Very very old artwork!

Hey Guys,
I was going through some old high school (*gasp*) artwork and thought I might show it on here for kicks. :)

This is a color pencil drawing (using prisma color pencils) of random paper and plastic plates stapled to the wall in my old art classroom.

The Goddess Eriu in watercolor paints (but acrylic lettering)

This is a sketch I started- and as you can see never finished- which originally was going to be a watercolor painting...but well I got carried away in the drawing proccess. 
What I planed to do was create (in the background) more futuristic military people in a straight line formation.

The sentence at the time that kept poping in my mind was "No matter how advanced we are, there will always be war."

So I wanted to show an androgynous woman, head bent, deep in thought of ethics while men and women- to the side of her- are all looking upward, staight backed, with extreme pride on their faces.
 Normally I don't do futuristic art- it's just not my style- but I really enjoyed the concept behind this piece. And of course no piece is me without some celtic design. (See the triskele on the armor :)

  1. HI there,
    I found your blog while googling images of Eriu and Danu. I'm Irish and completely obsessed with these two goddesses. I just wanted to say I love your painting of Eriu, it's beautiful. Great job :)

    Grá agus Solas.

  2. Awww thank you so much! Danu is actually my patron Goddess. :)
