SMITE Kali re do by Brolo SMITE Kali re do by Brolo
Hi Guys, in this time I did a Kali`s re do illustration for Smite, I hope you like it.

Don`t forget to test this amazing game here ! www.hirezstudios.com/smitegame…  Thank you very much for your support guys!

To speak of Kali is to speak of the beginning of time itself.

Across the majestic lands of Hindustan rose an army of demons that conquered the countryside and slaughtered the people. Yet, when the Gods themselves were defeated, Devi, the supreme Goddess, emerged to throw back this host and protect the faithful.

Three forms she took during these ancient times. The first, Durga, the Mother of Creation, was as radiant as she was fearsome. Astride her tiger, she scattered the demon horde until she encountered the horrendous Raktabija. For each wound she gave the demon, his cursed blood created a copy, quickly resulting in an unstoppable army of Raktabija clones. Rage boiled at the corners of Durga’s mind, in the quest to slaughter and destroy evil. From the forehead of Durga sprung her wrathful form, with skin darkened and eyes glowing a menacing red.

Thus was Kali, the Black One, Goddess of Time and Destruction, the second form of Devi born.

Rarely has Kali been seen since, kept in the shadows of Devi’s mind, but when the tides of battle shift and evil looms large, there is no solution but unrestrained destruction of evil, and Kali once again, walks the Earth.

Just one question.

Why aren't Kali's eyes red in the painting?

At first I was going to criticize that she resembled the depictions of Durga rather than Kali, but when I checked some images online, I stand corrected.

Was the redo because of some controversy or like Wukong, to pay greater homage to her background?

Both because the Hindus were outraged at Kali's previous design and Hi-Rez wanted to pay greater homage to the legend of Kali.
