Elemental Goddess Series 1-5 by Nashya Elemental Goddess Series 1-5 by Nashya
I don't usually post commissions but the commissioner of these pieces insisted because he was so pleased and felt my work needed to be seen publicly. *It's his shameless yet sweet attempt at getting me more work too XD*.

This lovely lady is part of a series of 5 Goddess's. She is Water. *You probably already knew that huh?*. I was told by the commissioner to keep them fairly simple yet elegant and not make them overly cliche. Not to weigh them down with jewelry, tattoos, ... or clothing. LMAO! They were supposed to look like they could be normal women but there'd be that "Goddess Glow" about them. The backgrounds were to remain simple and not overpower the character.

Close up: [link]

This particular Goddess is my favorite *so far* and I actually incorporated some designs from my other comic *title not yet announced* for the clothing and hair style. She came out JUST like how I saw her in my head. She has the prettiest face too. Biggest challenge: Not making her look like ice or a bootleg version of Shiva of Final Fantasy fame and not killing you with the blue/green/teal/aqua color scheme. I shall post the rest of the Goddess Series as I finish them.

I'd like to put in my own opinion, but I'll warn you ahead of time that I'm no artist, so this is just my untrained opinion.

I've seen the whole series, and I have to say this on eis my fave, and in my opinion, the best, according to what you said you'd like to achieve. Out of all of them, this one is one of the simplest in terms of clothing, background, etc., but through her poise and expression and figure and the general colour scheme, she is definitely the one I think comes across as otherworldy. Compared to her, I think I could see the others as actual people in certain circumstances, but this one immediately comes across as some kind of creature or deity.

Hettar7 Featured By Owner Oct 15, 2007
I like her knees, and that whole area really. yeah... Her feet are so neat with how the toes are not totally shaped and detailed more like just outlined with subtle bits thrown in. I really like the positioning of her left hand. (Hand whore here) Nice movement on her hair and how some of it is whisping over her face. lovely.

I'm glad I decided to look through your older works...I got to see this...

Looks like I'm going to be adding another piece of yours to my favorites lol!

GREAT Job on this...I love it. I love her hair, the dress is a great touch, and the border looks really good. I really like the border. If only her hands were not placed so

Really though...I love this picture...It's beautiful.

Keep it up.
