Masquerading Woman # 5 (illustrated by Lukas Ketner)

On the night of Alain’s masked ball a flotilla of boats arrived in the bay and dispatched several masquerading women.

The identity of these women is unknown. Some of the citizens of Alain’s court suspected they might be noblewomen, while others whispered that they were courtesans. A third speculation is that they were nuns from the convent of San Michele Di Murano who arrived in defiance of their vows.

This woman is one of the masquerading women who arrived for Alain’s masked ball.

She appears in Endless Nights, in “Death In Venice” on page 12, in panel 7.

Lukas did a fantastic job with this portrait. I love how Lukas approached this character. This woman’s hair is exceptional. The details are fantastic and the shading is perfect. This is one of those characters who stands out as interesting and mysterious in the published comic and Lukas managed to keep that mystery and add life into this character. He made this character feel real.
