For some reason, I really, really love what you've done with his hands in this. ;0; (And it's one of the few I've seen of a Hindu god where they aren't holding their items. xD) I like the touch of the pink underside of them, too. :meow:

The patterning on his pants is lovely, as well. : )

Okay, the project is for my literature class, where we read the "Bhagavad-Gita," which is a Buddhist/Hindu religious text.
What happens in the story is that Krishna (the kid with the cow), who is an avatar of Vishnu (this four-armed fellow here) is telling a warrior named Arjuna about the ways to enlightenment and to be one with God.
Vishnu is essentially God, and an aspect of God, and Krishna is kind of like Jesus, only blue and a cow-herd instead of a shepherd. The calf/cow is a sacred animal in Hinduism, and Krishna's protected animal (along with peacocks and sometimes deer.)
The project is to create three illustrations based on the Bhagavad-Gita, and the illustrations of Vishnu and Krishna are the first two. The third one will be all text, just me making sanskrit passages of the Gita look pretty on paper. And it's due Monday.

Did that clear it up some?

Oh goodness, yes! I've never read the Bhagavad-Gita, so I wouldn't have known! =D He's extraordinarily beautiful! xDD
