While creating this art, I was going for a simple snake and dagger design, but ended up with a two headed lady snake. It’s hard for me to just do what is expected. I believe an artist must add to an idea or concept in order to make it their own. Almost anything artists create has more than likely been done before, but how we execute it and make it our own is what matters in the end.
I’m sure there are hundreds or maybe even thousands of two headed lady snake designs out there, and I’ve probably seen a couple in my time. But instead of sticking to the original concept “snake and dagger”, I decided to go with something that would be a little more interesting. In result, the Two Headed Serpent was born.
My point is, don’t just do what is expected of you. Add your own style or taste to anything you touch. There’s no right or wrong in art, just remember to make it your own.
