My entry for :iconmiisu: Japanese myth contest ! :D  -----> fav.me/d6qkzid

I decided to draw Benzaiten, one of the Seven Gods of Fortune. Benzaiten, or sometimes called Benten-sama, is the goddess of everything that flows: water, words, speech, eloquence, music and knowledge. She's also the goddess of art and beauty.

In my drawing she wears a kimono that flows out as a river and holding a biwa, a traditional Japanese lute. I decided to not draw her face, but instead show her from the back. The reason why I didn't draw her face, is because I didn't want to portray her with a specific face.

The textures I used you can find here : fastpuck.deviantart.com/art/ki… and fastpuck.deviantart.com/art/ki…
