After a somewhat long and arduous process, I've finally coined a name for the "Indian" woman depicted in my "Goddess of Sand" painting
: Chadhiyana. The name is not related to the Indian village, Chadiyana, however, the conlang (invented language--one of my own) from which "Chadhiyana" was created is meant to be reminiscent of the Dravidian languages of India.
As it stands, I'm still developing her story for a series of comics and graphic novels (amongst other projects). Obviously, it's going to be something Indian-esque, though with a strong fantasy element (related to a fantasy world I've been developing for years). The only trouble is, I've never created a story around a painting before, so bear with me. As her story develops further, I will have more information for you all.
Other than that, I made a few small modifications to her outfit. And even though this painting is something like a 2.0 of "Goddess of Sand," I'm very happy with how it turned out. I hope you all enjoy it too.
