Mother Earth by Rikkoshaye Mother Earth by Rikkoshaye
This is another watercolor painting I did not too long ago that features certain elements from the Mother Earth mythologies. Besides being a loving and motherly figure, in Greek mythology M-Eizzle just so happened to get it on with Uranus and pop out some titans. So, there's Uranus hanging out in the background while Mother Earth fondles, well, Earth.

Oh, and that's the moon in the foreground. It's there to make the space more interesting, or, well, something like that. ;) Otherwise, I had a lot of fun with this one and I really liked putting in those curled up, vine-y hair ends. I mean, if anyone is going to have hair that turns into plants halfway down, it'd be Mother Earth, right? :)

Rikkoshaye:

I am a fellow artist (in the genre of writing). I came across your "Mother Earth" art piece, and find that it fits perfectly with a writing I would like to display on my page on Facebook. Of course I will give you full credit and where to find this art piece, as well as your other artwork; along with the compilation piece (of writing and your art piece.)

If you find this objectionable in any way; please write to me here at deviant art, and I will remove it.

Many thanks,

I think you should add details to this in another medium to amp up the contrast! It's great to look at as it is, but imagine how it could pop with a few accent lines from a pencil or pen...

Oh definitely! This is quite old now, and as a result it could use some touch-up. If I ever did go back into it I'd either lay down more watercolor to darken the piece and amp up the contrast, or else switch to acrylic and redo the entire painting. I think what it needs the most is sharpening around the edges; it's kind of annoying how parts fade into each other in certain places. Anyway, thanks for the feedback! :)

Oddly enough, I actually saw this in one of the art classrooms before it was finished, and I thought it was really awesome, even without all the color. I didn't know you were the artist! I think you did a fabulous job! ::+favlove::

Thanks Chance! I'm glad you like the Earth; it's not my favorite part of the picture but if you think it looks alright, then I must have done okay on it. ^.^

Well, that is just gorgeous. Kind of resembles Stephanie Hammon, too. Heh. Seriously, That looks like it's copied from a picture. And that's a very small Canada. It's so pretty, though. It's just, wow!

Haha, well, for the most part it was copied from a picture, but that's because I need practice with humans and copying from real images is the best way to learn! :D I'm glad that you like it, and thank you for favoriting it! :D
