It does look a lot like Renaissance art to me--a lot of the "dark" was
IMNSHO because of the dark background of the website. Myself, I'd love to
see what Ted Nasmith www.tednasmith.com (best-known for his Tolkien illos)
would be able to do with Herself's works and worlds.
Hmmm...I wonder how much Nasmith would charge? If nothing else, his name is
_so_ perfect for the project...
