Acrylics, molding paste and coloured pencils on illustration board

After a somewhat long and arduous process, I've finally coined a name for the "Indian" woman depicted in my "Goddess of Sand" painting: Chadhiyana. The name is not related to the Indian village, Chadiyana, however, the conlang (invented language--one of my own) from which "Chadhiyana" was created is meant to be reminiscent of the Dravidian languages of India.

As it stands, I'm still developing her story for a series of comics and graphic novels (amongst other projects). Obviously, it's going to be something Indian-esque, though with a strong fantasy element (related to a fantasy world I've been developing for years). The only trouble is, I've never created a story around a painting before, so bear with me. As her story develops further, I will have more information for you all.

Other than that, I made a few small modifications to her outfit. And even though this painting is something like a 2.0 of "Goddess of Sand," I'm very happy with how it turned out. I hope you all enjoy it too.

Thank you.

If you're interested in more of Chadhiyana, I finished the art on her second short comic story two weeks ago. That and the first story should be available mid-October in GWP Presents: Volume 1. So be sure to check out my website or my deviantART page for where you can order it when the book is out.

Thank you. I tried something a little different with the molding paste to help it "show up" better, which gave the brush strokes that very "physical" feeling to them. I'm glad you enjoy it.
