I dedicate this picture to my best friend who's birthday is on the 2nd July.
Over the last year she's given a hell of a lot of support and I'm glad I got to know her. Here's to many more years! ^_^

I guess the reason why I chose the moon maiden was because the moon is actually my friend's governing "planet" (the moon is to Cancer as Mars is to Aries). We're both into Astrology and that kind of thing.


This drawing was inspired by the famous traditional Japanese tale of the Moon Maiden. You can read the tale and have a look at the picture I was working from here: [link] (http://childhoodreading.com/Warwick_Goble/Moon_Maiden.html)


And finally Credit goes to Stephanie Shimerdla who made it possible for me to add the stars and clouds. I think it gave the picture that extra something.

I recommend you check out what she's got on offer, you might see something you've been looking for: [link] (http://www.brushes.obsidiandawn.com/)

That's the description I used when I submitted the picture to deviantart, so I've pasted here (lazy I know but its got all the info there :p)
Just thought I'd share the picture here for anyone that's interested :)
