Here are Krishna and Radha.
I made this for my parents-in-law as a christmas gift, as they are from indian culture.

If you don't know who Krishna and Radha are and you are interested in knowing, feel free to google their name and you'll find plenty about them.

A bit later I might post them separately, meaning, one pic with Krishna only and one for Radha only. Maybe I'll tell you more about them then (at least the little I know.. lol)

Made entirely in photoshop CS2. I can't really say how long it took me, but judging by the number of days I spent on it, at least a couple of hours every day, I'd say I'm not far from 50 hours spent on it.. lol

I hope you like it.
I think I'll make it available for print, not today though, but probably when I post new stuff..

[edit] ~EmAnUeLLa kindly gave me some links to the actual paintings I used as first reference, particularly for primary design and clothes.
You can find Krishna here -> [link]
and Radha here -> [link]
I will also remove it from the print program as she rightly pointed out some copyright issues about the design of the characters :p [/edit]

I love this and when I looked up Krishna I was surprised that both he and jesus preached the same thing

Thanks :D
And yes there are some similitude, but the same can be said for pretty much all religions :)

Awesome piece of art... beautifully painted... Loved the way you've handled the characters... But the I feel background could be reworked....Its a little distracting and doesnt blend with the color scheme.

Thanks! And yeah, looking at it several years after having painted it, I do agree with your comment on the background part. I would definitely make it differently if I had to repaint the same image today.

That is really, really a magnificent piece.

The coloring, the anatomy, the emotion. It's all spot on.

Absolutely brilliant! :)
