Death hoverer -English- Picture

WARNING: huge mythological explanation below--

Okay, this is the english translation of my first full comic, "El merodeador de la muerte" pages number are:
1 - 2
3 - 4
and the cover art is here: [link]
if you want to check out the original spanish version, look here [link]

oh, it is submitted on the "traditional" galery because it is originally painted in acrilics, altough I changed the tones and some of the backgrounds with photoshop (if you want to see how it looked like without the photoshop manipulation, see here [link]) (is my blog)

oh, also, some translation explanation:


*Parca (Death is a she): in spanish, 'la muerte' is femenine, but also, the other name, Parca, which is often used in spanish, is femenine too, and it comes from Roman Mythology: The three fates, also called parcae (parca in singular); Nona, Decima and Morta. At the origin, there was only one, Parca, but then she was associated with the Greek Moirae, the goddesses of fate who personified the inescapable destiny of man. Their name means "Parts." "Shares" or "Alottted Portions", and they were Klotho, whose name meant 'Spinner', who spinned the thread of life. Lakhesis, whose name meant 'Apportioner of Lots'--being derived from a word meaning to receive by lot--, who measured the thread of life, and Atropos (or Aisa), whose name meant 'She who cannot be turned', who cut the thread of life. (you might saw them in Disney movie 'Hercules')

*Ophrys ("son of the Limbo's flower"): well, as you can easily google, the genus Ophrys is a large group of orchids, which as you may know, are parasite plants.

*Euryale, the twin shythe: okay, the name wasn't random, see it says "forged with the blood of the same monster..."? Euryale is one of the three gorgones (or Gorgons) that in greek mythology were powerful, winged daemons named Medousa (Medusa), Sthenno and Euryale, of course. Of the three sisters only Medousa was mortal. The poet Hesiod seems to have imagined the Gorgones as reef-creating sea-daemones, personifications of the deadly submerged reefs which posed such a danger to ancient mariners. As such he names the three petrifyers daughters of dangerous sea-gods. Euryale also bears a distincty marine name, "she of the wide briny sea". thanks to that, there is a real animal called euryale, which is an Echinodermata (like starfishes and sea hedgehogs).
Also, and to make reference to the flower which gives the name of the main character of the comic, there is also a plant called Euryale ferox, (also known as foxnut, makhana, or gorgon plant) which grows in water, producing bright purple flowers.

BTW, in spite of what the image says, only some rights are reserved. you're free to distribute it, copy it, make fan arts (wich I would looove <3 <3), etc; but you can't make money with it, and you must give credit to me (and if you do something related to this, please let me know! I'd love to see it!!! >//< )
