Circe by LunarisLarva
Circe
Hey everyone!

It feels like I haven't posted in ages but I've been working this along with other pieces non stop. This is Circe, the powerful witch Goddess of the mythical island Aiaia. She was the daughter of Helios and Perseis(others claim her mother was Hekate, Goddess of witchcraft herself) and sister of Pasiphae, mother of the Minotaur. According to Homer, she lived in a mansion that stood in a clearing deep inside a forest. Around that mansion roamed lions, wolves and other animals who were actually men transformed by her magic. Circe also practiced necromancy and was skilled with herbs and potions.
Others may have heard of Circe by the time she spent with Odysseus. He stayed on her island for a year and some say she had a son with him named Telegonus.
Circe's stories are very interesting and I could never cover them in this description but you can easily find lots of reading material online and in books. I'm really happy with how this piece turned out!

Hope you like it too!

Eve by LunarisLarva
Eve
Hello there!

I've been wanting to do my version of Eve for ages so I started working on her a while ago and finally finished her. Personally, I'm very satisfied with the outcome especially since it's a full body drawing. Research was a big part of this piece as I wanted to dig deep in the origins of Eve and look into how she is related to ancient goddesses such as the Mother Goddess and Queen of all Deities Kheba or Hebbat. Eve(or Hawwah) means 'life' or 'source of life' so we could easily look at her as a Creator and Mother Goddess.
I also wanted to distance myself from the passive, disempowered and almost shameful way that Eve is usually portrayed by artists. Here she is standing proudly and unapologetically with no shame for her naked body holding the apple which, after all, is her symbol. She is powerful and in control of her destiny. No snake or devil tricked her into biting the apple, it was her conscious decision and thank God(no pun intended) that she bit it! Plus being the source of life, she wasn't created by anyone's rib. To me this is the true story of Eve.
The lyric I picked for this piece comes from Lana Del Rey's 'Gods and Monsters' just because I felt that there was some sort of connection between the song and my portrayal of Eve.

Hope you like her as much as I do!

Gemma - ICONS by LunarisLarva
Gemma - ICONS
Another addition to my ICONS series. This is Gemma Ward, one of the most iconic models of the 00s who recently made her epic comeback at the Prada S/S 2015 show after 6 years of being absent from fashion. You may also know her from Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides where she embodied a seductive yet monstrous mermaid. She also played in The Great Gatsby, The Strangers and more during her time off from modelling. Personally, I am beyond excited to see her back because she's one of the most striking, ethereal and at times even alienesque models ever. Her work always amazes me!

Hope you like her!

Possession by LunarisLarva
Possession
Hi there!

I don't have much to say about this piece other than the fact that it's inspired by the idea of possession. My lovely sister posed for the reference pic and this is what I came up with. With this piece I also wanted to experiment with different techniques and textures. For example, I tried a whole different process with colouring the skin which I learned a lot from. I'm already working on my next piece so stay tuned!

Hope you like it!
