This is a character concept based on the goddess Kali for the graphic novel I'm working on. It's a refinement of the photoshop style studies I've been working on so far this year. I'm interested in ways to marry representational form with graphic pattern motifs. This means I geek out on a lot on Klimt paintings. The subject matter, a goddess, lends itself well to this since there's so much in Buddhist and Hindu art to draw on for inspiration.
Sunburns aside, this was a seriously beautiful day at Dolores Park SF. Some would even say "Dolorious!" You know who you are. Thank god I have paintagenic friends or I wouldn't have gotten my work done that weekend. Oh, and Nina, remember, you are not a giant, you are in the foreground. :)
