    ROUND #182:: The MORRIGAN

    DESCRIPTION

    The Morrigan

    First off this is nothing to do with the Capcom character!

    The Morrigan is ‘The Phantom Queen’ of Irish Celtic legend. Associated with death, prophecy, sovereignty she would appear to heroes when their life was in mortal danger. She appeared to Cú Chulainn ( from last week’s CHOW ) as an apparition of three crones, and her symbol, a black crow or raven appeared at his death. But she is more commonly seen as a beautiful and terrible woman with long wild hair. As a shape shifter she could also take on other animal forms. In mythology she is often seen as what is known as a ‘triple goddess’, incorporating ‘the crone, the mother and the maiden’, common across many cultures.

    The Morrigan was once mistaken to be a banshee, the female spirit of ill omen and death, but she is more complicated than that. She is not a spirit but a goddess. Your task is to provide your personal interpretation of The Morrigan. Keep her in the mythical past, so no updating, but feel free to portray her as either terrible goddess, crone, mother or maiden. However, because of her associations with ‘battle and death’, you might do well to keep these aspects in mind when designing her.

    Tried to incorporate different aspects of her in the dress. Wolfs skin, he three faces in the masks, cow horns, she has an eel tattoo on her leg and of course the ravens cloak.

    Final version... I was starting to tweak it, and should just stop. I wanted to give her a wild pagan sort of feel, and I love stone circles. I have one of her covered as well, just in case!

    Here's mine! I wanted to keep the sketchy, rough feeling for once, since I tend to work too much on my pieces.
