Sakura, Goddess of Cherry Trees and Cherry Blossoms. I wanted to do this Sakura for the month of April for the Calendar i am creating. I had the vision of a cherry blossom tree woman, and here she is! I'd also been wanting to draw a goddess with multiple arms, too, so that killed 2 birds with one stone! After i smoothed out the graininess (which some people thought fit her skin texture) i now feel a lot better about her. She doesn't look like an amateur trying to pass off the skin as being grainy bark, so to speak, hehe. I can say this is one of my favorite pieces. Now, i don't know if those viney things (i think they may be called lichen?) would be hanging on a cherry tree's branches, but her arms looked bare and needed something so i added them. I like how they look. And i know her toe roots are WAY too thin to support her beautifully large figure, but i picture her to be slowly in the act of walking. Slithering her toes and heels into, and out of, the shapes of roots as she lifts and lowers her wooden feet, both pulling and pushing her into and out of the earth. If she were standing still, her green soles would be on the ground, and some of her toes dug into the earth for support, hehe. But then what kinda fun foot pose is that to draw? Right? Right! Heh, and as i look at her face, she somewhat looks like a cross from Sati (the little girl from The Matrix Revolutions - the shape of the face), and Mystique (from the X-Men movies - i think it's the eyes). I hope you enjoy!
