I have depicted Mordred as a young man. This is the time where Mordred is truly becoming evil after he has realized that he can't escape his fate. Mordred is one of my favorite characters from the legends of King Arthur. He is the bastard some of Arthur and his sister Morgause (in some cases Morgan le Fey). The product of an incestuous union, he was destined to fulfill the horrible prophecy of killing his own father. I tried to right a poem, but I don't really have a knack for it...

How long I've tried to fight you
I thought I could escape
I thought we made our own destiny
All I wanted was love
And I tried with everything I had
But every step and you pull me back again
I can't fight you any more
I feel my soul leaving
behind an empty shell
A mechanical
Come in, fill it
Mordred is yours

Oil and acrylis on canvas, I also have a detail shot of his face in my gallery.

I really like the picture, the eyes are so intense. I have a question about the poem though. I am writing a book about Mordred, and I would really like to use your poem at the front of it. Email me!

Reminds me of the blind Guardian song, 'mordred's song'

I've lost my battle before it starts
My first breath wasn't done
My spirit's sunken deep into the ground
Why am I alone
I can hear my heartbeat
Silence's all around

See hate will rise
So don't come closer
Fear your child
Born with a king's heart
But fate fooled me
And changed my cards
None asked if I want it
If I like it

Pain inside is rising
I am the fallen one
A figure in an old game
No joker's on my side
I plunged into misery
I'll turn off the light
And murder the dawn
Turn off the light
And murder the dawn

Nothing else but laughter is around me
Noone can heal me
Nothing can save me
Noone can heal me
I've gone beyond the truth
It's just another lie
Wash away the blood on my hands
My father's blood
In agony we're unified

I never wanted to be
What they told me to be
Fulfill my fate then I'll be free
God knows how long I tried to change fate

I plunged into misery
I'll turn off the light
And murder the dawn
Turn off the light
And murder the dawn!!!

amazing pic, p.s. i love mordred too haha

I’ve always felt that Morgaine and Mordred were misunderstood. I think your portrait is absolutely amazing. He looks sad, and thoughtful and like he’s finally come to the realization that he can’t escape his destiny, however tortured it may be. I really like the poem too. 2

Wow. Mordred is my favourite person, and always has been. The picture is awesome, as is the poem. Good job!

I haven’t read all of the comments so I don’t know if anyone has mentioned this already, but he looks an awful lot like Noel Fielding! I like his lips and hair
