Corruption of Hersa

Hersa is a young woman, fueled by the world and it's wonderful beauty. Her heart cracks through her flesh with desire and yet fear as she is faced with how she came to be. As she grows and grows, it is an endless spiral forced by time in the canvas of harmony, but yet despair. Two dark entities rest on her shoulders--perhaps her consciousness? An endless cycle that began with life and death, death and rebirth--instinct through creation so that it could survive, yet through the foresight of thought is in turn the ultimate corruption.

Thanks for viewing,

Thanks for the Frontpage NG! :)


So my first though t when I saw it was that you created a picture of the Morrigan from Irish mythology. Then, I read your story. I was overwhelmed by the details you put into your artwork and the story behind it. I love the dark over tones in the piece and I am most enthralled by the ravens.

It is almost a shame that this isn't the Morrigan; the ravens could easily symbolize Macha and the Babd.

Nonetheless, this is definitely one of my favorite pieces non the site right now.

Aye! That indeed. But I do admire old irish folk tales and mythology. All very juicy stuff :) Thanks for the wonderful review!

This is just excellent... And inspirational.
It's like a new kind of mythology; where once, a delightful woman gained extremely powers: The eye of God: immortality, source of the ether, sparkle of life, the true spirit; and The eye of Reason: wisdom, science, the power to create, the power to destroy, the knowledge of the matter.
But then she was cursed for abusing her powers, creating and destroyimg everything in her path. Corrupting the world, so the creation of corruption began. She lost her humanity; her soul, her heart, and all the things she loved once. But when she realised her madness, it was too late. But in her repentance she gained her heart, her soul, her counsciousness. She gained Hope, a hope as bright as light, emanating from her heart...
And a task remained; an endless task: protect the life of the many corrupted forces she created with the corrupted forces she gained.

Zigan responds:

Thank you :) Great insight!

Utsuho Reiuji anyone?


Incredibly beautiful! The best I've seen in quite sometime.

Really nice and beautiful but creepy and scary at the same time.Drawing is very interesting,keeping your attention at the girl and the two crows,with the curious simbols of science and religion.Which one is the beast and the saint?
Also the position of the crows and the expression of the girl reminded me about "The Darkness".Am I right? :P

Zigan responds:

Thanks! :) The Darkness, the video game? :o If so, I did play the second one a bit but not far at all. It is interesting you say that as I didn't get any inspiration from it.
