My apologies to the little India of Toronto. On my way to work in the mornings (on the odd times that I walk to work) I usually pass through little India in the East end of this magnificent city I call home.
Yesterday I took a different route even though I was actively working on Athandra! I actually used the little India shops and people in the community as a reference for the character Athandra, who is a sort of Priestess of Ganesh. She leads the biggest presence of India in the Sanctum in A Lady's Prerogative and plays a pivotal role in A Lady's Prerogative II: Wounded Aerth. So as a thank you to the people of little India in Toronto, here are some early previews of Athandra and her headdress (which I studied from actual renditions of Ganesh).
Thank you and most of all I hope to honor people the culture of India living here and abroad,
Brian Joseph Johns
Afterwards Lady Naemi Soon and Jeong Soon here I come!
PS: Eugene F. has nothing to do with A Lady`s Prerogative, The Butterfly Dragon or this blog.
