Cupid’s Blood Fetish

I started blocking out this drawing this past Sunday and “finished” it last night. I haven’t decided if I’m going to keep working it or not. There is certainly room for some detail work and shading, but on the other hand I’m pretty happy with where it is. I may do a follow on illustration in ink or perhaps a painting, but I’m thinking I am not going to keep working this sketch.

The similar pose to Rembrandt’s Lucretia (1664) is not a coincidence, but Cupid isn’t going to use that knife on himself.

Cupid, ready to shove that knife in your back.
