Banshee Picture

After my picture "Medusa" [link] I wanted to draw more portraits of monstrous ladies. This one is supposed to be a banshee or fairy of death. Banshees appear when a familymember is about to die and they sit close to the family or near water and cry and lament. In some stories their laments make someone die or become insane. They are often pictured as elderly women but sometimes also as young and beautiful girls (I wanted to draw a mixture of both). Their eyes are red and their hair is white.

I hope you like it!
