This was never meant to be more than a simple sketch but I guess I was in a good day and had the patience to, almost, finish it. After drawing and shading her and the tree, the only thing I felt like doing to that rock was kicking it!Moruena is a mistery, in the present day few know of her existence and those who do tell strange stories about her, like she’s Ennoia’s eyes and ears, she watches and spies while the mother of the Gangrel (copyright to White Wolf) sleeps.

You managed to capture a dramatic pose and a magical moment! My first thought when I saw this picture was, that there are somehow bonds between the tree and Moruena. I especially like her powerful, concentrated expression, gathering force for a spell, while the more away from this center of magical power the more misty and unreal she gets before she finally fades away. This creates an interesting suspense between a beautiful woman made of flesh and blood, full of personality and an unattainable ... mistery. Which I guess, is very very female... 2

There is a small problem with her head and the angle. The esthetical lines and shading, her enchanting radiation, all this fascinates the observer and makes him wonder what the story behind this picture might be.

Hmm, didn't I want to comment briefly? Well, maybe something magical is with this picture, which induces the artist to do more than a sketch and the commentator to drop more than a line... *g*

P.S. Don't let yourself dishearten by a rock! It took me a couple of years to understand them... (something like a personal joke) 12

Really inspiring!
Bem, agora que já pus o tradicional comentário à internacional deixe-me comentar à 'tuga'...
Não consigo tirar da cabeça uma imagem que vi qd era pequena de uma ilustração de um livro de lendas nacionais e em particular uma lenda sobre uma das muitas princesas encantadas que ficaram cá qd os mouros tiveram de fugir à reconquista. Embora ela não seja moura, acho-a muito familiar e muito etérea, daí a alegoria aos encantamentos.

:-) Sofia Esperança replies: "2 Obrigada. De facto, ela foi inspirada nessas lendas (ou segundo o meu World of Darkness foi ela que lhes deu origem... longa história), acho que sendo assim consegui transmitir a ideia que faço dela. Tarefa cumprida, então! 12"
