wow, nice composition and concept,
her hind leg could be a little more angled backwards to balance out her front leg
and yes even i think she is looking a little aged
it will be interesting to see how this will turn out
Great work, I love your posing, which stems from your exceptional use of line. Your drawings are beautiful to look at, and your understanding of movement and balance excellent.
This will be one to watch!
PS: Are you drawing on paper or digitally?

I like the pose you have so far....especially the tentacle grabbing her enemy...very cool idea.
It's looking great! Love the last paintover
Wow that's one wild pose, I love it....but is that going to be able to hold it's own weight as a 3d print?
Really nice pose, and I love the setting of the scene too, great work!! Looking forward to the next update
Very nice paint over... I think a bit of cloth transparency and a hint of Indian style would fit very well.
It's been a very quiet week for me, I've had other commitments to get along with so I've done very little work on Shakti. This update is a confirmation that I'm still "in", so to speak.
captainsensible, thanks very much - flattering words indeed
dirkrulz, thanks fot the input, I see what you mean regarding the leg. It would need adjusting if she was standing still, but she is actually being propelled backwards. I think I need to push the pose further to convey this motion more clearly
threetails, it's a pleasure to hear positive feedback from you, thanks
slashpot, thanks so much. To answer your question, all the sketches bar the last one and the paintover have been on paper
Hamilcar, thanks, very pleased you like it
jarlaxle00, that's a very good question - If I make it that far, I would certainly hope it can hold it's weight!
spimmy, thank you, but this update might be a tad underwhelming...
wethand, thank you for the encouragement!
SolidSnakexxx, Many thanks for the kind words. Cloth stransparency would be ideal, but whether that would be possible in a print is another matter. I'm hoping to push the "Indianness" further, keep posted for more
Anyway, here is the beginning of my work on the cloth and head-piece

I like the pose..and nice start with the clothes..
I´m looking forward to see more. The paintover looks promising
Looking fantastic! I really like it.
Looks great! really beautiful & elegant sculpt!! Keep up the great work Thanks for the great crit on my thread
sendhilv, Moni-Poroni, Harmonic, as always, many thanks for the encouragement
Hamilcar, thanks! and as for the crit, don't mention it. I love what you and the other entrants are doing here and I feel privileged to be a part of the creative process, even if just a small one
Anyway, been working on the base a little. I'm going to add human remains scattered around, the earth should look burnt as this is the site of a cremation...
Excuse the slightly wonky legs, I still need to address those with a bit more transposery
It would be cool to hear opinions on the base, It's always difficult for me to guage what I'm doing when it's something like random rocks - there's no reference involved, just trying to create pleasing forms and textures
