Dominance War V - 2D - Athena Wuxi - Goddess of Nature

Elunxia, Goddess of Nature rises again in a world that is deprieved of Nature. Forests turned into cities, Earth and water are polluted.

She holds a seed of Life Tree. Under her green radiant power, Life once again rise from the lifeless cities. Anything going against her will be destroyed.

Her worshippers will be able to communicate with all Fauna & Flora and gain healing abilities. Wielding the power of their Goddess, Elunxia's followers are able to draw great power from Nature herself and smite all who defied Nature.

Model Sheet:

Work in progress:

----------------
I just heard about Dominance War yesterday, i knew there isn't much time left, but i still wanted to have a try.

I chose to design a goddess of Nature. First i wanted to give her an oriental look, later on i added in some western fantasy elements.She has stag horns, bird's wings, plants and fish fins on her body, represents the lives of sky, land and water.

Here are some of my sketches, still very rough. Any comments and crtitiques are welcome, thank you.

Since she is goddess of Nature, I wish to put a symbol of "Tree of Life" on her back. Here are some tries using Alchemy.

Thumbs up

Hello
Great concept indeed. Also very nice coloring.
Trying to help, maybe the building down on the right comes out too much?
I like it a lot. Cheers.

Continue with the background. She is summoning roots and growing trees in the city. Under her radiant,nature is restoring in the lifeless man-made realm.
