Moon daughter by dodostad Moon daughter by dodostad
Quick study for my illustration class. The deadline is in... 4 months or so but I'd rather do this than my design homework ahaha! I'm feeling a bit better now that the stress is mostly gone. Watercolor and a bit of white acrylic and gouache on the places where I messed up.

Based on Sami people's story about moon's daughter Niekija and how she fell in love with Náinnas, northern lights. Niekija was said to have round red cheeks and beautiful hair that shone silver.

Nah, she was banished to moon for all eternity if I remember correctly! Drama.

The moon's not that bad. You could order Space Chinese food. Only problem is that it takes three days to get there and by then it's hard as a rock. (I'm kidding, of course.)

Wow, I really love the colors and technique you used to paint this! It's really impressive. You did a great job capturing her with the moon in the background. I really like the affect of purple that you used as well and how just that one color brings so much depth, emotion, and atmosphere to the scene! Keep up the great work and congrats on the DD!
