The Death of Ophelia by AbigailLarson The Death of Ophelia by AbigailLarson
A little commission from a few months ago that I finally finished. I really enjoy Shakespeare's "Hamlet" (death and madness abound? Yes please!) and I think I'd say it's my favorite of his works, so this was a really fun break from the rest of my projects.

For liking darker subjects, I'm surprised Macbeth isn't your favorite Shakespeare play ;) But Hamlet is sort of timeless. Anyway, nice work -- reminds me of the actress that played Ophelia in David Tennant's film, which I've always thought to be one of the better performances.

Well the trick with developing a style is not to set out to have one, but to create art based on the way you see the world, and your style will develop on its own the more art you make.

So beautiful! Love it!!! Especially the way she's framed and how you catch her at rest in peace. I love Hamlet too and Ophelia was always a sad and conflicted character to me, so I'm actually happy she found some rest at last. Dark of me, no? Great work!

Hamlet is my favorite too! \o/
My love for the story is in no small part due to Kenneth Branaugh's portrayal of the title character, but I do genuinely enjoy the plot. Tragedy and wit and the ambiguous line between sanity and mental decay... :heart:!

This is a lovely portrayal of Ophelia. Your style suits this scene very well, actually. Beautiful, but loose and just a little peculiar. Love it. (:
