I'm back !!
Here is an illustration I've made for *Moemai
's collective artbook "Myths and Legends"
I didn't post it before because I was unsatisfied by how it cames out. I've fixed some details and now I'm fine with it ^^.
I choose to depict one of the legends of my birth place: "la Vouivre".
It's a myth from the east of France appearing in 16th ans17th centuries texts. La vouivre (Wyvern) is described as a beautiful and wild woman (or a giant snake) wearing a big gem on the forehead or the neck. She commands to the snakes in the marshes where she lives, hidding some treasures. Many humans tried to steal her jewel when she swam in the pond( she takes of the gem before going to bath). Many humans perished from the snakes she called to protect her "precious".
I like this venomous tale. I like this terrible woman.
PS: My travel to Mexico and US turned really, really great and I enjoyed it very much! I've posted some photos on my tumblr ->[link]
