This image was hand airbrushed on illustration board. The model is Jessamyne Rose, a professional model that posed for me as reference to paint this image. The image is featured as the cover for Heavy Metal Magazine in May 2009

This is so amazing! You are an extremely good painter, and you’ve certainly got the hang of drawing women. She is beautiful, and I love how you drew the fabrics; the folds look so realistic. The backround is very good as well, I can see that you have put much time and effort into it. All of your work is admirable, and this is no exception. 2

I believe at Imbolc (Feb 2) there is a green wind that comes from the Pliades--it may be one of the other sabbats. If it is Imbolc it would be more appropriate for Brigid. But no matter. That was the first thing I thought of when I saw the green. I believe it is healing energy flowing from the Pliades. So mayhap you channeled that knowledge without realizing. So little is known about Rhiannon herself.

Beautiful work.

No way! i cant believe this is the one that made the heavy metal cover magazine! Do you know that i never knew about that magazine and i only buy it because of the cover!? It is an amazing drawing and she inspired me to make a great book! Thx! Amazing drawing!

:-) Michael Calandra replies: "I have done three covers so far for Heavy Metal. "Eclipse" and "Always’ were the others. "
