A banshee drawing I've been working on for one of my courses (a kelpie will follow shortly).


Thank you very, very much for the Daily Deviation! :)

Your drawing reminds me of the movie Blair Witch Project. The color combination makes me think the day is soon to be over, and something really bad is coming. I also love the effect of the creature morphing with the tree. It makes you feel the whole nature is enchanted and against you, gives a "trapped" feeling. Wonderful job overall!

Wow! This is the kind of skillful I inspire to be :) Your artwork is absolutely stunning, and this piece, oh my gosh, it's so terrifying in the best way possible! This definitely incapsulates the banshee, and your art style is like that of a.. pretty demented fairytale book. I love it!

This is amazing work! It's so eerie and the banshee's gaze just makes a chill creep down my spine and a sense of uneasiness loom over me...

I knew it!! I knew I'd seen this image somewhere before and I'd been digging through my faves looking for it for ages (turns out I had literally over 10,000 faves)!

Saw someone had posted the same pic on Instagram about a week ago. I was thinking I'd found an art thief but now I see they'd simply redrawn an image. Oh well, now that I'm here I'll still show it...

My quest is finally over! I shall now return to my castle and feast upon the meats and wines within :squee:
