I gotta tell ya, Ranbassi, I FINALLY joined deviantART just so I could post here and say that this is absolutely spectacular (I don't think this Work needs an iPod either but that's just my humble opinion). ;-)

I always associate Durga with the astrological symbol Virgo whose motto would be "Always Prepared"...
I know that round ended implement in one of her left hands is probably some kind of club, but to my Western eyes it has the profile of a soup ladle!!

Prepared for anything, indeed!

Ha, I can see how you can see that, especially the way she is holding it.. though its a club ^^

So are you interested in western mysticism? Astrology, tarot, occult? I'd like to learn more. I am from UK though I have no idea how to meet people with similiar interests.

Interested? Yeah, as a means to an end.
To what end?
To explore and change our minds and by extension, the minds of the gods.
Yup, we pagans feel if the gods are not gonna change, why should we pay attention?
Sure, telling the old stories again and again is fun, but what about telling new stories?
Would Ma Durga like Nina Palen?
AxeCop?
M.I.A?
Lady Gaga?
It's our job to let'em know about these things....

But I digress...

As for meeting people, I recommend looking up your nearest esoteric bookstore, go there and ask questions.

isn't it to brutal for Durga ma?
yes, she was a goddess of the warriors or something like that, but she wasn't so brutal like Kali ma!

Durga is usually not represented in black (like Kali is), though Durga is considered a aspect of Kali.

Brutal in this context should not be seen as something negative. Every textual reference I have explored does represent Durga as using what can be considered extremely brutal methods to kill demons. The creative feminine energy "shakti", for which Durga and scripture may be a metaphor for is extremely powerful, and is represented by Sikhs in the form of the Kirpan (curved blade). The Khanda (double edged straight blade) represents the masculine energy. Though it should be noted that Sikhs are ordered to carry a Kirpan not a Khanda. In poetry from Patshah, Guru Gobind Singh Ji, Durga and the feminine energy it represented does feature heavily. Over the centuries, it has inspired many to defend life.

The history of the Sikhs is really interesting.

Thanks.

I always thought vector art is something that is made in a vector software, though I just googled "vector art" and I think your right. Does, vector art have to be made in a vector package? I think a fair bit of my gallery is vector art, and I didn't even know, lol.

Yep a vector art is a form of art which is usually done in a software like Illustrator, Xara, Corel draw etc. Unlike photoshop's rasterised images vector art can be stretched to any size or form and it'll never loose its quality (you don't get that pixelated mess). Thats all I know about them so I hope that helps.

So what software did you use to make these awesome designs.

I've used Illustrator and Coreldraw in the past, though for this I used Photoshop.

It won't be a vector then. Although, your style makes me think you should do more work on Illustrator and/or coreldraw. You'll get cleaner lines and you can edit nodes easily on these softwares.
