This is a cover piece commissioned by Kthonia Press for "Monsoon and other Short Stories". She is a Hindu goddess of lightning.

It was a joy to create this. Pattern on the shawl was created by me.

Then you'll have to take it up with the publisher. This work was contracted out.

I just viewed your profile. I like the blue horse image on your wall. I too have that print :D
Are you Tarot images created by you?

:D It's a beautiful character - the horse. I forget who's character it is though atm.

If you look at the description on the poems, you'll see where I got the card images. :) Thanks for checking out my profile though.

Spectacular, majestic and ferocious. I love that you chose features somewhere between the North and South Indian artistic traditions, as well as your use of color; the combination of silver, gold and blue practically incarnates the shock and crash of an electrical storm. I recently wrote about a dress of this color blue, but it took your eyes to give it life in my head. The fine pattern detail of silk and henna is the perfect touch.

Wow, just wow.

The chosen colors are so brilliantly working together.
The background alone is fascinating, but looking to the foreground... *whistles approving*

Bravo Lithriel. Bravo. Her eyes are saying "Wanna get some coffee.....then possibly some DEATH!?"

On a serious note, this is frighteningly graceful. Well done.

Beautiful. I love the way the her hair is so inky black and makes a compositional mass, and how just the highlights around the edges reveal the form. Gorgeous blues as well.
