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..



illus. for - rocket kapre;usok

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.

Whoa.
Wouldn't want to get caressed by THAT gal. :fear:
She has CLAWS man! CLAWS!
Ouch...
Wonder how the hell she gets that make-up applied. :P
You'd think she'd poke out her eyes or something.

Pretty nice work, though I prefer more detailed work. :clap:

This is quite epic :) it looks really good people are hard to draw. There is a lot of detail in some places too :)
I like that it looks like it is on a canvas, even the painting style reflects that.
