Moth by Zechira Moth by Zechira
This took way less time than I thought it would. XD I don't know if it's completely done yet or not, but I suppose you all can be the judge of that.

She still has no name- I'm completely open to suggestions- anything Irish or Celtic-sounding, or perhaps soft-sounding.

Feore was one I had in mind, but I can't decide if it sounds too masculine or not. :P

Anyway, she was partially raised by her family guardian- a creature that watches over specific families through thick and thin, forever loyal to them as long as the family is living. Hers happens to be in the form of a massive Irish wolfhound named Gin, whom she rides like a horse.

She herself is much more simple than that. She's shy, but has a quiet love of adventure... safe adventure... don't go beyond the fence adventure. While a little cautious around strangers, she's a goofball when she's with Gin- sweet, but sometimes a little annoying. She tries to picture herself as brave but... it's easier said than done.

Her coat was inspired by the fact that she's moth-like. It's sort of chewed around the edges as if sewn together from the scraps of other insect-ravaged coats and sweaters... Secretly, some of the chew marks have even come from her, since the love of eating fibrous material runs in the family. :P

This is so, so pretty, Zechira. The soft colors and textures and great, and I love the feathers-as-moth-antennae thing. So much fun <3 I also love how her character traits come through this picture and the design itself. <3
Yeah, this is really great.
