Hecate: was Romanised into a crone deity; however her true identity is a triple goddess. She stands at the cross roads of past, present and future with her three headed hound ‘Cerberus’. She is associated with entrances, the Moon, knowledge of herbs and poisonous plants and is one of the key goddesses of Wicca. Hecate was Persephone’s companion in the underworld, and she can act as your advisor if you call upon her. She will help you with life’s decisions.

This page shows the progression from the initial illustration to the digital imagery and colouration of the final character; using a graphics tablet I produced a similar effect to that of a painting using oils/gauche. I developed the image using patterns and textures which I refer to as swatches used during the development of this art work. You can see roughly how the pieces of the picture were developed.
