Reliquary by MoonsongWolf Reliquary by MoonsongWolf
Contest prize for Wolvekit of the character that they created, Méabh the wine-maker. She has such a cool design and interesting story... plus, who can resist the eerie yet captivating appearance of the bald uakari? :D

I had to re-sketch this one a few times; primates are pretty darn difficult to draw! I think I finally got the vaguely menacing feel down properly, though.


Medium: Acrylic paint

Gah, I haven't been on dA much recently so I only just saw this.

And, ohmygosh wow this is amazing! The DD is definitely well deserved! Thank you for this beautifully mysterious and ominous depiction of Méabh. The chipped window and the worn background and rugged pedestal highlight her longstanding and not quite upstanding business. She looks in control as the patron saint of her customers' darkest desires. She OWNS those freaking grapes. SO GREAT! :D

I don't know if you did it deliberately but I like the grapes and the what I see as wine he's pouring out, since I believe you paint with wine a lot:p

Ha ha, I definitely play around with wine painting a lot! Although the character herself is a wine maker, so it seemed only natural to include some grapes and wine in the artwork. :D
