Eirlys- winter spirit by Shien-Ra Eirlys- winter spirit by Shien-Ra
Yes, I know ;_;

I already had too many characters... But she popped up in my head a several months ago, and I just couldn't let her go xD

So, I started a sketch to sell her design here on DA... Until I decided I wanted to keep her :I

Anyway, meet Eirlis (which means "snowdrop" in Welsch) who presents winter. There are some symbolic things about her design ;

- the orange rose who is frozen in ice, is symbol for eternity
- the lantern (yes, I spelled it wrong in the picture -.-) is used to guide lost 'souls' back home
- her spiky hair and fangs represent the severeness of winter
- she uses her fluffy tail to keep others (and herself) warm
- her eye markings represent how hard it is for some to survive
- She's quite skinny ; there's little food
-... Maybe I forgot something


Rheia (an already existing character of mine) will be redesigned as well. But first I wanna finish other things (Shaiyeh, Charlotte and Caroline; your birthdaygifts ! ;_;)

I really like the design; she looks quite elegant and mysterious :la:... I really need to start drawing hoofed animals (their anatomy is so difficult for me)

Woooow, she is awesome! I love the rose in the ice.
I also have a character known simply as "The Guide" who carries a lantern to guide those to their fate. :)
