Oils & Acrylic on cradled wood panel
Nubia of Themyscira, Twin sister of Diana,
crafted from clays of ebony, strength, and wonder.
This was inspired by Nubia from Wonder Woman and imagining what she would be like in a 2017 context. It’s also a bit of me getting back into oils (on top of acrylic) which has been super exciting. And a big shoutout to my community on patreon! Their support allows me to create paintings like this on a regular basis. If you like you can check it out at www.patreon.com/odera
