    She's very seductive in your depiction. Would be interesting to actually have seen her in real life, just to put a face with all the stories that have sprouted up around the Borgias. Some say they were as bad as we hear. Some say there is a possibility that their enemies wanted to destroy their reputation and invented much, if not most, of their horrendous deeds. But that's neither here nor there because the stories have taken on a life of their own.

    Nice work. I would recommend one thing only, and that is I would take a little more care with painting the dead man's feet. Everything else is so nice and delicate and precise, those toes are a little loose. But bravo to you! Great work. I could easily see a graphic novel around this one.

    The painting look a professional one, so harmonic and masterfully composed. I like also the steampunk twist idea, expressed also by the clock as an old looking mechanical device in evidence. The dressing style and wig look more like a Marquis de Sade guest attire, i.e. 18th century sado-maso apparel.
    So plenty of citations in here! Maybe the inspiration and reference to Lucretia Borgia is mainly due to the recent movie they're advertising in these days (here at least).
    Welcome and congrats!
