Leanan Sidhe Picture

My take on a Leanan Sidhe.

In Celtic Mythology, a Leanan Sidhe was a beautiful woman (similar to a fairy)--a muse to a young artist. She would give him amazing artistic ability, only to drain his life force. In other words, she killed him.

If you're wondering why I put this in Horror, look at the man's expression (or lack thereof)... and at the painting in the top right...

I drew this in my grandparents' garden, under a tree. I was working on it for about two hours. I love the way the fabric on the bodice turned out.
