Thanks! It's inspired by the way martyr saints are sometimes represented with the wounds and weapons which killed them, like this news.getty.edu/press-materials…

Thanks for the answer, is interesting to see this just as a conceptual representation, because the usual is to see this kind of images with well defined historic characters, and the "water" drips is a tasteful detail.

Interesting work. Well done !
 Did you have to decide if you should add blood or not?
Reply
:iconanotherwanderer:
anotherwanderer Featured By Owner May 9, 2014  Professional Digital Artist
Indeed! I also considered blood instead the water dripping from her hands, like stigmata or something, but in the end i didn't want it to look too gory or "literal".
