Athena by MargotYvy Athena by MargotYvy
This is my Entry for the "Greek God Contest" organized by the :iconredclub:.

I wanted to interpret the classic painting of Attic Greek Style, namely that of red figures on a black background (the story of the Red Figure Pottery on Wikipedia).

I chose the Goddess Athena: in Greek mythology, Athena was the goddess of wisdom, weaving, arts and, presumably, of the most noble of war. Its sacred symbols were the Owl and the Olive Tree. (on Wikipedia the history of Athena).

Hope you like it :highfive:.



P.S.Edit: I changed some details, like the line on the Goddess and a little on the Owl, the nuance between the column and the grass. I also added the name with a font "greek". Now it's a little more red and less orange and the background did not "defects". I hope like it anyway.



The Clubs have my permission to show my deviation in their Galleries.

- :icongurukitty: for superbe Owl;
- :iconladymigui-stock: for the Olive Tree;
- :iconlivinja-stock: for the beautiful Texture Crack.

That is a lovely rendition of Athena. Would you be willing to allow it to be used for a website? I'm the VP of a new organization for graduate Enlgish students at Colorado State university-Pueblo and we are building a blog for the organization. In my hunt for goor art for said blog I came across yours

you can email me at mr.sakamoto@colostate-pueblo.edu

Thanks!
