About the Piece
Creative Field: Illustration, Life/Reference Drawing
Tools: Clip Studio Paint
This is a Life Drawing/ Caricature of my partner, my best friend, my hyper-creative - cosmically enchanting - goddess of the underworld, @FaithReigns.
Check our her art @ www.faithreigns.com. She's pretty dope.
Who is Lilith?
Lilith is one of the first Goddesses to surface in ancient Jewish Mythology:
"Lilith’s themes are freedom, courage, playfulness, passion, pleasure and sexuality. Her symbol is an apple. In Hebrew legends, Lilith is a dangerously beautiful Goddess who refused to subordinate Herself to Adam, feeling She was created as an equal. This makes Lilith perhaps the first true liberationist, and She resolves to make modern life similarly equal for all people. She also boldly instructs us to stand up for what we believe in, unbridled and courageous, no matter the cost. According to legend, Lilith was turned away from paradise for Her ‘crime’, and She has been depicted in art as a demon." (Journeying to the Goddess)
I call this piece Lilith because her energy is very much alive and well within my partner. She's wild, free creative, magical, brave, dark -- she takes absolutely NO shit, which compliments me nicely because I very much the opposite. She helps keep my scales (LIBRA GANG) balanced, and I'll forever appreciate her for that.
