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


Their gorgeous reference: Vesper Facility Contest: Meabh and Grind Reference by Wolvekit

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

Oh, no worries! I know it took me forever to finish this... and I have been so terrible about checking my own DA account! Work keeps me so darn busy. :X

I'm so glad that you liked this! She was SUCH an awesome character to draw. I really enjoyed working on her. If you like, I can also mail the original to you! Just shoot me a note with your shipping address, and I'll have her out to you. :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

Ha ha, I find monkeys in general to be a bit on the creepy side, but this particular species strikes me as eerier than most! They're certainly fun to paint, though.
