H is for Hygeia

I got some great shots of a friends little girl during a photo shoot. This one in particular I wanted to turn into something mythological based. I was thinking snakes or octopus. So I came up with a little Hygeia. She was a goddess of health and healing....hense the term hygene. She is always pictured with a snake signifying healing and medicine. Anyway, it was fun.

Beautiful drawing with very *eye*-catching motifs!... get it... haha... yes, anyway, I do love how you've incorporated those snakes and eyes throughout the drawing.
