Jackaluna: Lunar Moth's Flight

A flatcolor Jackaluna design completed for the lovely Pterolycus

According to old legends, many moons ago, a secret, hidden meadow existed between two steep mountain passes. This meadow was full of rare fire flowers, and lunar moths frequented the meadow each and every night. For some unknown reason, this location was under endless moonlight, even in the day time. This meadow was often sought out for its rare flowers' magical and medicinal purposes, and so the mountain deities put in place a family of jackalunas to protect and guard this sacred place. In return for their efforts, the family got to live in this beautiful meadow and set their sights on the beautiful moths and endless moonlight every night. 

They say that the Jackaluna shown above was born in the meadow during an eclipse, and took on magical properties of the rare fire flowers and lunar moths that exist there. On dusty wings, this Jackaluna continues their family's duty of protection, flying above the mountains and warding off those of ill-will.
