"Ra, the sun god, created Sekhmet from a fiery eye gained from his mother, Hathor, to destroy mortals who conspired against him. Sekhmet's blood-lust was not quelled at the end of battle and led to her destroying almost all of humanity."
Sekhmet is depicted as a lioness, the fiercest hunter known to the Egyptians. It was said that her breath created the desert. Quite a badass!
It's meant to be a background image for a laptop. This is the half-sized, heavily watermarked version.
The background is composed of images from a free online vector graphics site. Unfortunately, I searched so many sites looking for the right images, I've forgotten exactly where the ones used here came from.
Please refrain from using this image for anything. It is not for you. It is a gift for someone special. Thanks.
This is a design for a Bast costume I plan on making eventually (which is why she's so pale--I am, and I don't plan on getting a tan for this costume ... or ever, for that matter ).
It's also my first attempt at "inking" with Photoshop, using the pen tool. The pose is boring, and the original drawing was a bit half-assed, but since it's just for getting an idea on paper that it serves its purpose.
