My entry (or first entry) into the new random generator contest at Seventh Sanctum! This time it's a Deity contest, and I the randomly-generated description I chose was:

"This selfish goddess of slaughter takes the form of a maiden. She is very tall and has an athletic build. She has no hair, but instead her head is covered in spines. Her eyes are bloody pits. Her skin is covered in faces, each frozen in a mute scream. She is usually portrayed nude. She carries a net. She has six eyes. She has catlike eyes. She is surrounded by a lethal black aura. She sometimes takes the form of a lizard."

Quite a challenge! And an interesting one! How can her eyes be bloody pits, catlike, and six at the same time? WELL! I did three pages of preliminary sketches, over two of which where I was just looking for a pose. I decided early on to make the "spines" on her head into the backbone kind of spine, instead of the needle/spike kind (which is what I assume was meant originally)... simply because it looks cool and weird! I opted not to picture her as a lizard, but rather to incorporate some lizardly elements, like the tongue and the claws (especially on the toes!) to give the impression that she could go lizardy at any moment.

I also made a small collage of different steps I went through to get to this final picture, you can view that here.

This is so cool ! I really like the way you did this. The horns (or what they are :'D) are so cute... I love her! You did a great job, really. Only thing that bothers, is the background, it's quite... nothing, really :'D quite a mess, even though there is flames (?). But this is really pretty picture, goodluck with the contest (I'm participating too > www < I have no chances... But oh well).

This was one of the first pieces of your art I've ever seen, I think. I may have seen this before I really got into reading Flaky Pastry.

Anyway, I really like this one. The joy of evil in her eyes is priceless.

And the spines! Who else could have thought of that?

I don't think I've ever seen a more beautiful rendition of such a nightmarish and utterly horrible creature. Nicely done. ^_^

Now that the contest is over, I feel I can make more detailed comments ;)

You took a lot of elements and fused them into one appearance, then took it pretty far over-the-top. I liked the "spines" and the addition of the lizard traits in order to work with the theme.

Looking at the proto-sketches, I think the net-as-dress idea was a good one and I'd loved to have seen that finished.

Wow, Erythnul's gotta find her hot. :)

Honestlly, when I first read the description, I was imagining the 6 cat eyes being seperate from her body (since the one in her head were bloody pits) orbiting her or something
