The Weeping Woman by stroggtank The Weeping Woman by stroggtank
Created for a Collective Exhibition in Mexico, as homage for a mexican Rock Band. It depicts my vision of one of many versions of the mexican legend of "The Weeping Woman" (La Llorona) and it is inspired by the song of the same name by the band Caifanes. The legend tells the story of a young woman who has lost her children, even after her death, during nights her spirit keeps weeping in sadness looking for them. Again, this is one of many versions :)

Thanks for watching!

Created in Mudbox & Maya, rendered with mental ray and post in Photoshop.

This is still my absolute favorite piece of art i have seen. It is beyond beautiful. It inspires me and defeats me as an artist.
I can only hope to create something this amazing. 
So So So Gorgeous, i cant even begin to explain.

Looks more Native American than Mexican Indian (but I suppose they looked similar), but it is a very beautiful piece.

wow! the atmosphere of the picture is just incredible! by the way, I've seen some episode of the tv show Grimm, which was devoted to the legend of La Llorona. Though, the woman in that show was dressed up in a wedding dress and was quite scaring, but you did a great work drawing it all cute and fancy! ))

I saw this when it was published in a 3D magazine :) I can't remember what it was called, but I know it was the second Volume. Was one of my favourites from the book :D that flow of movement.
