done in Micron pen and Prismacolor pencils The red moon (commonly known as blood moon) often refers to death caused by either war or some sort of battle. But where there is death there is the hope of birth and life, blood and love being the source of that. Originally created as a Valentine's Day gift for my boyfriend at the time. Since then I am no longer with him.

I just love this pic!
If people hadn't of picked out the legs being short or the hand in a weird position i would not have noticed at all. I think it is great and much better than all the drawing i have done in my life.
I only found your gallery 2 days ago but i have already built up a lot of respect for you. Not all the artists on here reply to there commenters! That is a real decent thing to do. *claps vigorously*

13 Dawn Star Wood replies: "*takes a bow* Many thanks.. I'm surprised that more people don't respond to their commenters.. I think that it builds a good relationship with people. Anyways thanks for stoping by and I'm glad that you liked this one. ^^"

She reminds me a bit of the fairy from Fantasia 2000 - also a bringer of rebirth and renewal after destruction. Very cool pic!

13 Dawn Star Wood replies: "many thanks.. though she is amongst a grewing group that seriously need to be completely redrawn.. lol "
