Okay...im a pretty religious dude, and im muslim btw...and i am amazed by the sheer complexity of islamic art that adorns most masjids (mosques) and other religious areas. Amazing thing is they didnt have pencils back then to plan all this stuff...just chisel, stone, wood, steel...all the traditional stuff...So heres a pitiful try from yours truly...
Hope u like it...More to come
Firstly, I'd just like to say how surprised I am with people's reactions to this. Not on the internet, but with people at school. Myself, I don't think it's a great picture, I think it's rather sloppy, but, holy cow, everytime I'm freaking working on it at school someone pops out of nowhere and says something like "OMFG THAT'S SO PRETTY1!!11" It's SCARY! I'm gonna have NIGHTMARES of excited faces! My friend Cat practically glued her face to the page when I showed her the almost-finished copy (she really likes cats... can you tell by her name? XD)
Anyway, I had to make the background brown. It was calling out to me "colour me brown... colour me brown..." I thought it looked like crap at first but now I sorta like the unevenness to it. But I wish I made it look more like a shadow than an outline. Bah, oh well.
Why does she have a nose ring? Go read the description for the inked version.
And now, some Egyptian Mythology for you. [Just skip to the end if you don't want to read.]
Bast is one of the more famous of the Egyptian Gods. She is said to be one of the daughters of Ra, and is described as a desert cat or woman with the head of a cat. A later God[dess], likely after the domestication of cats. She was Goddess of the Sun until contact with the Greeks, then she was known as Goddess of the Moon, and associated with the Greek god Artemis.
Bast is also called Bastet, because the T is supposed to be clear, and another name is Ailuros. There is [was?] a temple for her in Bubastis, a cult centre, and place of great splendor and beauty. Cats are sacred to her, and to harm one comes with great punishment. She's also the perfume protector, since perfume was a very important thing for the ancient Egyptians. End
Learn something? Damn right you did. I'm an amazing teacher. >D

Despite my distaste for energy drinks and caffine in general, something posessed me to agree to Hannah's request for a pic of her huggin the Monster Energy Drink can. Must be because we're such good childhood friends, or something. She's having a coloring contest for it, but since I hate coloring as much as I hate caffine, I will not participate.
This will go on a black tee-shirt for Hannah. Anyone who wants to color, feel free. You might win the contest.
Whew, my first dragon in ages! I haven't drawn a dragon like this forever it seems, with the scales, detail, hair.. all that. I was just sitting stairing into space one day when this image came to me. First one ever of such an angle too.
