This is a Snow Goddess. (not a winter goddess )
Her name is Mauja, which is the Labradoran inuit word for "soft deep snow"
When she cries, her tears become snow.
I don't have much of a story behind her, but this is for the which is holding a drawing and photography contest. The drawing contest asks for a god or goddess based off of a particular big cat. My choice, obviously, was the snow leopard. (cuz it's so darn hot around here) the photography contest called for photos of big cats in the snow. I thought this was a good "bridge" image between the two. Go on by and enter! it's fun! yeah!
by the way, musical inspiration/mood setter were the soundtrack pieces from the awesome Shakespeare masterpiece -turned-to-movie, The Merchant of Venice. [link](here's one now!)
Possibly the most complex thing I've painted in the last year. <3 Tried to captured the colors of the dawn, I really love the mountains in the background. I've been recently trying to paint convincing background with real lighting and am happy about the progress! Again, I have some weird problems scanning watercolors, even the smooth paper has the structure visible when I scan it. >.<
My friend dearest =Kingdomkey showed me this art program Firealpaca. So its a painful and torturous temporary replacement for SAI until I switch the OS. Hopefully soon. Here is my shark Lavender. I want to draw all 12 of my sharks. And hopefully I'll be able to get all the sharks I need for my rp story by the end of the year. Notice any change in my style? (Not a good representation to answer that though?)
She is famous for loving pups and kicking sharks~! <3
