This is a character portrait of Princess Ruu, from a sci-fi/fantasy screenplay I wrote titled "Tellurian Sky." For some odd reason, people on the internet started circulating my painting as some kind of urban myth involving some death curse. I have no idea how it started but I suspect it originated from somewhere in China (because the first people to contact me about seeing my painting used that way were people in China), and then made its way to other Asian countries, then eventually to the western countries. Now it's on youtube and a bunch of other places. Strange world we live in (with a lot of very bored people apparently...).
