Steinman's Aphrodite by scribblecloud Steinman's Aphrodite by scribblecloud
It's a wip but shhhhhh, I like it too much to toss it in scraps.

One day while roleplaying Cohen and babbling about Steinman to some other rpers, It slipped into my mind that Aphrodite, considering Steinman's obsession with asymmetry, wouldn't be symmetrical at all. She'd be something similar to Picasso's work, with some cubism tossed in. So here was my stab at J.S. Steinman's delusion of the goddess.

(hope to have her colored and up to par by the end of the week~)

DONE!

Quite freaky. I could easily see Steinman worshiping this!

Holy balls, this is fantastic. I've tried a few times to draw Aphrodite, and gotten the asymmetric part down but failed completely to get the beauty across. XD So I am literally in awe of this. She's pretty horrific, but the art style makes her look gorgeous.

tl;dr you are amazing bro

Thanks~~ It took a few attempts to hash out the beauty concept. The first sketch was pretty hideous, and not in the good kind of way. I was taking it too organically, too much of what Picasso had done in his later years, but once I made things more angular, she shined through. Early cubism was much of an inspiration, such as the clarinet player piece (I also have an art deco advertising book and it served nicely as a basis to work from).
