Bribe of Zimbabwe

Bribe of Zimbabwe

This Zimbabwean maiden has an offer you can’t refuse. Or rather two offers. There’s the diamonds she has in her hand, and then there’s what most men would desire from a beauty like her anyway.

This is an example of artwork wherein the core idea evolved over the course of production. Originally this lady started out as some kind of priestess (or what the Shona of Zimbabwe would call a svikiro), but then I changed my mind and decided she would be offering something as a bribe. Towards the end I decided to make it look like some kind of crime/mystery novel cover.

Now that I think about it, one could probably write a decent story based on an image like this. Hmm…
