A bit of a different Morrigan Aensland artwork YouTube

Morrigan Aensland does have a slightly darker side to her character that isn’t seen all that often actually. Personally, I prefer the Morrigan that is self-assured or seductive over the Morrigan that is more vampiric or monstrous. Still, it is part of her character and I came across a YouTube video of one artist’s creation of this side of Morrigan and as well the completed work.


And if you cannot see the video on the Tale, please try this link.

And the completed work, which you can also find on this artist’s DeviantArt page here as well.

It is amazing how much art can be done in so little time and really the work is amazing in its detail, expression, and how Morrigan appears here. It is stylized, but that adds some depth and expression to Morrigan with the little red highlights adding a splash of colour to what otherwise would be, I think, a muted piece of art.

While Morrigan is dangerous looking in this art, there is the echo of her sexuality as well, and in that comes a feeling of her raw power that I think is interesting too. One of the more unique works of Morrigan that I have seen and certainly one of the strongest in expression for her.

    A lot of power in this Morrigan, but it also seems to be a ferocity in which she looses a bit of herself, and maybe is fighting to hang on. Perhaps something possible in any of us under the right circumstances.
