Masquerading Woman # 2 (illustrated by Max Rugers)

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.

Max did a fantastic job with this portrait. I love his use of color in this portrait. The purple adds something spectacular to the overall feeling of the portrait. The subtle details on her face and clothes are fantastic. In the published comic, this character is mysterious to the men of Alain’s court and Max did a fantastic job retaining the mystery in this interpretation of the character.

Max also did a drawing on the back of this portrait. I'm including it here because it's awesome and I thought you'd like to see it.
