Hello and welcome to my art blog. It's me, Snuff, you may know me from my terrible personal blog. This blog, however, is art only. So, I'd give you my art tag but you know, kind of fruitless. All my dorky fanart will be posted exclusively on my personal blog. Anyway, feel free to direct any questions or whatever at me, I'm always excited to talk.

The Stolen Bairn and the Sidh - Part 2 - The Hidden Path

The Stolen Bairn and the Sidh is a Scottish folk tale about a young, single mother who’s baby is stolen by faerie folk called the Sidh. Using her wits and determination, she sets out to get her child back.
"All the gold of the Sidh cannot buy the cloak," said the lass. "But it has its price…" "Tell me then!" cried the Sidh woman, dancing with impatience. "Whate’er its price you shall have it!" "Take me with you into the Sidhean and you shall have the cloak," the lass said. "Give me the cloak!" said the fairy, Stretching her hand out eagerly. "I’ll take you in."

The last pattern from my senior project, (unless you count that I’m redoing one of the other patterns) The Stolen Bairn and the Sidh!
Bracken, Cowslips and Harebell. Plus will o’ wisps.
Cowslips, also known as prim roses, represent a link between the human and faerie world. Harebell is a sacred plant to faeries, and it’s very bad luck to step on it. Bracken are just ferns. But whoa, did you know that bracken meant ferns? Crazy, right? I always thought it was some sort of thorny bush.

The Stolen Bairn and the Sidh - Part 3 - The Sidh King
The Stolen Bairn and the Sidh is a Scottish folk tale about a young, single mother who’s baby is stolen by faerie folk called the Sidh. Using her wits and determination, she sets out to get her child back.
"The notes rose from the golden strings and filled all the Sidhean with music so wonderful that all the people of the Sidh stood spellbound in their tracks to listen. So rapt were they that when the lass walked out of the Sidhean with her bairn in her arms, they never saw her go. So, she left them there with the king on his throne playing his harp, and all of the people of the Sidh standing still to listen —-maybe for the next hundred years for all anyone knows."

The Stolen Bairn and the Sidh - Part 1 - The Lass
The Stolen Bairn and the Sidh is a Scottish folk tale about a young, single mother who’s baby is stolen by faerie folk called the Sidh. Using her wits and determination, she sets out to get her child back.
"When she had gathered all the down she needed, she sat herself down and wove a cloak of it so soft and white that one would have thought it a cloud she had caught from the sky. When the cloak was finished, she cut off her long golden hair. She put a strand of it aside and with the rest she wove a border of golden flowers and fruits and leaves all around the edge of the cloak. "
Much more to come.

When I was a kid I was crazy into sharks and large fish, used to read loads of books on them from the library. This kid obviously isn’t me, but yeah, some other shark nerd I guess. Anyway, I never really got over it.

This is what I did today! Thistle, gorse and thyme. Ink plus digital color.
This is a little bitty piece of a big project I’m working on called The Stolen Bairn and the Sidh. It’s a scottish folktale that I’m basing my senior project on.
Loads more to come. :)
