Collaboration with RoseBride
, a friend and a very talented artist I met here on DA!!!
"And now my charms are all o'erthrown
And what strength I have's mine own
Which is most faint; now t'is true
I must here be confined by you
But release me from my bands
With the help of your good hands
Gentle breath of yours my sails
Must fill, or else my project fails,
Which was to please. Now I want
Spirits to enforce, art to enchant
And my ending is despair,
Unless I be relieved by prayer
Which pierces so that it assaults
Mercy itself and frees all faults
As you from your crimes would pardon'd be
Let your indulgence set me free."
"Prospero's speech" by Loreena McKennitt from "The Mask and Mirror" album.
ABOUT THE DRAWING SCENE:
Shaina desires to be a woman, only a woman for one time in her life. But she is a Saint, and she can't forget it!!...She chose to become a Saint, and she is proud of it, but this thing is even a limit, 'cause it forces her to great sacrifices. And this is harder to accept most of all when she understands she loves Seiya.
This is why her reflection in the mirror is the Saint with the mask. This is why she is crying. To be an Athena's Saint is both a privilege, a honour but even a prison from which she can't excape.
As they say into the Marvel's Univers:
From a great power come great responsibilities!(or something like that!^^)
SHAINA FROM SAINT SEIYA BELONGS TO KURUMADA.
