Yakshini by skdiesel Yakshini by skdiesel
Some of you may have caught the Livestream of this piece a week ago. I really worked on this one to get it into my portfolio before I graduated, and I just managed to squeeze it in there in time. I loosely referenced a bit of Hindu mythology and took my own spin on it. These are what are known as Yakshini, which I believe in America is the equivalent of a djinn or genie. If you’d like to read more, feel free to check out the Wikipedia article below.

Thanks for looking!

Wonderful image! I'm always a sucker for mirror symmetry, but this is quite dynamic even without that additional effect. Thanks for sharing.

Looks really cool. Is there a conceptual reason why its mirrored?
Reply

skdiesel Featured By Owner Apr 23, 2012  Professional Digital Artist
There isn't a conceptual reason per se, I just felt it made a stronger design as a mirrored illustration. Thanks for the comment!

Really beautiful !!!
The face expression is just perfect, a little bit sad and melancholic ... The jewellery and backgound are beautiful with all these details, and the association of purple + gold is beautiful !
