out of the mist by SG09 out of the mist by SG09
"The morning was cold and uninviting when I saw four young men coming from the fields. As if they wander with the fading mist, they appeared in front of me. Four clothed in finest fabriks. The first where a pair of brothers. The older leading a small boy with yellow hair. Behind them the other two, not less than kings in their garments.
I greeted them humbly and ask for their way and names. Of good manners, they told me that they come from the Sidhe and called themselfs by the ancient names of Banba, Alba, Mona and Britan (Albion). "

This is a little something referring to the old names and cultures of the UK and Ireland.
Takes place somewhere in the early 40 BC,  before Britain became part of the Roman Empire. The struggel with Romans and Celts is a lasting threat to little Britain, who is but a child here. Scotland presenting the strong pictish influence holds him close. (funny fact, the celtic tribes of the Scots originally came from Ireland) The clothes are loosly based on folkdresses and pagan weardrobe.

Amazing! England is so loved but his brothers are rarely shown like this. The Celtic culture is truly unknown so their pasts are as well. It's great to see you giving it tribute. I also love the painted affect, and the lighting of the rising sun. You did amazing!

This is really beautiful! I love the watercolour feeling the background has, it gives the picture a mystical feeling to it. England looks absolutely adorable, I really like his clothing and his excited expression. I have an idea who the other characters are, although I'm a bit less certain about Mona. (though by deduction I have at least a good suspicion of who he is) But nonetheless, I find the picture to be really wonderful and I love the overall atmosphere it has! :D
