Gaia, Greek Earth goddess and mother of all gods.

In Greek mythology, Gaia (also spelled Gaea), was the personification of the Earth and one of the Greek primordial deities. Gaia was the great mother of all: the primal Greek Mother Goddess; creator and giver of birth to the Earth and all the Universe; the heavenly gods, the Titans, and the Giants were born to her. The gods reigning over their classical pantheon were born from her union with Uranus (the sky), while the sea-gods were born from her union with Pontus (the sea).


Something less intricate this time and a gift for all who brought good wishes and gifts for my birthday:

This is awesome, Roger, I love the blending, and also the character choice. I'm a big fan of Greek Mythology, and I must say Gaia was a pretty cool goddess. :D :love:
Thank you for the dedication, it's really good to see my icon under a beautiful work. :heart:

And you're very welcome, and I agree, Gaia is definitely one of my favorite mythological gods, it's very easy to apply Her to our nowadays philosophies too. There are no humans without Earth... she still reigns over all of us. :)

Nothing too intricate,  huh? Bah! DANG BABY! This is....... *gasps for air* fricking.....holy crap!
I am astounded by everything from the details to the blending to the fact that you probably think this was just slapped together! :rofl:
I LOVE THIS SO MUCH! Thank you so much, Roger! What a great thank you! I can't wait until next year when I make you another less than par gift, and I get something else like this in return! :giggle: XXXOOO!

You're most welcome Jen. And well... I put probably a good 10 hours or so in it (plus another 2 the next day when I realized I didn't like what it looked like), but this is much much less than I spent on the last two. Looking for more simple ideas to take on, so that I can practice more the whole process of finding stocks, retouching/re-working and finishing adjustments, see where this gets me. :) Epic's awesome but only now and then, can't always spend 10 days on a piece. ^.^'

But I'm very glad you liked it, it's nothing less than you deserved. :) :hug:
