A portrait of the goddess Morrigan draw for the samhain (the celtic celebration of 31 october) . She is a goddess of battle, strife, and fertility . She sometimes appears in the form of a crow, flying above the warriors. She is generally considered a war deity comparable with the Germanic Valkyries, although her association with cattle also suggests a role connected with fertility, wealth, and the land.

i used this french tuto for the background : www.octopussy-world.com/tutori…

The coloration was made with Paint tool Sai

Hmm, I thought Morrigain was a Celtic goddess. Why else she is "dress" like a female Pict warrior.

Because Picts are celtes. All celtes painted their bodies for the fight. Cesar said himself that Gallic warrior doing this.
