Dark Mother by Coriander Shea

Dark Mother
by Coriander Shea

Prompt: Draw whatever character comes to mind!
prompted by: Patty O., during Sketch Fest #34 (March, 2013)

Had to draw Asteria Nyx again. I adore her energy. :)


Comment?

Maigan Lynn says: Since your last Asteria Nyx piece I can't get her name out of my head. It really is lovely - both her energy and the character drawing of her. All I keep thinking when I look at her is what a stunning nose and neck! lol! There's so much else to see but I'm caught on those two things! ~ Reply?

     Coriander Shea replied to this: Oh thank you! :) Yeah, I couldn't find anything in mythology that came close to Her except Asteria and Nyx, both in different ways...so I thought I'll combine them and if I find a goddess in folklore that is closer to Her energy, I'll just change it lol. Thank you for the compliment about the nose and neck, Maigan, as this was out of my head and I kept trying to get her facial angles to look more human. I kept picking at it until Thomas asked me, "Well is she human?".... Me: "Well, no...".....Thomas: " Well then it's fine that her facial angles are different then." :)

Harkalya Reveur says: Powerful!!! ~ Reply?

     Coriander Shea replied to this: Thank you Harkalya! She amazes me, and I hope that my awe of Her comes through the sketch. I will draw Her consort, Sol, eventually but I'm still too paranoid to tackle Him. He reminds me of Aslan.
