Paint it Black by minimonster777 Paint it Black by minimonster777
For Spiggy

and

Anyone who gets the reference gets 20 goth points. No cheating either.

It's REALLY obscure. Not obscure enough to where it doesn't turn up in a google search (I've made sure) but obscure nonetheless.

GUESSES
No, it isn't a reference to the song by The Rolling Stones.
Not Voltaire.

For the art: This is really cool. I like the style you have, compared to everyone else who is drawing Geisha these days.

For the title: Could it be Inkubus Sukkubus? (though I'm sure someone has already said this.)

Oooh pretty. Love the colouring and the various patterns and effects are great too, what with the realistic paint splats and the kimono textury pattern thing.

As for the title, the first thing that popped in my head was Utada Hikaru, what with the oriental-ness and all... but you mentioned it being goth so it can't be that...
How about Rob Zombie?
... I dunno XD

A good work in any case... I likes it ^^

Classy and stylish once again. Very flexible pose i must say. What catches the eye the most about the picture is probably the skin colour once compared to the rest of the picture, which is very well placed when considering the hair is dark-redish. Very sweet ^^

I'm not really good at guessing songs, but *clenches his fist* I will do my best to find out what made you draw this fantastic piece. Whatever it was, it must have been extremely inspiring.

There's a movie called Paint It Black...and the background in this looks kind of like clay...

XD

But, my first thought WAS Rolling Stones...I loveses that song...but it's SO not goth. XD It doesn't take itself seriously, and that's one thing you have to do to be goth. ^-

Aw, but Voltaire is awesome. 'Specially his Star Trek songs. Gotta love "The Sexy Data Tango."

Paint it Black sounds really damn familiar. Then again, almost every goffique band seems to have a song named that. *clutches Goth Card to prevent peeps from eating it*

Actually, I think theirs is a remake of the Rollings Stones song, but it's my best guess. :) And I'm no goth.
Nice picture, I like her hair.

Damn... I thought it was a reference to Rolling Stones too. I guess I'm just not goth. Boo hoo... and I had such respect for the goths too. (I'm being sarcastic there).

Anyway, I really like the layout of this, the wild arms and layers of splatter marks. I like how you had her pinky out too. If she's going to make a huge mess that doesn't me she isn't dainty.

Haarg, Jenn is a closet goth. You know, what with the listening to the music, but not listening to music past 1994, and what with the wearing of the black, but nothing from HotTopic and Fitch.

That sentence didn't actualy make sense but I'll leave it in there for your amusement.

The Rolling Stones did a song called Paint it Black.

However, that is not what this is a reference to.

hum...I dunno if that's like a trick question or not, the only obvious thing I can think of is the Rolling Stones song. anyway, the elongated arms and wildass proportion are real appealing and caught my eye even from the main page. love the blushy skintone too.
