.+. Athea .+. by LittleMissWiseass .+. Athea .+. by LittleMissWiseass
My completed college project illustration; I finally worked up the nerve to post it on DA. I have to admit I'm a bit annoyed that I still see things that I could have improved upon, but even so I'm so happy that I managed to pull it off in the end. It took quite a lot of work.

The illustration depicts Athea (pronounced ah-tee-ah), the Goddess of death, war and strong emotions in my close friend *Juubi-Ookamii's book. In the story she is often feared for her role in the ending of life, but it is shown throughout the novel that she isn't the bringer of death - she simply guides people safely through it.

Although there wasn't a huge amount of detail on her; I really wanted to depict as accurately as I could. So everything in the image has a significant symbolic meaning with her role. Please let me know if you can spot them - some of them arn't all that obvious.

Athea *Juubi-Ookamii

Kind of like how Davy Jones was given the duty to guide souls lost at sea to the afterlife. Of course, something tells me Athea didn't stray from her duty.

This is a beautifully done piece^_^! Really. Your art never ceases to amaze me:clap: Don't you think she'd make a cool Yugioh card^_^?

The thought did cross my mind; but I have the feeling that the owner of the character might chase me from my house with a machete if I suggested it to her. XD If Athea was a card I have no doubt she'd be pretty damn strong though.

Thanks so much for the support, it's deeply appreciated :)

w-whaoooooooo, oh my gods, this is liek, pure distilled amazing. .____________.

I can't see anything wrong with it, but, I know from experience that we always see more flaws in our own work, then people do to ours. It's just how we are sometimes I guess. |D But it's a good thing, that we know what we need to improve on. :3 I really do love this, and I bet your teacher or whatever will love it too. |D
