Mother of Mothers by STelari Mother of Mothers by STelari

My work may not be reproduced, copied, edited, 
published, transmitted or uploaded in any way.


Second part of the commission for Lady-woods, with her character Xera, a very old air nymph, a Mother of Mothers, who leads the Air Clan. She lost her only daughter and heir centuries ago. She is strict and rules the air nymphs with an iron grip. Generally a good leader; making good decisions, based on a sound mind and centuries of wisdom. But she inspires a lot of fear and is not known for her compassion.

Please don't repost on tumblr, here's a link to my post.

Watercolour, graphite, white gel pen on 15 x 20.5 cm watercolour paper.
Soundtrack: Loreena McKennitt - Ancient Pines

when I look at Her, I start hearing a flowing melody - same sad and wise as this lace but strong-willed nymph...
thank you for this pleasure of routine escape and imagining stories <3

Character's hair are very original, it gives him an air side. I find the beautiful sky with heavy clouds (very stylish) and touches of color! :)

This is an apsaras , in Buddhism, waiting for wayward souls to judge before they reincarnate in the next life. Here is information on apsarases: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Apsara
