Samodiva by vLine-Designs Samodiva by vLine-Designs
Finally something new from me! I am so busy with uni right now and I don't have much time for art,but still i'm trying find some :D
 This artwork is for Thy-Darkest-Hour's contest  Myths and Legends :  Win A 12-Mo. Sub.: Theme: Myth and Legend

I choose a mythical creature from the slavic mythology and this is the samodiva(самодива).
Here is a scrap from Wiki:

Samodivas (BulgarianСамодиви) or samovilas (BulgarianСамовили) are woodland fairies found in South-Slavic folklore and mythology. In Romania they are known as IeleThe words samodiva and samovila go back to some very old Indo-European roots with a meaning of "divinity", "demon", "rave", "wild", "virgin" (as in "pure" and "raw") and "rage". Samodivas are commonly depicted as ethereal maidens with long loose hair, sometimes also with wings. They are usually dressed in free-flowing gowns, their garments decorated with feathers by means of which they can fly like birds. Samodivas are most often described as being blonde, tall and slender women with pale, glowing skin and fiery eyes. According to folk beliefs Samodivas live inside huge old trees, in abandoned shacks or dark caves, near the rivers, ponds or wells. Mountains connected to them are Vitosha, Rudina, Belasitsa, Rila, Rodopi, the Balkan but Pirin is their favorite. They play and sing there or try their powers with the common heroes. Samodivas come on humans world and do this only during the spring and stay until autumn. During the winter they live in mythical village of Zmajkovo.

Браво харесва ми че си избрала нещо от българския фолклор. И самата творба е много хубава. Сега ми се иска и аз да си бях избрала нещо българско, но вече имам друга идея. Успех в състезанието!
Една малка забележка - само трябва да имат сянка за да изглежда че наистина са там особено птичето.
