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.
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!
wow you did an amazing job with this piece. I really love how simple it is, and the coloring is always phenomenal! I really like the coloring of the skin, and the way the fabric flows seamlessly. The hand is remarkable!
