Athena Sketch by Achen089 Athena Sketch by Achen089
A couple of days ago i was reading some bedtime stories to my little brother,they were about the Greek gods and i was surprised that despite being greek and named after one i had never drawn any myself.And i used to love greek mythology!

So i drew the one i was named after,Athena,Greek Goddess of Wisdom and War,knowledge and logic,strategy and heroic endeavour.Olive tree is one of her symbols (hence the lulzy olive leaves xD) and so is the Parthenon (also lulzy sketchy attempt in the background).I think my attempt on Medusa's head is also funny-looking,she's like D8<


But well,this only a sketch,a (hopefully better looking) coloured version will be done soon.

Χαίρομαι που σου άρεσε τοτε - αλλα θα το εκτιμούσα αν ζητούσες την άδεια μου πρώτα για να το χρησιμοποιήσεις για οτιδήποτε μπορεί να θέλεις.

Very nice, the lack of extra detail makes it easy for me to concentrate on the main subject (that is a complement). Very nice penciling job.
