Why would there be any?
I see an elephant man with no especially offensive characteristic in the costume or symbols.

Is there some king of taboo in representing Ganesha?

just that hes one of the most worshiped dieties in hinduism, so his mere presence would be taken into account.

There are already a lot of hindu gods in Smite. If the Indians (at least those who have the Internet) had a problem with their gods being in a MOBA game, they probably would have manifested themselves already.

I mean, I'm no expert in Hinduism, but Vishnu is in there already. Isn't that God also very important?

Did that controversy truly originate in India, rather than in puritan America? Because American are specialists to censor sexualized designs (as long as a thing is not rated R). I don't know about India, but when you see some of their statues, you'd assume they are fine with it.
But anyways, this Ganesha here is far from being over-sexualized : he wears pants, and his torso is far from being an idealized body! 

Only an Indian could truly settle our discussion, but I don't see anything to be offended about here. Unless you're the kind of guy against any representation of his God or Gods outside the official religion (but those would be yelling about EVERY God of their hindu religion in SMITE)

That's incorrect actually. From what we know, Kali wasn't remodeled because of the backlash, Kali was remodeled because of two reasons:

1. Her model was old.
2. We partnered with Tencent and they don't allow human gore imagery.

In the interview about the backlash from the small group who protested, Todd Harris said that their uproar wouldn't affect the Hindu deities in the game. 

There won't be any problems with the Hindu community.

"old kali is way better then well.. kali" just had to pull up that quote. It's not that I'm against change, I'm just against the idea of smite characters being not bloody or well, dark. Because last time I checked, plenty of dark and horrible things happened in mythology, so what stick does tencent have up their ass?

By the way, so glad to have found you, I've found evidence of your work on the primary site, but it's so cool to see your actual art page. My friend Jacob and I are big fans of your work. Thank you for being awesome and an artistic inspiration to us both. :D

This god is EXACTLY how I like to play. Think I found my new main guardian.

Also Skin series idea: With Rata and Ganesha, you guys NEED to do a skin set based of the Green Lantern colors. Rata is a perfect green, because of Ch'p and Ganesha is a perfect blue because of Brother Warth. You can even have Cabrak be Red, since he's all about the anger. Aphro can be Pink

Call it: "The color guards"
