Victorian Monstergirl: Ruby by JessicaElwood Victorian Monstergirl: Ruby by JessicaElwood
Second of the series. Fun fact about this one is she came out from a rejected commission sketch. I liked the pose so I finished it. Desc by :iconmocaw:


If anyone asks Ruby about her origins, she will tell of a long story of fantasy worthy of the famed Shaherezad. She will speak of a Christian queen and a strange egg found in a cave. She will speak of wars and countries that no longer exist, of her life as a princess in a far away land and how she was captured by the ruler of a Saracen nation and became the jewel of his harem due to her striking beauty and her skills in the arts of love.

She say all of this with a playful flick of her dragon like tail and a darting of her forked tongue, as if not making clear of is just a joke or the real truth. Is known, however, that she was one of the first to come to the brothel many years ago, and she has yet to age a single day, and some had claimed to have seen her breathing fire to light up the candles in her room. The truth, however, remains a complete mystery, as perhaps it is best to be.

There are clues, however: Ruby shows a strong understanding of the culture and arts of the Orient, especially the lands around Araby, especially as it pertains to the mythology of that area. She also shows a strong affinity for fire and warmth, and shows great satisfaction in laying by the hearth and staring long and lovingly into the flames.

Whatever her true origin, her passion and her exotic appearance make her a popular companion in Miss Michika's service.

Now this is my type of monster!
Gattlin Featured By Owner May 25, 2009
Very beautiful, not just the woman herself but the actual creation of the picture. The lighting is superb with the generous but tasteful use of highlights and slight reflection. I can't help but notice how the image of the dragon seems to glow on her kimono (if you could call it that). The detail is also eye catching like the scales on her lower half and the definition between hard and soft tissue.

That, and she looks downright sexy with that tongue :D.
PhantomHourglass Featured By Owner May 7, 2009
Ever since Deis/Bleu from BoF, Nagas are the sexiness

maliki321 Featured By Owner Jan 17, 2009
is she supposed to be a lamia or half serpent dragon? because of the ears kinda make me curious about that.
JosD Featured By Owner Jan 14, 2009
This creatue reminds meof a videogame characther called Damanhura the queen fire
And she looks in someway like a that, a lady with upper body in a human form (its more like an affrit that its a fire genie) but with 4 wings with dragon horns and the lowpart of a snake or dragon
The game its Rise of Legends and its a playable characther
ReverendTrigster Featured By Owner Aug 26, 2008
I really like the choice of colours here. The only criticism I have is that the tail looks a little flat. Perhaps if you set a layer above the colours to "overlay" and airbrushed some greyscale shading it'd make the light to shadow transition a little smoother? Still an excellent piece though.

The effect you used for the scales looks amazing. I also like the tongue and the dress; all the elements works real fine together.

Real awesome work!

I think Half-Dragon sums up my response...

NAGA! *Glomp*

Where is this brothel and what is the going rate?

Lordoffantasy Featured By Owner Apr 19, 2008
cool, dragon naga.
Soulvar Featured By Owner Apr 11, 2008
Glad you did. I particularly like the fact that you continued the "inhumanity" above her waist by adding spikes to her forearms, her delightful fin ears, and her sexy forked tongue.
cuttingedgecomix Featured By Owner Apr 11, 2008
Really cool! Especially love the blowse design:)
Alanza Featured By Owner Apr 11, 2008  Hobbyist General Artist

Morino5 Featured By Owner Apr 9, 2008
lovely picture particularly the *cough* shirt *cough* ... is that a pentagram behind her?
Enshohma Featured By Owner Apr 6, 2008  Professional Digital Artist
The appealing design reminds me a bit of Echinda from Greek mythology. And funny enough, I always envisioned her as a red head too!
Zevon-The-Werewolf Featured By Owner Apr 3, 2008
Is it just me, or could she beat the hell outta someone with that tail?
wrytergirl Featured By Owner Mar 30, 2008  Hobbyist General Artist
Cool pic. Rubies are known to represent love. They are derived from the mineral corundum (aluminum oxide), which is also where sapphires come from. Chromium give rubies their color. The name ruby comes from the Latin ruber meaning red. Just wanted to share that.
Shadowlore Featured By Owner Mar 30, 2008
Whoa! I just thought of something! She'd be a perfect villain for my supertoon fan fics! She'd have a crush on my fire Stripe cause he's a dragon and he controls fire. Um, could I use her? Please? :please:
broad86new Featured By Owner Mar 24, 2008  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Sexy, yet deadly. Good work.
masterblader5 Featured By Owner Mar 22, 2008
Wow, she is cute! Too bad she'd probably kill me if I tried to ask her out. Ah well!
SeabeeDaddy117 Featured By Owner Mar 22, 2008
Wow for the story and that artwork. You are fantastic.
boldmarauder Featured By Owner Mar 15, 2008
Yeah, only a Chinese short dress fits this character. :)
