This one will be a lot more elaborate one day, this is a pleasant middle phase. It's from a meditation/visualization I undertook, trying to duplicate Innana's descent to the Underworld. This was the fourth gate, ruled by my intuition. Pencil and Photoshop

The work on the gate itself is amazing. You have captured the feel of sheets of emerald - I dont think I could do that! I am really in awe of it.

She kinda reminds me of something of the Wizard of Oz, you know the Emerald City thing, but I love the way you did everything on this, she looks great and very unique. I wish to be able to draw like you someday. I like the color green to, it's not my fav color but i still like it, it is a BEAUTIFUL peice of art. 2

While I have the same name as the above commenter, I don't have the same interpretation. I don't think it looks at all Wizard-of-Ozish.. It's darker, and more meaningfull 1. I love the concept here, I can't wait to see her in final form.

Very interesting. I once tried a meditative technique like that and I've often thought of depicting what I saw in a painting. The blending of violet and green in the stones/crystals is quite impressive, though it does remind me of the Emerald City in The Wizard of Oz (please don't hit me!)
