The Horned She by pixelfish The Horned She by pixelfish
I'm not precisely sure who The Horned She is in my personal mythology, but she has a fondness for octopi. (The octopus is a symbol of the ancient creative forces, deeper mysteries, and in some traditions, female sexuality.)

You'll notice her belly is made of glass, and she has two cave fish--one lighter, one darker--swimming around in her belly.

(Sketched in pencil, scanned and painted in Photoshop. Not sure how long this took, I lost track of the time.)

A progression of this piece can be found here: [link]

Thanks! And yay for the Science Blogs! I like to sketch in the local science museums (California Academy of Science in SF and aquarium and Pac Sci Center in Seattle).

Nice. I'm searching for a science community to be apart of. I like reading peer reviewed material, I like reading new fields of studies straight from the horses mouth. I'm interested in learning more about synthetic biology and genetic engineering. Very exciting.
