Pox, Is That Your Name? by TheMichaelMacRae Pox, Is That Your Name? by TheMichaelMacRae
"is that what you've chosen to call yourself, lovely girl?" the many heads spoke before she had uttered a single word to the creatures, "How... fitting."

Oh wow. This has to be one of the most haunting and evocative pictures I've seen, not just on Devart, but ever. The hints of story you've given in the comments just make it better.

You always amaze me. This is so beautiful. That's so clever the idea of it all. It's like Kali or Shiva and to animate they're arms like that its so amazing. Nice man!

As the child approached the creature frowned. They weren't really noticed. They were always in the background anyways. They didn't mind that. But as the girl approached, the creature began searching through the statues. She'd seen this girl before. Well, not her. But her figure. The lack of arms. Her figure. It was all in a statue. The statue had to be around here somewhere...
(hope you don't mind!)

TheMichaelMacRae Featured By Owner Edited Sep 14, 2017  Hobbyist Digital Artist
The gist of it is that this girl with no arms who has taken to thinking of herself as a pox upon herself and all those around her ventured on a quest deep into the mountains to appeal to the gods to take the place of her sibling who is to be sacrificed to them in her stead because she is not worthy. They choose not to kill/eat(?) her in recognition of the great feat that was her journey and they will not grant her request because they don't care/revel in her misery. Later the multi headed god, the wisest, in secret reveals to her that they are all old and miserable, they have created the world and everything in it and there is nothing left for them to do. They were meant to be replaced eons ago to be let into the afterlife but for some reason the cycle was broken and they were left on earth. Over time they have become fixated monsters that long for death but they cannot kill themselves. The multi headed god employs her to complete some difficult tasks in order to gain the ability to kill them all and at that point she will have the power to do as she pleases.



At least that's the first draft off the top of my head, I'm still thinking about it, how to make it more interesting etc

I've been appreciating high quality art for 7+ years, trust me when I say this is one of the greatest illustrations I've ever seen.The mood, the composition, the anatomy, the colors, the creatures designs, the composition, the details... I hope to reach your level someday.
