Atapa, the heat and radiance of sunshine.

Quite random and unexpected. But I do like how she turned out. ^_^

So cool, I love the mix between lineart and cell shading ! It reminds me a bit of the Art Nouveau style.

Oh, *wow*, this is stunning! I would totally put this on my wall! I -- *tries to come up with decent feedback*

It's so beautiful! *tries harder*

I love... uh.... the folds in the fabric, and her expression of smug-but-not-obnoxious power, and the clouds, and the *light* -- it's fabulous! I note you have it filed under manga and anime -- is it from something I could find somewhere?

Oh my gosh, you're going to spoil me rotten. :D (I say it like it's a bad thing... lol)

Thank you so much for all the awesome words of praise! My ego is curled up on the couch and purring its proverbial head off. I had to work all weekend, and your comments kinda rekindled the fire throughout, kept me going. :D

Hm, I'm not sure why I filed this under manga... :shrug: Nope, this is just me playing. "Atapa" literally means sunshine in Sanskrit. I think I wanted something akin to Amaterasu without going the japan route. ^_^

*ehehehehe* You're welcome! I looooove sending fb! (And don't worry about responding to everything -- the most important thing for me is making sure the artist knows how cool they are.)

Ahh! Thanks for the explanation! It's a gorgeous piece of work.

that is high praise indeed! Adam is one of my all-time favorite artists. I have long ways to go before I can do what he does, but it's nice that it kinda compares. ^_^

When I first saw her, I was actually reminded of the scene from Roger Zelazny's sci-fi novel Lord of Light in which Ratri excercises her powers as goddess of the night. I imagined her wearing just such an expression. :)

I love her expression, her satisfied half-smirk. It's perfect for a goddess.
Reply
:iconolgaulanova:
OlgaUlanova Featured By Owner Feb 9, 2008
So glad you think it's appropriate! I was afraid the expression would be lost in a small format. ^_^

Thank you very much for the kind words.
