BE IN NO DOUBT - HERE IS AN EXTREMELY GOOD LOOKING BEAUTIFUL LADY - WELL WORTH SACRIFICING YOURSELF FOR - A WOMAN FOR WHOM YOU'D GIVE UP EVERYTHING - YOUR WIFE - YOUR FAMILY - ALL YOUR WORLDLY GOODS & CHATTELS & EVEN YOUR MIND BODY & SOUL - PREPARE TO BE ENCHANTED & ENTRANCED - SHE WILL HAVE YOU LICKING HER KITCHEN FLOOR SO CLEAN YOU'D SEE HER BEAUTIFUL FACE IN IT - WELL YOU WOULDN'T WANT TO SEE YOURS - IT WOULD DEFILE HER BEAUTIFUL FLOOR.- YOU WOULD THROW YOURSELF BENEATH HER HORSE - BENEATH HER LUXURIOUS CARRIAGE EVEN -  OH SO HOW SWEET THE MUSIC WOULD BE - IF ONLY I COULD SPEND JUST ONE NIGHT WITH HER - JUST ONE ECSTATICALLY PASSIONATE NIGHT OF GLORIOUS SPLENDOR.

I was in love with your work since the first time I saw this picture. Her beauty hypnotized me and the way you recreate the Countess is... amazing. So your work inspired mine and around a year and few months later I made this: lostinafantasy2.deviantart.com…

What I like about this is that it doesn't glamorise the Countess. As there is no evidence she thought the blood preserved her beauty, I find it irritating (although understandable) that that is the fixation of her, yet this image shows the cruelty turned into normalcy. The complete nonchalant sadism of her, and I love that. A truly wonderful piece!

Great stuff. Love her pose and facial expression.

The blood flowing down her back looks really cool...

I love how simple this is. If it wasn't 'blood' she's bathing in she could be any woman at her bath. It looks to me like we've barged in and disturbed her bathing. It's such an ordinary picture that you can almost ignore the blood. She could be any woman bathing any where. But then there's something in the eyes, a subtle knowledge, a hint that some thing isn't right. The model's expression is perfect to me. Despite her being drenched in blood I find this to be surprisingly tasteful and subtle. And I love the lighting but I should shut up here cause I'm just blathering on and on xD;

And if anyone doesn't know how to pronounce her first and last name.
It is (El-chebet) the ch sounds like Sh. And her last name is
(Bato-ry) Short A.
I thought I would include this since
I have come across many people who
do not know how to correctly pronounce her
name.
Thx again for such a awesome work of art!

15-16 Ağustos gibi İstanbul'da olacağım..
Oralarda olursan uğrarım..
Selam ve sevgiyle..

Have you seen the movie Stay Alive? Its based off a video game, it a horror movie... but it tells of the Lady Elizabeth Bathory story... Excellent movie... After the movie I had to get the book about her... Very interesting, but disturbing reading. The model you choose looks alot like the lady in the movie. The pictues you took are Beautifully Done!!!
