I'm not precisely sure who The Horned She is in my personal mythology, but she has a fondness for octopi. (The octopus is a symbol of the ancient creative forces, deeper mysteries, and in some traditions, female sexuality.) You'll notice her belly is made of glass, and she has two cave fish--one lighter, one darker--swimming around in her belly. (Sketched in pencil, scanned and painted in Photoshop. Not sure how long this took, I lost track of the time.)

Yes, this is among the creepiest things I’ve seen on elfwood, in the best way.

Woah... she looks scary yet beautiful at the same time. Good work!

Yikes! Just flat out creepy! Would I like to meet her on a dark night? Not likely. Awesome!

That is an incredible picture. I love the colors, the details on the columns behind her, the backstory you provided (technically not part of the picture but who cares), and EVERYTHING ELSE ABOUT IT!!!

If you lost the horns it would be much better, in my opinion.
