Melanie Delon - ooooh, that headdress! and the fierce looking face paint! this is fantasy art with a bit of attitude, very inspiring.
I love seeing pics like because my Aethelings have a wide variety of skin colors. Fantasy art is too often full of white-skinned people . which can be difficult for me when my imagination includes skin colors like green, blue, and purple, haha.
