PTF: Savior Picture

(I am so out of practice with my tablet it's not even funny. So I'll be working on a couple of my own ideas before getting onto important things like art for others.)

"Inanna is the goddess of love - but not marriage. She is connected with extramarital sex and sensual affairs, prowling streets and taverns for sexual adventure. In the Babylonian epic of Gilgamesh, Gilgamesh points out Ishtar's (Akkadian version of Inanna) infamous ill-treatment of her lovers. Inanna also has a very complicated relationship with her lover Dumuzi in "Inanna's Descent to the Underworld". She also is one of the Sumerian war deities: "She stirs confusion and chaos against those who are disobedient to her, speeding carnage and inciting the devastating flood, clothed in terrifying radiance. It is her game to speed conflict and battle, untiring, strapping on her sandals." Battle itself is sometimes referred to as "the dance of Inanna."

[...] Inanna was also associated with rain and storms and with the planet Venus, the morning and evening star, as was the Greco-Roman goddess Aphrodite or Venus."

It's been announced over on facebook, and it's been secretly on my profile page for some time, but officially announcing it here: My next big project, Operation: Poison Tree Frog, will be a totally original Persona fanfiction! (It will also be my first major collaboration.) Original as in little knowledge of the Persona universe is necessary to read, all of the characters will be brand new and mine (guys don't even lie you like most of my characters), and I know more about Sumerian mythology than I rightfully should. There will also be a bunny in a sweater. I'll be happy to answer any questions to any interested parties, because I like answering questions.

Also, by the very nature of Persona, the project will be pretty symbolism-heavy. And very psychological. Inanna (this one) is the only Persona of the main party with a full design, but hey, I like her. I just wish her color scheme had been a little easier to figure out. We're going with a Sumerian theme for it (since the games have had "themes" for their mythology to follow) and hey, boobs! Y'all like boobs, right?

Anyway, submitted for your consideration, here we have the main character and her Persona. (Funny thing: This wasn't violent or bloody at all until I started working on it today. Self-therapy!) This won't affect any of my other writing, really, since I'll be still working on RMWJ and The Ram will be done before this; this project won't start in earnest until this summer. Until then, notes and drawings and designs. (I'll draw the other characters once we have set designs for them. But they're pretty fun, overall! PTF gets to include, according to our notes: "semi-doting happy papa", "classy bitch gambler", "parrot!", and "OMG EMPEROR FROM MULAN".)
