During the 2nd stage of a job interview I was asked to draw a new character or object based on one of their existing games, to test my creativity.
This is the concept art for a Water/Rain Goddess character.
Water is a symbol associated with life, fertility and abundance. And consequently with the female gender and motherhood.
This led me to take inspiration on prehistoric representations of the Mother Goddess, particularly of the Venus of Willendorf.
As for why I went with an african character, besides wanting to add more character and body diversity, the Venus' head always reminded me of tight curly hair.
