shango:god of thunder and lightning by artnerdx shango:god of thunder and lightning by artnerdx
As the god of thunder and lightning also the third king of ancient oyo empire, Shango one of the seven sons of Yemaja(godess of fertility) has some powerful energy with which he could use to manipulate lighting and fire.he is often depicted with a double axe , the symbol of a thunderbolt, or he is depicted as a fierce ram. Shango’s thunderous energy became a symbol of the resistance of the Yoruba people in Nigeria when many of them were taken from Africa as slaves.

An interestingly modern take on Shango. Great work on the colors and shading. I think the ground and foreground plants could be a little more developed, but the main actors work well.
