Discover A Muse
Finally found some time to work on the ArtOrder Discover A Muse challenge (which also has its own handy dandy website!)
As such, here's my very rough and (relatively) small sketch. For whatever cosmic reasons, I decided to go all Arthurian (probably as it's one of my major inspirations), and do a scene of Nimue and Merlin.
In most versions, Nimue was the young woman who became Merlin's apprentice and, eventually, lover. She was also the one that ultimately trapped Merlin in the Crystal Cave. As such, I'd always found their relationship to be rather special, and considering that each, in their own way, inspired the other, seemed rather fitting for this piece.
That, or I am completely off my rocker.
To be honest, I'm not sure I'll have the time to finish this one, but a go I shall give!
