Sulis by Malla13 Sulis by Malla13
Sulis is a water goddess who was worshiped at the hotsprings of Bath, England by Celtic peoples. [link]

When the Romans came they adapted her into their own religious observances and her title became Sulis Minerva. She was both a kind, loving diety and one who could grant curses on her followers' enemies. She's been my favorite diety for a long, long time now. I've had this in my WIP folder for years now, pulling it out now and then to tweak and just stare at it. I think I've captured the way she feels to me though, so I'm finally uploading it.

Lots of refs used. I think this is the first time I've ever painted water reflections, but I'm pretty pleased with how they turned out. Created with Painter IX.

It's great to see someone create new imagery of Sulis that isn't just a copy of the same statue head at bath. :-)
