#3 — Deph, Queen of the Jungle

| November 3, 2010 | 3 Comments

Deph is the Queen of the Jungle and the creator of animal and plant life on Ssilir. She is the youngest of the gods and delights in exploring the wilderness. Her mother represents agriculture, but Deph presides over the untamed wilds. Ssilirians believe fruit and meat are her gifts to the people, and many celebrations in her honor involve feasts. Most of her temples are located deep in the jungles. She is also sometimes associated with fire because of the use of wood as a fuel source.

She is usually depicted as a green and brown Ssilirian woman (women have smaller beaks and lack crests or horns) whose coloring changes with her surroundings. She is always shown with a companion animal, usually one of the local species around where a given temple stands.

Still getting used to the pencils and markers. I wonder if it actually is any faster than doing it digitally. Unfortunately, I don’t have the time to produce perfectly sculpted works, what with school and day jobs and other things. So I am doing the best I can! Any tips anyone has for working with this medium would be greatly appreciated.

    I think you’re doing pretty good with the markers. I wish I had the guts to experiment on these.She’s cool. I like that She’s blending into the tree.

    Again, great colors and design. By the way, is that critter there supposed to have three/six legs?
