Lakshmi by Whitestar1802 Lakshmi by Whitestar1802
Is it sad it took me six days to paint this? :< I probably would have finished it sooner if I hadn't gotten sidetracked with other projects, but at least it didn't end up left to gather dust in my hardrive.

So, finally, some more original art, this time featuring Lakshmi, the Hindu Goddess of Prosperity, Wealth, Fortune, and the embodiment of Beauty. I'm not entirely happy with how her face turned out, but everything else I'm pleased with. She was described as being a wonderful dancer, so I drew her with more of a dynamic flow than my usual portraits to make it look like she's dancing. I know Lalshmi had four arms, but I only gave her two here because. :)

This was also a great excuse to listen to my colection of Om Shanti Om music (I should really watch the movie someday, the songs are great), especially this song: [link] I actually think Deepika Padukone would be the perfect Lakshmi, I mean just look at her! :love:

Enjoy. ^^

well,what do you expect from me but a little review?
the colors,though being a slight stray from your usual,are dulled in the background for the otherwise vibrant colors,a beautiful and appealing contrast.I love the way you brought out each and every streak of gold,truly illuminating the figure and bringing it out from the background even more,almot giving it that certain "jump-off-the-page" feel.Overall,still just as beautiful a piece as you've always done!

^^by the way White,I'd like to see more of your anime-ish style since you don't seem to do that much.that seems to be the way it is,you can either naturally do realistic humans,or naturally do anime.I gusee you'd be more realistic then,huh?

Yeah, I personally prefer Realism, as Anime is a much simpler style and seems overdone nowadays.

Very lavish, I think her face looks fine. Her fingers seem a bit fat though, but it's not distracting at all.
