This is my gothic fairy queen.  She is made with oil based paint markers and gel pens on mixed media vellum surface paper. 
This is another one of those feeling-like-crap-take-my-mind-off-of-feeling-bad drawings that turned into a good painting.  The hardest part was drawing the corset design just the way I wanted. 
I keep thinking she needs some kind of Celtic name but I can't come up with one I like or that I think is appropriate.  Plus my knowledge of Celtic names is very limited.

Avalbane means 'white orchard' and sounds pretty cool. and Brenna means 'raven maid', or dark haired. Celtic names are beautiful.
As is your painting! I love the colors!

Lovely. She has great eyes.
The only Celtic goddess I know is Epona, the goddess of horses and donkeys, and fertility.

Thank you both.  Avalbane does sound very cool.  Epona is good, too, but doesn't match the mood.  I really think the eyes are what make the painting.
