Hey Guys, wishing you all a HAPPY CHINESE/ KOREAN/ MALAYSIAN/ etc. etc. (to those who are celebrating today)
Here is a drawing of Chang E, a well known Chinese goddess who drank the immortal potion.
It all started when the world had ten suns. It became so unbearable that Chang E's husband (they were immortal beings in heaven) shot down nine. The gods were furious that the pair were punished to live on earth. Because they lost their imortality, they searched aimlessly to regain it. And so a goddess gave them an immortal pill.
On their way to home, Chang E's husband saved a man and because of his heroric deeds he became the king of the victim's village. Growing greedy and selfish, Chang E drank the pill to prevent the village's forever sufferance under her husband and floated to the moon. There, a jade rabbit keeps her company.
Chang E is Celebrated during the Autumn moon festival... But because it's Chinese New Year and it's year of the rabbit... I decided to draw her and the jade rabbit..
Teehee, once more... HAPPY CHINESE NEW YEAR!
