Narcissus, Narcissus... by ShamanEileen Narcissus, Narcissus... by ShamanEileen
A scene from a story that's been in my head for a few years... This is a conversation between Justice and Manes Larvae, Guardian of the Dead.

The ugliest truth spoken by the wisest voice.


Justice and Manes Larvae (C) *ShamanEileen

The original sentence is here, though:

So yeah, xD Finally commenting!!! First off, I like the composition of this and the limited colour palette~ Justice looks like a really interesting character already, and I kinda want to touch her hair for some reason :D Yeah it looks flowy...

And the character of Manes is pretty cool, I'm quite interested to see more of this stuff, I'd like to see the designs of the other Zodiacs!

Oh, and the thing Justice is saying... I'm not entirely sure what she's getting at but it reminds me of the Narcissus legend where the god falls in love with his reflection- I'm guessing she's saying Manes will encounter sorrow if he doesn't stop being such an egotist!

I like that you like the composition and the color palette :iconmegustaplz: If this ever becomes a comic, the colors will be shown in an exaggerated way xD Or limited palette, or too surreal... yeah.

About the other designs... soon I'll show Scorpius. Not my fave zodiac sign at all, but I think the design is not too bad ^^

And yeah, you get it right, that's what Justice is saying. Telling him to be careful and less narcissist, basically... :3

Of course Nuria! ^^ I will always try to make a relevant comment about what strikes me most about a picture! In this one, the lack of colour gives it atmosphere, and the positioning of the characters adds tension~ (Such a helpful little Loklok XD)

FFF yes! I like Scorpio (that's Sirius xD) I love seeing your character designs...

:iconilikeitplzz: Nailed it!

Oh Sirius is scorpio? really? xD

Well then he isn't gonna have much in common with Scorpio... mainly because it will be a SHE xD
