The Morrigan by Lorellyne The Morrigan by Lorellyne
With All Hollow's Eve approaching I wished to paint a more "darker "piece !

The idea of painting The Morrigan has been playing on my mind for a long time and I'm so happy I finally painted her !! :la: I'm really happy with the result !

It's a more conceptual piece I guess but I really wished to focus on her face (especially to work on her eyes and hair) and to surround her with the elements that are associated with her : the full moon and the raven.

I hope you like this new painting and new concept ! :)

Thank you !! Morrigan is the celtic goddess of Magic and the underworld. The celtic legends says she is associated with the full moon and that she can take the form of a raven or a crow. It's one of my favorite celtic goddess !! =D She is also called The Morrigan.

Same here, and so far I shied away from painting her, but she's quite demanding.
I bet she loves your work. :)

Very nice work on the background and the composition, the anatomy of the girl's face may need a little work but you are on a right path! Keep practicing and improving, well done!

Ah, the Morrigan! One of my favorite pagan goddesses. As goddesses go, I think she's similar to Sehkmet, the lion-headed Egyptian goddess of war. Both are rather bloodthirsty and love hanging around battlefields a lot. :)

Very nice Halloween piece. I love it. Faved!

Thank you so much for your nice comment !! Morrigan is also one of my favorite pagan goddesses and I wished to paint her for a very long time. :) Yes you're absolutely right she's similar to Sehkmet as they are both powerful goddesses of war and they both have in my opinion a strong charisma.
I'm very happy you like my painting ! :) And many thanks for faving it !!
