    I'd say it's a safe bet that goddesses are okay, judging from the lack of description, it's probably pretty open.


    =====

    Okay, for the sake of keeping this post a little smaller, I'll hold off on the process shots until the end, but the ones I'd posted already will be in the Members Exclusive section, in my sketchbook (linked in my signature), and there are even more process shots at The D/L Blog (which is also linked in my signature).

    G'night!! Enjoy the CHOWder!

    =====

    Well, I'm going to have to call it quits on this one... there some things I would've liked to work out further, but I'm still happy with it. So this is the final! I saved a toooon of iterations, so I'll post a step-by-step deal either tomorrow or next week, depending on what my time looks like.

    It's been a while since I painted like this digitally, so the rendering and whatnot was a blast. It was also an excersize in how much I could do without reference... the silouhettes of the birds were referenced, and her solar-plexus area was reffed as well:

    The Goddess of Art:
    Maya (means Illusion), the Goddess of illusion and desire. She is reborn with every inspiration, living entire lives in the moment it takes us to have an epiphany. Her jewels are the symbols and essence of thought and wisdom, illusion and desire, action and execution; they hold the power of the muse. Her birds are that of passion and hope, pain and torment. Born of inspiration, she has many faces and many forms, she is the artist's hope, and the artist's anguish; she is the reason we can't not draw, paint or sculpt. She is the reason the inspiration flows in, and the inspiration must flow out...

    Oh my god, Phuzion, she's gorgeous...

    Although now victory becomes an afterthought...

    Nonetheless, I'm gonna treat this as practice, here's my WIP, hopefully something different. I have no idea how to finish this painting, how do u guys decide what's finished and what's not? some advice if possible please?

    Note: I'm asking silly questions because I've only started painting 2 weeks ago, but everyone says my work seems unfinished, and I dun understand how to 'finish' them...

    Vision & Muse
    The twin deities of Vision and Muse work together as the light and dark sides of inspiration. When artists take joy and create easily, Muse is in control. However, when an artist is tormented by their creative drive, painting all night instead of much needed sleep, Vision is at fault.

    Okay, This is what I've come up with, I swear...around all of you I feel like a child. Nevertheless it just wouldn't be proper form to throw in the towel, so here goes...

    Chow #55 - VOTING - God Of Art!

    This is the godess of art, summoning her muses to assist her in inspiring artists of all ages ( Including the five year old who drew the background ^.~) .
    I guess my thinking on this was to go for something fresh and stylistically sketchy ( not an actual sketch as I spent a bit more time on this...) Like something that you'd draw if you just got a fresh pack of colored pencils. I tried and I know it may not be on par with the rest of your entries but I'm still happy with it.

    Ok... thought I'd finally jump in... Long time watcher (read: chicken) first time entering any of the OW activities. WIP below... Still a lot of bugs to be worked out but hopefully I can get it wrapped up by Sunday.

    Chow #55 - VOTING - God Of Art!

    Here's the most final he's gonna get. Fun activity... I'll definitely give it a shot again. Oh, and a quickie brief:

    Q'tzal
    One of the few old gods to survive the global cultrual purges of the 24th century, Q'tzal returned to favor after the world economy crashed. Their oppressors powerless, the new Pantheon returned to the minds of men. Q'tzal is stripped of all but the memory of the fantastical feathered dragon he once was. Fitful and shiftless, he wanders the realms of the subconscious and inspiration ebs and flows at his passing. He carries with him one of the four dying embers of the Universal Truth (the others rest in the hands of Ishtar (Love), Apolyon (Knowledge) and Charon (Death)). Of the four, Q'tzal's shard is the greatest, for the God of Art unwittingly carries with him the secrets of immortality.

    Art is very subjective, sometimes for a piece work of art, people can respond totally different, for example abstract painting, one can highly praise it and considered it's beautiful, and other people can just simply said the painting is ugly.

    art is evolving, with the digital technology artists discovering a new medium, and thus come an are where work of art divided into a 'traditional' works and 'digital' works, by the method of producing it

    based on above reasoning i created my god of art concept.....
