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).
