Artwork Description

Sidhe is the name that the fairies receive in the Irish mythology. It is said that they are high beings as a current man, of reserved customs and very powerful. Her Queen, Maeve, is so beautiful that for the mortal ones it can be dangerous to look at her.
Some legends tell that these fairies are descendants from the ancient gods Tuatha of Dannan, and others assure that they are fallen angels, which were not bad enough to be sent to the hell.

This picture is my version of the Queen Maeve, with the forest around her.
You can see details of the face in this page: http://crisortega.com/rostro.jpg

I'm surprised no one has noticed the intracite pattern of lace on her dress sleeve! The dress has a Medevil-classy look to it - absolutely stunning. As for the wings, magnificent. I also take admiration into her expression - almsot mysterious. Wink The background of leaves is truely splendid. Very nice work...

Questiong: Were you refering to Queen Mauve, queen of all that is magical, I think that is what she is. Also, I love that you have done something with the Sidhe. You rarely see any artwork involving them. I think it is great. Instead of the normal faerie you have used the Sidhe. Although I like to use Tuatha De Dannon like you have said. lol. It's a very lovely piece an

Las alas , el pelo , el fondo , su propio rostro...es encantadora.No creo que nadie pueda imitar tu estilo , manejas el lápiz como si fueras su diosa.El fondo me encanta. Me he fijado mucho en los detalles de las mangas...son realmente exquisitos , perfectamente logrados para tratar de parecer tela auténtica. El logro es increíble.¡¡¡Te felicito infinitamente!!!.

The forest behind compliments her perfectly, Cris! And her butterfly wings are so lovely. She herself is breathtaking and her robe beautiful! All in all, this is an outstanding piece!

This is fantastic! The wings look so delicate, and the tiny flowers in her hair are a great touch.

I really love the lips, and the fabrics you made. And the background rocks. how did you paint so real?

Guest's picture

This is very beautiful. It reminds me of a children's book I once had, about a fairy with rainbow wings who wanted to protect small animals. I read that book so often, and I can't remember when I lost it.

Guest's picture

Wow...your portrayal of the Queen of the Sidhe speaks, it makes me feel like, well, it makes me feel pretty darn left out, actually. She's so beautiful and pure and perfect. You're a great artist - keep it up!

Thanks! ^_^
I love celtic mythology too. It has many beautiful legends and very interesting stories.

I think what makes this truely beautiful is her face, it just seems so gentle and kind and graceful. I love her wings, those little dotted textures. Her clothes are so pretty, especially teh patterns on her sleeves. The daisies are a nice touch and the hair is so wonderfully coloured with different shades.
