added comment inDesign a character from this Mop
Hey everyone! Meet Mr.Nagaraju (King of cobras). He is the head of the tribe that worship cobras, hence the turmeric powder on his face and the king cobra's hood tied to his head as a crown. Though he seems crabby, he is generally a pretty chill guy and loves Nagini dance and his community. As I come from South India, I try to keep the references as much as possible to the culture here. And I found it really fun creating a character out of the prompt using the references I am familiar with. #KeepingItReal. However I realised now that this looks pretty similar to the god Vishnu. Hisssss (sighs in cobra)
I would like to share that the idea of this character actually started from looking at the fence in the picture. It reminded me of scales of a reptile, thus it developed to this after few iterations.
Here is my final submission for the October challenge. As we do not celebrate Halloween in India, lot of research went into understanding what it is about. Hope I captured the essence. The little kid is a skull catcher disguised as a batkid ;).
