(okay, to be more accurate, it’s been here for a while, but i’ve been composing my thoughts about it for like a week now.)
of course, i’m talking about @nisat‘s wonderful symmetra fanbook, namaskaram! it’s a beautiful love letter to the character with so much gorgeous art and some fun backstory comics.
i’ve always related heavily to satya, because i come from the same city in india as her — hyderabad. among other things, we share a love for balance, physics, and even classical indian dance. i was so overjoyed to see a character like her in overwatch, and even more thrilled to see that others love her and are making such amazing fanart of her!
this book in particular does a FANTASTIC job of paying tribute to the traditional forms, facial expressions and hand gestures (mudras) of indian dance, as well as the significance behind them. it’s beautiful and everything i could have asked for! not to mention it sparked so much nostalgia for my old dancing days that i even did a bit of the traditional makeup just to take some fun selfies with the book. :P
all in all, i love this book so much, i’ve been endlessly flipping through it the past few days, plus it actually prompted me to make an original post, which my followers know i very rarely do, haha.
orders for the extra prints of namaskaram are still up and can be found right here — i highly encourage everyone to at least check it out, because this book is just too beautiful not to. :’D
