Thumbnails! The concept I picked is outlined in green.
This is the quick black and white paintover I did after I selected the thumbnail I wanted to push forward with.

I went back into this painting a year later to refine it! The left is the old version I had uploaded here! The right is my new updated painting!!
Tūtū Pele, the Goddess of Volcanoes, Fire, Passion, and Lightning
I did this piece as a tribute to Hawai'i, where my mother's side of the family is from!
