This illustration of Cleopatra really doesn’t have anything to do with anything. Sorry. I just drew it because I felt like drawing it.
I ended up leaving this a lot plainer than I initially intended on leaving it — In particlary, the hair. I drew quite a bit of detail in it at one point; leaving a lot of layered streaks much like I did the Elf Queen. (This illustration is very much in the same vein, anyways.) It didn’t really work the way I hoped; It added a lot to the elf queen because most of the hair didn’t have a definite shape – the shape of the hair here leads far more to plainness and detail, I felt, actually detracted from it. So I left it.
