Dragon Love Goddess Figurine by Hope Bryant

Dragon Love Goddess Figurine
by Hope Bryant

Prompt: Goddess of Love
prompted by: angiemroczka, during Sketch Fest #11 (February, 2011)

This is a finished version of a sketch!

Medium: Watercolor, colored pencils (pencil crayons), ink on Strathmore ATC-cut vellum bristol. Red sandstone was choosen for the main body of the figure, as it has some widely-held religious love symbolism. It is also seen as a form of "Earth's Blood", of life's blood in stone. This is inspired by three things, the prompt of course, neolithic godess-figurines, and dragons! ACEO's, mugs, small prints available at DevArt. Original ATC, not yet for sale (I have to make sure it flattens out more).


Kerrie Rusk says: Nice! ~ Reply?

Hope Bryant says: Thank you. I was very happy with how this came out, especially because I am very leery of "finishing things" due to my lack of confidence in my color-skills. Sadly I need new inking pens. :( My poor Micron kept getting gummed up with the color pencil in the final over-inks. ~ Reply?
