👩 The Banshee 🧟‍♀️😱

in #ntopaz9 months ago (edited)


Another one of the Illustration made for https://pantheonapparel.co.uk/

There are many different descriptions of the banshee. Sometimes she has long streaming hair and wears a grey cloak over a green dress, and her eyes are red from continual weeping. She may be dressed in white with red hair and a ghastly complexion, according to a firsthand account by Ann, Lady Fanshawe in her Memoirs. Lady Wilde in Ancient Legends of Ireland provides another:

The size of the banshee is another physical feature that differs between regional accounts. Though some accounts of her standing unnaturally tall are recorded, the majority of tales that describe her height state the banshee's stature as short, anywhere between one foot and four feet. Her exceptional shortness often goes alongside the description of her as an old woman, though it may also be intended to emphasize her state as a fairy creature.

Sometimes the banshee assumes the form of some sweet singing virgin of the family who died young, and has been given the mission by the invisible powers to become the harbinger of coming doom to her mortal kindred. Or she may be seen at night as a shrouded woman, crouched beneath the trees, lamenting with veiled face, or flying past in the moonlight, crying bitterly. And the cry of this spirit is mournful beyond all other sounds on earth, and betokens certain death to some member of the family whenever it is heard in the silence of the night.

Una fotografía de arte digital bastante tenebrosa, ademas que los colores son muy representativos en ella. Muchas son las historias que se cuentan a través de los años y muchas de ellas quizás tengan veracidad. Tu historia es bastante escalofriante y mas por las características que das a conocer, en Venezuela es muy popular un mito parecido a ese pero el único cambio es que aquí es una mujer que llora por sus hijos quemados en medio de la noche, también se dice que es alta y con garras muy fuertes, quizás tu historia puede ser la misma pero en diferentes situaciones, lo mas frío del caso es que historiadores comentan la veracidad. Me ha encantado la forma en que desarrollas tu ilustración y como le das forma hasta obtener la verdadera imagen de lo que quieres representar. Muy expresivo y gran obra de arte, muchas felicidades.


La llorona?
Si es posible que tengan un origen comun

O la sayona?

Gracias @nathyortiz <3

Te quedo increíble este dibujo, esta imagen es perfecta para usarla en una franela negra, con un estampado muy grande, y todos los detalles que tiene refleja muy bien todos los elementos que característicos de esta temible criatura con la que la han representado en infinidad de medios, me encanto este dibujo @melooo182

Graciaaas panita @inu-jim! :D

Hace unos meses soñe con una banshee...fue una pesadilla obviamente jeje

hehehehehehe me salvo de esas cosas, realmente casi nunca sueño y menos con cosas como esas... en que estas metido? mosca. XD

Nice work. I love it.

Thanks :D

I usually manage to mix up banshees and harpies 😅 unless they’re related and I didn’t realise.

So the apparel design is working out well then? 😃

Haha but they're from different pantheons and cultures
However they might have a common root in a distant Proto-Indo-European culture...who knows...

Yeah sales seems to be going good! :D

How powerful ~ She has a power of her own ~ Looking so good ~

Thank youu @trueimagine :D

melooo182, I Need Your Help!

Both @ArtTurtle and @Artopium (and perhaps soon @thejollyroger) are being needlessly downvoted by themarkymark. The more the delegator bots
are downvoted the less they will be able to upvote your content so this is an indirect attack on you! This is happening out of
pure vindictiveness as you know these bots are not spam and are powered by your steem power. Please help out by upvoting this comment
in order to counteract themarkymark's downvotes. Then please use your new downvote pool to downvote themarkeymark. He is a witness
and is abusing his power as such. Please unvote him for witness here.
He creates blacklists of thousands of Steemians he deems "inappropriate". I believe he is a majority cause for the drop in
the price in steem as he wrecklessly downvotes random content causing people to want to leave Steemit. Since he has over 500,000 SP
he can do quite a bit of damage, so it's going to take a concerted effort to get him to stop. Thank you!
