The Weeping Woman

Created for a Collective Exhibition in Mexico, as homage for a mexican Rock Band. It depicts my vision of one of many versions of the mexican legend of "The Weeping Woman" (La Llorona) and it is inspired by the song of the same name by the band Caifanes. The legend tells the story of a young woman who has lost her children, even after her death, during nights her spirit keeps weeping in sadness looking for them. Again, this is one of many versions :)

Thanks for watching!

Created in Mudbox & Maya, rendered with mental ray and post in Photoshop.

Un trabajo espectacular, la cromática y esos espíritus plasman de manera única el contenido de la canción.

Me encanta.

Stunning render. The central model is beautiful and the spirits spiraling around her just add to the beauty of this piece.
