Janus

Description: In ancient Roman religion and mythology, Janus is the god of beginnings and transitions, thence also of gates, doors, doorways, endings and time. He is usually a two-faced god since he looks to the future and the past. The Romans dedicated the month of January to Janus.

I drew him as a woman, but the 2nd face is that of an older bearded man. Rather than future and past I chose to go with a male vs. female, water vs. fire theme. First CHOW I’ve participated in for quite a few years, the iPad is doing the job it was purchased for! About 80% of this was done on the iPad with Procreate, I finished in Photoshop. This was done for the Character of the Week challenge on conceptart.org.
