I may have some fun in photoshop with this. One thing I'll change is make the female smaller. Can't have the female larger than the male. I drew this with lighting that was about the equivalent of a night light. Tough on the eyes. But I dig the crowd. People out did themselves with Frazetta as inspiration.
I'm going to turn it into a digital painting but I needed to change it. Still have a lot of edits to go but you can see the dramatic difference in flopping the male. I've enlarged him, made her smaller. I'm going to heal the sanke and background a bit, do some anatomy ( his , now, left leg)
I added the changes as they've shaped up. Changed the female's center of gravity so it looks like she might be able to stay on her feet if the snake moves suddenly
I decided to sell the original on EBAY. Click headline to watch that develop.
