Mother's Day / Alabaster and Rose by ickessler
This is my entry for the Epilogue Forum 'anti-cliche' contest.
Two women depicted here, one alive and one a memorial statue. Both are in full armor, with their hair tied back. I'll have none of your half-naked bimbettes with hair blowing in the wind. One of them is even old. These women are strong, tough, and prepared for battle.
I'm very much into symbolic meaning in my illos, so if you think there is signifigance to some design or small detail, you're probably right.
