Yay! Athena was always my most favorite goddess. I think you've captured her quite well Smile

Hey Thanks for your comment. Indeed you are correct! I wanted to portray her in the themes she's less known for, and also in a more shamanistic fashion- hence the snakes and owl which represent wisdom, and the parchment in her hand. I do have another athena image coming up in the next year which would represent a more warrior athena. Smile

Well, I'm unable to draw something anywhere near this but, as a specialist of Athena in a professional way ( I'm a historian of greek antiquity ) I'm quite surprised by the apparence of your goddess who lacks some of the most elemental elements of her clothe ( shield, gorgona head, aegis, ... ). Yet this comment must not make the most important forgotten : well done !

Art at its best.
