Grace OMalley by GENZOMAN Grace OMalley by GENZOMAN
Gráinne Ní Mháille (c. 1530 – c. 1603), also known as Granuaile or Gráinne Mhaol, known in English as Grace O'Malley, is an important figure in Irish folklore, but was in fact a larger-than-life figure from 16th century Irish history. O'Malley is sometimes known as "The Sea Queen Of Connaught". Her name appears in contemporary documents as Gráinne Ui Mháille, Gráinne Umhaill (Grace of the Umhalls).

I thought Grace was Irish through and through (as in red hair), not black Irish as you drew her. Oh, well. And artist's perspective and all that stuff, I suppose.

She looks awesome.

I can't help but mention thst I'm related to her.
Unfortunately the surname dies with my grandmother.

I'm not completely sure though, I'm sure they are still many Irish families related to her too.

I'm related to her too, though not by blood. My father's side of the family are decendants of the O'Flaherty's, her first husband's family.

Me gustna mucho tus ilustraciones, los colores y el hecho de que no se ven estáticos tus personajes.

Aunque sé que ésto es para Miyos y Leyendas, estoy viendo el patrón del "cuerpo ideal" en las mujeres que dibujas. Quizá sea sólo por preferencia o algo subconcsiente. Sí has dibujado a mujeres más "llenitas" (no gordas) y quizá no las he visto aún?

Sólo pregunto (no es queja) y se me hace curioso.

Muy buen trabajo con ésta :D

y'know, she should be bald. Her nickname was Grainne Mhaol, which is irish for bald grainne.

still though, i love your work, and it's nice to see someone interested in irish history
