La Fee Verte by silvergrey La Fee Verte by silvergrey
The poet in his attic room paces by the dim glow of the oil lamp, fevered ~ again he is walking the thin line between genius and madness, waiting for his muse to come, a faceted goblet of potent green liquid in his pale hand.

But La Feé Verte is a capricious and cruel mistress ~ she murmurs promises of glorious lucid visions in your ear... but then overwhelms her acolytes with feverish passion for ever more, until one sip too many ~ and she is gone in a vaporous flurry, leaving them muddled and weak. Still, the poet drinks… and dreams…

Wow, this is really stunning. Her light red-gold hair complements the green so perfectly, very eye catching. I especially love the eye makeup, which really draws the eye and sets off her amazing eye colour.

Lovely colors.
Also love the style, it leans a bit too steampunk (wich more of your works do), Especialy with the border en the absint :)
The depth created with her hand and glas is great.

I think it's moreso that I love most of the time periods that steampunk draws from. This used to make me really grumpy--"those steamfuckers are just rehashing all the good stuff that goth/industrial/new romantics/etc has already incorporated!! Bring in something NEW before calling yourself a distinct subculture!"-- but I'm OK with the genre now :lol:
Sorry 'bout the tangent, thank you!! :)

so it's not just me!!! DA's been doing that to my photos for a looooong time...the preview is slightly desaturated. Ignore that and just look at the full view. No one else ever seemed to see it before; good to know my eyes aren't going batshit insane :P
