Monra's exile by Dashiana Monra's exile by Dashiana
An interesting side note, this picture was originally done in red. Check the red version here.

"Kuinka oma veli,vastaan käydä näin voi veljeään? Tällaistakö tahdot? 
Nyt sydämeni paatuu, vain suuren hinnan siitä maksaa saan."

"You who I called brother, how could you have come to hate me so? Is this what you wanted?
Then let my heart be hardened, never mind how high the cost may grow. This will still be so."

This picture is actually based on on a sketch I made during Summer 2012. It's Monra and his brother Kora, who is exiling him from their lands, Alexandria, after coming to the conclusion that Monra was to blame for their little sister Imaia's death. The picture, as you might have guessed, is based on the song "Plagues" from Prince of Egypt. :) I've always thought the Finnish version of the song is extremely powerful so I wanted to honor it with a picture.

I also wanted to concept the power these brothers possess in my most recent designs. As you might have seen earlier, I posted a new, stripped design of Monra where he had a glowing orb of energy attached to his chest. I was thinking the energy is something they can use to grab hold of things, as Kora is demonstrating in this picture. It also grows weaker or stronger and changes color, depending on their mood. Monra's default is color is teal, white Kora's is deep forest green.

That sounds like an interesting story. I take it these are original characters of yours?

The lighting and expressions are very done. I like the magic behind the orb, it looks like it would be very useful :)

I haven't seen Prince of Egypt in forever, but now that you mention it, I kind of want to watch it again (I remember a lot of the music was really good in it).

Aww, thank you! I'm so happy you like this piece! :heart: Prince of Egypt has some awesome music in it indeed! :> I've always felt it's very inspiring since most of my pieces are related to songs of music in one way or another.

Oh, and yes! These are my original characters; Monra (the submissive one on the ground) and Kora. :> They're brothers.
