Happy Walpurgisnacht/Beltane everyone!
Got heavily inspired by the video (and music) of Faun's Walpurgisnacht
, in addition to the fact that yesterday was Walpurgisnacht :>
While most people know Walpurgisnacht to be a night where witches gather at the Brocken (the highest peak of a mountain in germany), I understand it as a ritual for fertility, which it probably was at its roots, stuffed with pagan rites which made people believe it is a thing witches do. I love the tradition of it, and despite the fact that I never go out to party as most people do on 30th of April, I celebrated the ritual in my own way ;3
The characters are two random Faraksha (to those that know Lullaby, these are of the same Race as Duhliya's mom), frolicing around. The piece has a lot of symbolism hidden all over. Can you interpret some of them?
This piece was drawn entirely in a new Art Program I aquired named "Paintstorm Studio
". It has amazing capabilities and is avalible for a very affordable price (19$). Well worth a check out!
