Simply sensual! In my faith, we regard Ishtar and Ereshkigal as one and the same goddess, but with two aspects one dark and the other light. From that perspective, I like the way you made Ishtar and Ereshkigal have a similar but different look to them. Your inclusion of the eight-pointed star shows a good understanding of proper goddess symbolism. I did my own drawings of these two goddesses, so I am quite fond of various depictions of them that are done well, and yours are most certainly magnificent. This one I must fave too. :D

I do agree, black and gold is a great color scheme. Did they use khopeshes in Babylon though?

That colour combination looks great in my opinion too. I like the composition and design (clothes, blade, crown). Awesome!

The curvature of the weapon looks great beside the curve of the moon.
Another magnificent pose choice that has great movement.
Her calf ribbon is a great addition, and the yellow really pops out against the night sky and ebony lion.
Stunning!

I just got back to civilization again and came back to look at this again.. I just love it. Perhaps the sword could be a bit more metallic, but it's really not an issue at all.
