Enchanted Elegance

Bellifortis – Queen of Sheba, 122r

The Queen of Sheba. Although paint damage has obscured her face a little, she is actually quite lovely– see the “all sizes” for a better view. Most scans are so poor that they only show her eyes, and that’s not true to the manuscript at all. circa 1400, YES 1400!

Jenna Final

I did this a couple of years ago, she is really the reason I started digital painting.  I was building websites at the time.  Jenna was STUNNING but she had poor photography.  So I had the idea after seeing some digital works that maybe I could do such a thing, and turn her photography into […]
