Dancing Fist

Character design created for the purpose of participation for CharacterDesignChallenge. The goal of the Challenge is to create a character design based on the Theme of the Month. Organisers of the Challenge set the Theme of May as "Indian Dancer".

I found my inspiration for the design in Tandava dance (a sacred dance of southern India) and beautiful saturated colours of India.

The Tandava dance is described by Wikipedia:

Tāṇḍavam (also known as Tāṇḍava nṛtya) is a divine dance performed by the Hindu god Shiva. Shiva's Tandava is described as a vigorous dance that is the source of the cycle of creation, preservation and dissolution.

I created six colour variations of the design. After that, I could choose the right palette that matches to character and Theme.
