An ameliorated version of my “Enki, Mesopotamian God of Water” drawing. After learning how to use Photoshop, I figured I would redo this drawing, but this time through digital painting, just to see how I improved in the past few months. It is inspired from an ancient Mesopotamian cylinder seal. From his shoulders erupts two streams of water, each representing the most important rivers of Mesopotamia, the Tigris and the Euphrates. In this water, you can see carps swimming. The carp was a fish strongly associated to Enki. He is also wearing a small cloak made of carp scales, since he is often dressed like this on ancient Mesopotamian representations. He is wearing the horned crown of divinity, a typical Mesopotamian god trait.
