This is part of a series of illustrations I did for a Gemstone-related web site. None of them have backgrounds because I was purposely aiming for the sort of thing you'd find in color plates of fashions or costumes. Originally a concept of a judge's robes; couldn't resist putting it in because I'm pleased at the way the robes and veil came out. (Also, I want that hat.) Hm, could also double as some sort of priestly vestment, I suppose. Done with Wacom tablet, using Painter Classic and Paint Shop Pro.
