Goddess of Silkworm by Greenishio Goddess of Silkworm by Greenishio
Entry for a mythological contest held on Gaia. Yeah I know it has been almost a month since the last time I submitted something. I'm sorry~ I'm such a lazy gal. T-T

Goddess of silkworm from Chinese mythology. She's supposed to be wearing the skin of a white horse. There's a story that goes with her but I'm too lazy to find it.

Painted with watercolour. I kinda cheated with the colligraph but it was written by me nevertheless^^; Tweaked and adjusted with photoshop. Colligraph was written on another piece of paper then pasted on the painting (and no that's not what I mean when I said I "cheated.") Oh and I added a layer of pencil crayons.

In case anyone's wondering, the colligraph read "silkworm" and "god"( there's no single Chinese character for goddess.)

OMG, watercolors? Wow, I never seem to be able to get enough paint on the brush, much less the paper XD
Beautiful work, an elegant portrayal of celestial serenity at its best ^___^
