Phew, it's been a long while since I had my practice at painting! I do cartoon stuff these days, but back in my old account
I used to paint a real lot lol.
Machine Goddess Illaysha is a design I came up on the spot for the Challenge theme: WINGS
(you can find out more about it over here
). A powerful and evil goddess of a fantasy world, Illaysha rules over her realm with an iron fist. There was once when some people living there started to rebel against her, so after finding the source of rebellion she performs here her life draining attack, effectively ending it all with not even a scratch on her armour. This became a cautionary tale for the surviving denizens, and until a spunky hero and his friends appear... Illaysha will continue to rule strong.
In an earlier draft there were more things to see in this piece, but I've decided that it's best to crop up Illaysha for the focus. So yeah.
