The scan took off most of the shading but that's not a drama... Originally done separately but scanned together, this is Arthur the Pendragon and Morgane La Fťe. Athur is in his late years and I intended not to do Morgane as a stunningly beautiful woman, but failed...well, I guess. I'm still as bad for frames as I was was with Lancelot...sorry...

I really like it!! It seems to me that you tried not only to design their appearances carefully, but also to give a "character" on their face...
But why does Arthur look angry while Morgan looks sad? Because they were separated? The one needs the other? i think that they were the real lovers, and not Lancelot with Guinevere..

18 Marie-JoŽlle Bourque replies: "Well, I don't want to look like overdoing this, but I wanted to make Arthur and Morgaine like they were looking back on their deeds and their lives. I tough that Arthur would look bitter, because he gived up the soul of Britain to Christian Gwenwhyfar (hate her...). But Morgane would look sad, because I don't think she would regret anything. She always did what seemed to be best for Avalon and the Tribes, and the Ancient religion. She would be only sad that it didn't worked....Thanks for your comment! ^_^"

I adore Morgan Lee fae. I have an obsession with her. She is my absolute favorite lady of Camelot. I love the book the mist of avalon and the movie was great. I hate it when people think morgan is evil. I know she has love in her heart. Anyways great drawing.

This is really good! I found it on google, as I've written/am re working a series of plays about the Arthurian legends. This image is just it!
