Athena by Scebiqu Athena by Scebiqu
I found time to do another mythology piece.
Athena - The goddess of wisdom, war and other stuff.
Hope you like. :)

Photoshop over traditional pencil

An owl for wisdom AND the dogs of war by her side, of course. :)

Colour seems a bit too agressive for the godess of wisdom and calculating though (among other things).

Never said it is bad though.

This piece is... amazing.
My husband is an Athenian Wiccan, his soul animal are wolves and he loves owls for their wisdom (and adorableness.)
I'm looking to get him something for his birthday and I came across this... It is absolutely perfect. If I were able to get this as a print... I would be so grateful.

Thanks for taking the time to hear me out, have a great day!

Athena has always been my favorite Greek Goddess and have always felt she has never been done any kind of justice.... Until now. I love it.

She's beautiful =] but I was just thinking, isn't Ares the god of war? Just wondering

If I got it right Ares was seen as a more blindly destructive aspect of war embodying things like bloodbath and massacre. While Athena stood for a more "sophisticated" kind of combat with Strategy and Tactic.

Ares is the God of the Bloody Massacre-part of War
Athena is the Goddes of Strategic Warfare
Which both usually gets shortened to just 'war' ;)

yeah, it doesn't help that most addaptions of greek myths (I'm staring at Disney here) leave out the War-part of Athena's job-description all together...
Reply
:iconsunnyshiney:
sunnyshiney Featured By Owner Mar 4, 2012
yeah. I only started gettin interested in it after reading Percy Jackson (has to finish fifth one...) and it never says anything about her war thing...
I love you interpretation though.
