Inspired by the song "Hijo de la luna" (Son of Moon) [link]

I bump into this video clip a while ago. The song is so beautiful and the story as well. As the song is being sung, there are images in my head..and I came up with this one. I am not too satisfied with the result, thus hopefully I'll be able to make some improvements later.

The lyrics in can be found here [link]

In English:
Son of the moon

Foolish is he who doesn't understand.

A legend tells of a gipsy woman
Who pleaded with the moon until dawn.
Weeping she begged
At the break of dawn
To marry a gipsy man.

"You'll have your man, tawny skin,"
Said the full moon from the sky.
"But in return I want the first child
That you have with him.
Because she who sacrifices her child
So that she is not alone,
Isn't likely to love it very much."

Chorus:
Moon, you want to be mother,
But you cannot find a love
Who makes you a woman.
Tell me, silver moon,
What you intend to do
With a child of flesh.
A-ha-ha, a-ha-ha,
Son of the moon.

From a cinnamon-skinned father
A son was born,
White as the back of an ermine,
With grey eyes instead of olive --
Moon's albino child.
"Damn his appearance!
This is not a gipsy man's son
And I will not put up with that."

Chorus

Believing to be dishonoured,
The gipsy went to his wife,
A knife in his hand.
"Whose son is this?
You've certainly fooled me!"
And he wounded her mortally.
Then he went to the woodlands
With the child in his arms
And left it behind there.

Chorus

And the nights the moon is full
It is because the child
Is in a good mood.
And if the child cries,
The moon wanes
To make it a cradle.
And if the child cries,
The moon wanes
To make it a cradle.

:star: :rose: T-Shirt Design produced by myself available here: [link] :rose: :star:

:star: The Eddited & Colored Version of the Female Chinese Phoenix called a "Feng".

:star: Usually Chinese Phoenix are referred to as "Feng Huang", but actually the male is called "Huang" and the Female is called a "Feng" (pronounced "Fung"), sometimes called a "Fong" or "Fung" depending upon the dialects.

:star: the Feng Huang is 1 of the 4 major lucky gods in chinese Mythology, Culture, Religeons, Daoism, etc...

:star: Part of my entry for the T-Shirt Design Contest for H&M & Madonna on MySpace.com

:star: NOTES:

I've been working on the coloring since last night, and it took me a while to refine the sketch edditing in Photoshop.

Yet, I still want it to have a somewhat faintly rough pencil feel in there.
