Title: Chinese Mythos
Name: Nead
Country: Usa
Software: Photoshop

It is another illustration from my series of the Chinese mythos--NUWA.
She was a goddess, created the human by using the clay, and taught them how to raise up seed.
Some day, two sons of the deity fight for heirdom, the loser staved the sky...the doomsday was coming...
For repairing the sky, Nuwa cut off the legs from a huge tortoise to shore up the sky (thence, all tortoise had short legs), and smelted the color stone to fill up the hole of the sky...

Alright, I knew the myth, but ur drawing makes me feel that she was having a sunbath ...
Well, worth trying though...since Chinese had never expressed the myth in this way:bounce:

Beautiful lighting and great composition. I like it, my only crit would be - if you wanted the girl to look stable on the turttle you should have spread her legs a bit, now it looks like she might fall off any second, I think it even looks as if she is floting a tiny bit above the turttle.

Not bad.
