I dont know if requesting things on here is taboo or crass, like im treating it like craigslist or something. But this isn't a request for a trivial thing to me, so I dont think its crass. Anyway I was wondering if anyone on here is good at drawing and art on Photoshop, GIMP, etc and could draw for me a picture of the earth. But the earth as a coiled ball of a serpent and over the earth looking down on it, a gigantic head of a five headed serpent. The serpent and earth would be made up of black scales as that of a black cobra and the head itsell would all be adjacent and joined to each other, so it would be like the hood of a Cobra.

It's a bit hard to visualize. Ironically, you would need a picture of what you want in order to express it. :rolleyes:
Even if I had my Illustrator in this machine, it would take me forever to come up with something. Unfortunately, it won't run on an Intel Mac. I still haven't figured out how the hell to do much of anything in Inkscape, but I'll start practicing.
There are lots better artists than me around here, though, so you probably won't have too much trouble finding help.
Good luck with it.

Wow that would be spectacularly hard to do.

Let me see if I'm understanding:

There is only one snake (not two); its body forms the Earth, its head towers over it. Its head splits into 5 at the the hood.


What "level" of artwork (realism) are you thinking of? Line art? Graphic art? Painting? Are you looking for tattoo-grade art or wall-hanging-grade? Why don't you point us to something online?

I would try if I still had a scanner. I might be able to pull it off with a mouse though. :-/

Is this supposed to be some sort of Tiamat type thing?

I am thinking tatoo-grade. Something that can get the outline pretty well done. The coloring doesnt matter, but it would be nice is the shading was decent. And when I said its body would make up the earth, I ddint mean you had to draw the oceans or land on it. Just a large coiled ball of a Gigantic snake in space. I can draw in the rest

There is an example of the ball part, except I would like it to be more perfectly shaped like the earth and the coils to be more numerous, as if the snake was thinner. I am gonna start trying to draw this on GIMP, even though I suck at drawing. But I guess there is a first time for everything.

I can get all of it but the three headed bit. I can draw this by hand but the head confuses me. Do you want three hoods or just one?

There is an example of the hood right above that guy's head.

The first post indicated 5.
That last link is confusing. The face says 'girl', the chest says 'guy', and the arms say 'some kind of icky bug'.

It is a preadolescent man child /god/avatar. The Indian version of Jesus in his teenage years.

Ah... I knew that it was Indian, but didn't remember ever seeing it before. Still looks like a pretty girl in the facial realm, though. (Not a criticism; just an observation. It's like when all of the Jesus pictures show him as blond and blue-eyed, while everyone knows that he was Ethiopian... :rolleyes:)

I wonder if its cause hes like the motherly god. Of all the three most important Gods, hes the "Protector and Preserver".
