Naga is a Sanskrit word which basically refers to a "serpent" or "snake", especially the King cobra. The term Naga in Hinduism, Buddhism and Jainism denotes divine, semi-divine deities, or a semi-divine race of half-human half-serpent beings that resides in the heavenly Patala (netherworld) and can occasionally take human form. They are principally depicted in three forms: wholly humans with snakes on the heads and necks; common serpents or as half-human half-snake beings. A female naga is a "nagi", "nagin", or "nagini". Nagaraja is seen as the king of nāgas and nāginis. They are common and hold cultural significance in the mythological traditions of many South Asian and Southeast Asian cultures.


yes I copied the wiki article's first paragraph https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/N%C4%81ga


I decided to try my hands at dark skins deemed appropriate due to you know region they are from etc and needing practice...and now I don't know if I did well, eh It looks good. Also her scale colorings are supposed to look like a king cobra's I think due to the lighting you might not be able to see that.

Really digging the looks of this Naga, or Nagi if one wanted to be technical, but I think a brighter background with a darker Naga would make it pop.
