Thank you Colleen! I went a little nuts on the hair (I've been getting really into crazy-haired paintings lately, lol), but I'm really happy with how she turned out =)

Totally! Real mandrake roots are even supposed to come in "male" and "female" varieties (I'll leave that up to your imagination, lol).

Thank you Dawn!

It's funny - I get a lot of emails asking why I don't paint more short-haired girls. Actually a lot of my paintings actually start off with the intention of having short hair, but I get caught up in the hair-painting (I love that part) and it gets too crazy, lol.

P.S. Whenever I think of mandrake roots I think of the book Howl's Moving Castle. Good times.

Thank you Sorrel!

It's a strange plant, with a quite illustrious history -
