As a big fan of the movie from which this character came from, it's always bothered me that there is not more art on this site dedicated to her. Thankfully, a picture this well-drawn more than makes up for it.

The picture itself, as I've just said, is drawn very well. I've often said that fan-art that can replicate the source material gets an automatic thumbs up from me. Here however, not only is the style different, it's detail and quality probably surpasses the actual image from the movie, and that's saying something.

As for what's being depicted, it's also quite fitting for the character. Aisling, despite her child-like personality, has always had a sense of mysteriousness about her. We never know that much about her beyond what we're shown in the film but we always got the sense that there was far more going on with her.

And this picture manages to capture that feeling well. The look on her face is very ambiguous. We have no idea what she's thinking. Is she happy? Sad? Angry? None of the above? There's no indication what's going through her head in this picture, it's all left to the watcher's imagination.

And you know what? That's often the best way to go. It gives the picture depth and a real weight.

For a picture that's so well-drawn and has such an impact it deserves nothing less than near-perfect scores all around.

Such a good movie. Was first brought to it because it looked similar to Samurai Jack, then watched it because of the Gaelic history. Nice art man.

Anyone... give me ONE good reason why I should watch it.

Oh yeah, and if I had to complain, I'd say there needs to be a LITTLE more differentiation between her hair and skin. Something about the way you colored it makes me have to lean in and see it from a weird angle to actually see her arm in front of her face. Otherwise it just looks like an indistinguishable white blob with green eyes.

Is there really that little contrast between her skin and hair color? Wild.

This is a beautiful piece and an intriguing pose.

How much money would I give to see a FiM film done with the same pacing. Or The Last Unicorn redone in this style.

That movie is so stunningly beautiful and well done. This is a great tribute to it!

If you ever get over your hatred of backgrounds, I think one could really give some great atmosphere for her.
