Critiques


You've requested a critique; I can do that but honestly I'm not seeing anything majorly screwy with it, just maybe some little tweaks h...

Ir Ithil ammen Eruchin
Lúthien's song in what would become Sindarin from The Lay of Leithian.  The lettering is the written from of Daeron's alphabet (found in an appendix to The Treason of Isengard).  My calligraphy isn't really anything great, I know, but I thought it was fun to try; I gave the letters a bit of an insular miniscule feel since that's what they reminded me of (that, and Cyrillic, a bit).

Cathubodua
Cathubodua is a Gaulish war Goddess Whose name means 'Raven of Battle', the exact cognate of the later Irish Badb Catha, who is one facet of the Morrigan.

The original is a reduction linoleum print, meaning all the layers of color were carved from one block:  each layer was printed, then carved a little more, then printed again, &c.

Syn
The Norse Goddess Syn is considered one of Frigga's twelve handmaidens; She guards the door to Frigga's hall and determines who is allowed to enter.  If She refuses entry, there is no way to change Her mind.

This piece is done in inks, and is inspired by linoleum block prints, with their layers of flat shapes overlaid upon each other.  I only used five (translucent) colors:  the pale peachy tone of Her skin, the light brown of Her shirt and the door, the medium brown of Her hair and the grain on the door, red, and a dark indigo blue.

Boann
The Goddess of the Boyne River in Ireland.  Her name means 'She Who Has White Cows'; I've given Her cows' eyes accordingly.  She is one of the Tuatha Dé Danann and the mother of Angus Óg.  Like Sinann, the Goddess of the Shannon River, Boann is said to have broken a taboo of a sacred well, at which the well rose up and formed a river, drowning Her.

Watercolor.

Goewin
Goewin is a character from the Mabinogion, a thinly Christianized collection of tales from Welsh myth.  She was the virgin footholder of Math, until Gilfaethwy committed rape against her, with the help of his brother Gwydion while Math was away.  When he returned and found this out, he punished the brothers and made Goewin his queen to save her from dishonor.

Done as a commission.
