Raven Mocker for Inktober Day 8
Today’s topic from Sketch Dailies draws from Cherokee mythology, the Raven Mocker, a creature, according to my research, not unlike the personification of death. It preys on the elderly or sick and steals years from their lives for itself. For my interpretation, I chose to make it a woman in mid-shift, drawing life from a hospitalized woman. Somehow, Miyazaki’s Wizard Howl, of Howl’s Moving Castle, had an influence, as well as my concept for the Ravien race here at Forsaken Stars.
