Pillar of heaven by scarypet Pillar of heaven by scarypet

Nüwa (Traditional Chinese: 女媧; Simplified Chinese: 女娲; Pinyin: nǚwā, also Nü Gua or Nügua) seen in various myths & depictions, she is seen as the Creator; the repairer (re. the broken pillar holding up the heavens). She is said to have molded the original chinese peoples from earth, depicted as a swordswoman, sister goddess of FuXi; The Snake Goddess; divider of heaven & earth, and lots more.



I really did want to draw her serpent-like bottom half, but i had to put focus on her face..

the composition is utterly awesome! :worship:

the woman in your artwork reminds me of Zhang Ziyi's roles in Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon and Memoirs of a Geisha.
