#22 – Shiva (Nataraja)

| November 22, 2010 | 5 Comments

Shiva is a major Hindu deity. Possibly the most important. In the Mythoscape, Shiva takes on his Nataraja manifestation 99% of the time. Boasting an unprecedented 134 points of articulation, Shiva takes his role as Lord of the Dance very seriously. His favorite styles are Pop-n-lock, Salsa, and the merengue.

    Hahah, that’s very cool. Wasn’t Shiva a Female deity, though, Joe?

      Only in Final Fantasy land I think. They kind of substituted Kali in there visually I think. Shiva was a guy. And he’s dancing on a demon. (Oh what a feeling).

  2. Yah, only in Final Fantasy. Traditionally Shiva is male.

    Love the dancing. Interesting how your characters have varied, some close to the original and others vary a lot. This one looks a really close depiction of the original Shiva.

      Whoever requested him specifically added the “Nataraja” part. I didn’t know what else to do with the Dancing. Tried to do a “Vogue” thing with the hands. Almost did a Saturday Night Fever thing but the pose wasn’t working with four arms.

    Sweet. Dancings’ tough to capture sometimes. You did a fairly good job of doing it here though.
