A great round! I learned tons which is most important,
my idea is that she bathes in molten lava where she's most at home,
i tried to push beauty because she's a goddess.
Happy to share this one with you! x3
Well, here it goes
Lookin' good everybody!
Rushed didn't wanna miss the deadline like last time, need to study more sigh...
Here's my final. My thought behind it was to see her as child, as a volcano still under the ocean before becoming one of the Hawaiian islands.
She wears a sperm whale tooth necklace (lei niho palaoa) which meant power among Hawaiian people.

really???? I must be blind...or my monitor is broken lol
can we get some professionals in here?
It's always so inspiring looking at the chow finals. You guys make me want to art better.
you don't have to go around calling people trolls, that in itself makes you a troll
and a very pathetic one
I'm just confused as to what we're supposed to be voting on, artistic skill or just the most creative/bizarre design?
