. One of my favorites by far. :)

    Hmmm, I am sure I read something about her being associated with healing because of how sleeping heals you. I don't remember from where I read it though...that would take some looking up.

    Uh... uh....

    Hmm...

    Boobs are a little bit to spherical they verge on the edge of fakies. Nose a little to straight.

     I think bandaged eyes would have added a nice dramatic  touch to the picture. Make it a bit more intriguing as well as a tip of the hat to history.

    I was pretty damned scared about clicking after Lorielan. But I'm glad I did. This is wintastic :D  She looks far more appealing than the former due to her demure expression, tasteful posing and understated attire.

    I would.

    Is there a high res version posted anywhere? How much is something like this, like $3k or something? It must take weeks, too.
