Art Sneak Preview: Lakshmi and Yama

It's Friday - time for art, and we have two whole pantheons that haven't seen the light yet! Let's take a look at a few gods of India, in all their delightful artistic sketchy glory!

We love the motion and sensuality in these sketches of Lakshmi, who with her lotus flowers, coins and sunny smile looks like the very embodiment of prosperity and happiness. Which is what she is, so the artists have struck again.

And on the other end of the spectrum, we have the lord of Naraka, who as you can see they experimented with between his manly Hindu incarnation and his more monstrous and frightening Buddhist face.

He's a serious person and he will have a serious underworld discussion with anyone who needs it.

These guys are actually still under a lot of construction - the artists are working like madwomen and the many sketches they are sending us have more arms, eyes and symbolic iconography than a single blog post could contain. As usual, you can find Sam and Steph at their Deviantart homes if you want to show them a little love!
