an initial digital work up of Lady Macbeth. Lots of things to be changed to fit the character better however I rather like this picture as a picture

I like the addition of the chess pieces - really adds to the grand manipulator part she plays. Also, that and the red kinda reminds me of the Queens in Alice in Wonderland - and how their crazy with power.

I love the chess concept where macbeth is concerned. Mostly because Macbeth isn't the instigator of any of it. Without her I think he'd have just gone "heh, these crazy witches said I could be king, as if LOL" but she went "actually.... we could do it"

The queen is the most powerful piece on the board, but the king is the one that matters. Coincidence?

It seems everything around me these days is Macbeth themed.
Ever since we started studying it in school, it's been haunting me.

I love the colours, and the chess pieces.

To me, wanting to choose Macbeth voluntarily is good enough to get you carted off to a loon house. xD

you learn a certain apreciation after a while. Especially now that I can make my own judgements. I don't have a tutor ramming ideas that aren't mind down my throat, I only have to deal with what I think, not what some up themselves lit professor thinks.

I love her scheming expression, her hand, the deep red and the lighting. 'Tis luscious. :3

I made a concious decision to illustrate it for university. After the horror that was english lit class I never thought I'd touch another shakespeare play ever again! XD

I'm glad you like her. I'm not totally convinced of the design yet but I'm working on it.

I love my English lit! Maybe I just don't have enough experience yet >_>.

I love the design, I think you should keep the hat, and the bright colors!

I'm loving the style, but the exact design isn't right for the character imo.

As for english lit, I never understood the analysis of text, or movies etc until I was about 18 or so and in my maturity I realised that things do have meaning, it's not just tutors making shit up XD
