The Goddess Morrigan by wintersmagic The Goddess Morrigan by wintersmagic
The Morrigan was the Celtic Goddess of War, Life and Death, she could change her shape at will;Her most well recognized form was that of a black crow or raven who was her totem bird.
She resided to the North, which was the realm of the dead, justice and the element of Earth.

Updated 12.11.11- changed original credited stock photo of the raven for my own photo.
A huge thank you to the following artists for their fabulous stock:

(pardon me if this one is dry. it is my first critique)
Absolutely stunning! I love the lights and darks that are really brought out! Seeing the lady holding the skull, I think of dark magic in a way. Very capturing! I love the way she is looking and how engaged she is with the raven/crow above her! The only thing I have a problem with is how the raven/crow is standing. I kind of wonder what it is standing on in the first place. Other than that, overall, this photo manipulation is one of the best ones I have seen, dear! Please, keep up the good work and I look forward to seeing more of your art!

awesome work. Cutie Thumbs Up  not sure if you've seen it but john boorman's movie "excalibur" is by far the best version of the arthurian tales IMO.

My pleasure, your gallery is exceptional- I've just had a quick browse. Thank you for commenting, I can't draw so have to rely on stunning stock photos and photoshop to create my art

I have tried using photoshop and just have no patience for it lol so I envy you that skill. Thank you to for your comments and keep up your beautiful works I love them they are so how I picture things when I do pathworkings but just can't keep it in my head long enough to get down on paper and draw it so it is nice to see something so close to being in my head :)

Thank you for the lovely comment. I'm still a beginner with photoshop, it's taken me 5 years to get this far! Do you have a totem animal for your pathwork? I see lots of things in my mind but lack the skills to put them down in photoshop, which is one of the reasons it is taking me so long to complete my tarot deck.

I have a small lizard I thought was a gecko but it has a sharp pointing head not rounded and I love the way it skitters when it wants me to follow

Thank you for commenting. I'm not sure what a vector is, but I could try and blend her in more, if that is what you mean?
