WIP - Deirdre and Naoise Picture


Lineart for the deviation I'm currently working on. This will be the base I will use for my painting.

It depicts the moment when Deirdre of the Sorrows and Naoise meet for the first time.
Deirdre and Naoise are the star-crossed lovers from one of the most famous legends of Celtic Mythology - "Longas mac nUislenn" (The Exile of the Sons of Uisnech).
She is to marry the King of Ulster, Conchobar mac Nessa, when she meets Naoise, one of Ulster's greatest heroes, and they fall in love. Of course, tragedy ensues...
