Child of the Moon by leonaheidern Child of the Moon by leonaheidern
Luna, quieres ser madre,
Y no encuentras querer que te haga mujer
Dime, Luna de plata,
Qué pretendes hacer con un niño de piel.
Hijo de la Luna.

De padre canela nació un niño
Blanco como el lomo de un armiño
Con los ojos grises en vez de aceituna,
Niño albino de Luna
----
Luna, you want to be a mother,
But you can't find a love to make you a woman
Tell me, Silver Moon,
What do you plan to do with a child made of skin.
Child of the Moon.

Of a cinnamon-skin father, a child was born,
White as the back of an ermine,
With grey eyes instead of olive,
Albino child of the Moon.
*****

*Sighs

Another picture ruined by scanner.

I think I must explain this one.

I posted the song because I love it (I'm sorry for the bad translation), and because it inspired me to draw this picture. In the translation, I used the word "Luna" instead of Moon because I wanted it like that, as a reference to Luna, the spirit of the Garou.

Now, let's get to the story:

I'm storytelling a pre-Apocalypse story, and the things were going in the good direction for introducing the Perfect One, a flawless metis.

The prophecies tell that he will be born of the love of a couple of metis, which would be a sterile love. It will be the savior of Gaia or the savior of the Wyrm, depending on who you ask.

Anyway, the concept is the birth of something beautiful and flawless from an abomination, a violation of Gaia's laws.

As anyone who knows my character might imagine, the adult one is Chiara, who is a Philodox, a keeper of the law. But she was also born in a Black Spiral hive, so she wasn't educated the same way most Garou are.

And she is in love with her own brother. She only slipped once. It was the day she passed the rite to become an Elder. She met her brother while she was celebrating it, and she just let herself go. She will never forgive what she's done. She's broken every law: she has commited incest, she has mated with another Garou and with someone belonging to the Wyrm... and everything while she was celebrating to be good enough to be a Philodox elder. Isn't it an irony?

Now she has to hide from her fellow Garou. Many want her and her son killed, and they don't even know the full history (she never told who was the father).

And the father of the cub is not in a better situation. When they became corrupt, the fur of the Black Spiral Dancers had turned black as ashes, like it had been burned... But the cub had the pure white skin of the White Howlers. That mustn't be something good.

Actually, I stopped storytelling for a time before the Perfect One was born, so I've made this picture in advance... But it inspired me too much, so I've drawn it of ideas that I have in mind, even if it has not happened yet.

I know it's difficult to think in Chiara as a mother, and not just because she's a metis, but I think it's interesting too. I like to make plots that implicate important characters in the game rather than bringing a new unknown character to scene. I think that plots are more effective then. And the weird relationship that Chiara holds with her brother was too interesting to leave it unexploited.

And, before anybody says something like: "Garou females don't have breasts in crinos" I know. But they do have when they are giving birth a metis cub. And this is the case. I know her breasts don't look OK, but I'm still learning to draw garou.

Please, comment. I need critique and advice to continue learning, because I'm new to this style.

Interesting note I believe there was a possible end times scenario in which the Wyrm is reborn purified as a perfect metis who units both the Garou and Fera to destroy it's former corrupt self and all of it's servants.

I always loved metis characters, as controverted as they are... And I loved having the opportunity to storytell the Perfect One story since this point of view.

Las unicas pegas: las mismas que en el otro dibujo, pero ya le iras cogiendo el truco a las caras de los lobos. No es facil pasar de dibujar humanos a Garou o animales... te aseguro que a mi me costo lo mio!
Una historia muy bonita, por cierto; tiene algunas cosas en comun con la historia del metis perfecto en mi partida. :)

Me costó redactarla en inglés, la verdad, y no estoy del todo satisfecha por como me ha quedado, pero la escribí deprisa y corriendo.

¿Cómo lo introdujiste tú en tu partida? Solo por curiosidad.

Y gracias por el fave. Sé que aun me falta mucha práctica, pero eso se suple practicando XD

Se me hizo raro dibujar a Chia en una actitud que no sea "soy una tía dura y voy a partirte la cara". Pero bueno, esta es otra de sus facetas. De hecho ella crió casi por completo a Arioch, el cachorro de Hilda... Y así salió, diciendo cosas como:
"¡No me gusta que me pongas el pelo así, mamá! ¡;Parezco un emo!" (e Hilda no tenía puñetera idea de qué es un emo)
"Ya se como se hacen los cachorros. Papá pone una semillita en mamá... y la empuja con la polla. Me lo dijo Chia."

Bueno, de qué hablo? Si mi hija me ve jugando al Guild Wars y cuando no hay malos a la vista se pone a cantar 'A por ellos, oe... a por ellos, oe' y si le estoy pegando a alguien me dice ';Pega, pega, Ayeisa, pega, pega'

Vamos, que va a salir más o menos igual :P

xDDDD Lo peor es que Chiara lo enseña mejor de lo que hace Hilda. De Hilda ha aprendido bastantes cosas poco apropiadas:

Chiara: ¿No te ha enseñado tu madre que un Philodox no debe mentir?
Arioch: Sí. Yo nunca miento. Está mal.
Chiara: ¿Entonces cómo llamas a lo que has hecho?
Arioch: Yo no sé. Mamá lo llama "dar a entender cosas que nunca he dicho".

xD Me encanta ese crío.

Y luego está Savra, la hija mayor de Isen, que es Theurge. Está obsesionada con todo lo que vuela: pájaros, aviones de papel, Bron... Y tiene cierta manía de tirarlo todo por la ventana a ver si vuela (a Bron aun no lo ha tirado).
Además, tiene manía en levantarle el parche a su abuela paterna y a Isen, quedarse mirando con curiosidad y luego meter el dedo dentro de la cuenca ocular vacía. Le hace gracia que les duela. Una vez se celebró una juntanza de garou de todo el mundo en el túmulo y acudió el rey Albrecht. De repente aparece la niña de Isen en medio de la reunión (no tenían niñera para ella y andaba por ahí a cargo de Arioch). Ve a alguien con parche y se le acerca toda sonriente. El rey Albrecht la coge.

Albrecht: Qué niña tan simpática. (A Isen) ¿Es hija tuya?
Isen: (conteniendo la risa) Sí, es hija mía.

Savra le levanta el parche.

Albrecht: Sí, tengo un parche como el de tu padre. ¿Te gusta?

Savra le mete el dedo en el ojo.

Albrecht: ¡Arghh! Vaya, ya veo que les enseñáis a fastidiar a los Colmillos Plateados desde pequeños, ¿eh?

La verdad es que sí. Quizás alguna vez la dibuje así.

No te preocupes, que Isen seguirá creando niños inteligentes, tontos... vamos, para todos los gustos. Va a repoblar él solo la nación Garou. Esto de ir a tener 7 hijos con solo 19 años...

You've managed the furr pretty good, it looks nice on both characters. I have a hard time judging this because I don't see these kind of drawings often but I can say you have shaded it pretty nicely and the use of subtle colors also work in my opinion.

You should go easier on the lineart on the little one I believe. The background doesnt't say much either.

Considering this is a traditional drawing, I'd say you've done a good job :)
