Mother, Goddess, Creator. She has as many names as there are languages but in the South she was known as the Earth Mother. Appearing as a beautiful young woman with golden hair, she was the symbol of fertility and spring, of love and healing. Her followers strived for peace and worshipped nature and the seasons. The embodyment of light and purity the Earth Mother despared at the violence and cruelty of man. She watched Kingdoms wage war against each other until she could bare the bloodshed no longer. Choosing her most faithful Priestess she created a child, a man who would one day bring peace to the world.

This is very beautiful :dalove: The amount of details is amazing and I really love the colours, especially the blue glow <3

Your whole gallery is amazing by the way (sorry for spamming you with favourites ^^; ) even your so-called 'speedpainting' is incredibly detailed

You do have the anatomy down very well. However, this is less of a mother and more of a youthful fertility figure. The maiden, as it were, rather than the mother, if you're familiar with triple goddess imagery. Strange that she should have fair hair and skin in the south; in almost all cultures, moving south means darker skin and hair because south means more sunlight (most of the earth's habitable landmass is gathered in the northern hemisphere). She looks quite Scandinavian, actually, which is about as north as you can get without entering the Arctic Circle. I feel her hips are too slim and her breasts too pert and small for a mother goddess, who should be associated with childbearing and fullness of figure. However, as a standalone with no title or explanation, it's quite pretty and reasonably accurate in terms of human likeness, so well done on that.
