Goddess Series 5-5 by Nashya Goddess Series 5-5 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 Light 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]

Last but not least, the Goddess of holy heavenly light. I knew exactly what I wanted to do with her. I thought of a 'Swan' or 'Dove' as Light. I tried NOT to model her after an Angel though and not use feathers to personify the fact that she was pure light. Hard, hard, and more hard. There were really only a few colors I could use. It was either that washed out gray white or cream and white. I went with cream. She's regal, elegant, yet somehow cold. She seems kinda proud and emotionless. And she has one flaw. The ultimate light... blinded by darkness. XD MUHahahahaha! But anyway, YAY! My second series completed. I learned a lot during the time I worked on these pictures (one being it's hard as Hell to keep doing exciting and unique profile pics) and I hope I can apply them to my other series' pieces if I decide to do anymore. Um... what else... Fire and Light will be up for sale as prints in a few days.


This Goddess is my favorite. She beats Water hands down. Booyaka! Done deal. XD

She is all that you said and more. Beautiful.
DragonsLover1 Featured By Owner Sep 30, 2010
She has this kind of disdainful look, as if she isn't satisfied with her life. . .which kinda fits the description you have there. ;P

I love how her dark skin offsets the light. :D It's a lovely contrast. :heart:

Very pretty
Desquode-the-Raven Featured By Owner Aug 25, 2008
I love how she has dark skin.It adds the contrast this needs to not be overly bright. Another thing I love is how she has an almost overly serious look ALSO contrasting being a Light Goddess.

This image is so worthy... of.. existing! =P

gorgeous glow on this one!! I love how dark and light have opposite skins!! It just flatters the clothing so much more!

As much as i LOVE the water one as well, the mystical feel and her gorgeous gown is so much stronger.

Aw. No wind? xD

I love her. <3 Light is by far my favorite element ( too many stereotypes obsessing over darkness in my opinion ) and you captured her wonderfully. Her dark skill contrasts with the white quite well.
evanjensen Featured By Owner Jun 13, 2005  Professional Traditional Artist
The glowing feet rock. This one looks the farthest from that "everyday woman" look the rest had. Also like those frilly dress hems, though the cold look is hard to get around with white.
F-2-8 Featured By Owner Jun 13, 2005
wow. simply stunning.
Fallen-Angel15 Featured By Owner Jun 12, 2005
Beautifully done! Her dress is really beautiful and she is extremely elegant!
FairLily Featured By Owner Jun 11, 2005
she's so pretty, i love the dress, and as always the hair :D the only part i do not like is that she looks like she's wearing socks and i feel like that completely takes away from the "goddess" feel ^^;
otherwise, great work! :D

DeathRetsu Featured By Owner Jun 5, 2005
I love this one. She's so elegant and beautiful. Her faces is sooooooo lovely. I really like how you gave her a darker skin tone, kinda bronze-ish color. It works well with the white. :D
BonnieLass Featured By Owner Jun 5, 2005
Oh my goddesses, that is GORGEOUS. ::coos.::
ZIM402 Featured By Owner Jun 5, 2005

divi Featured By Owner Jun 5, 2005  Hobbyist General Artist
wow, this goes up with one of my favorites of your Goddess series *_*
She has such a nice glow and the simpleness of her outfit is wonderful
Kolene Featured By Owner Jun 5, 2005
I have no idea what's going on with the legs...O_o
heartfullofdust Featured By Owner Sep 21, 2006
I agree... she looks like she has really short legs for a goddess. Is she supposed to look like she's walking as a ballerina? Is her left leg behind or in front of her right leg? 'cause if it's in front she's due for a big fall :)
That's what really bothers me of an otherwise wonderful piece 'cause besides that the concept and the execution, the light, the colours and the whole picture is really good...

Too bad you didn't do Air too!
hanchannah Featured By Owner Jun 5, 2005  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
that would've been funny if you had done air... then you wouldn't exactly have to worry about clothes... (im sure someone has said that already..O.o)
ladyarianrod Featured By Owner Jun 5, 2005
Very cool and swan-like. The pose is very unique and well done too.
Audio4Ever Featured By Owner Jun 5, 2005   Writer
cool! the feet are a little weird though....maybe it's just me...ah well, I still really like it :D
shark85 Featured By Owner Jun 5, 2005
