The Keres by KeresaLea The Keres by KeresaLea
:icondonotuseplz::iconmyartplz:

This is my second design for the Mythical Creatures contest here at Deviant Art.

They are my working of the Greek "KERES" ( [link] ), personifications of 'violent death'. Sisters to the Furies and the Fates, by many myths. They are described as wearing red robes, being fanged and clawed and eating the dead on the battlefield. I wanted to use a bit of a 'Memento Mori' ("Remember you will die") motif, as well as incorporating the idea of a grim-reaper in their visage. I actually found these girls in this name because I was looking up my own name. (I knew them as the Tenebrae before...) Sorta sweet, that version! I like it, since 'a' for the Romanian area made the son of Dracul, well you know, Dracula, I get a giggle picturing it works that way for me! This took more than a week to finish, with all kinds of hell (har-har) getting there, hence I didn't get exactly what I wanted but I got what I needed? It still seems painfully small to actually see the detail on this, but I do have a larger resolution I might use if this goes nowhere for the contest. ;) I didn't get to do anywhere as much as I wanted to to this to make it great in time. But at least it's here! Thanks for your vote and your view! :)
