Athena by Super-Chi Athena by Super-Chi
This drawing is a tattoo commission for a friend. :)
I really enjoyed working on this piece, as I am very fascinated by Greek mythology.

According to Wikipedia, Athena is the Greek Goddess of wisdom, courage, inspiration, civilization, law and justice, just warfare, mathematics, strength, strategy, the arts, crafts, and skill.

Didn't even notice the legless floating until i had already zoomed in and started to scroll down...

This is probably one of your best pieces that i can remember, especially the shading work on the helmet and shield

I decided on the legless dress since I figured it'd look better as a tattoo that way.

In ancient Greece and medieval Italy Athena was look on more favorably then her counterpart Ares, as Athena was consider Procter of peace. While Ares was the look as the violent aspect of war or one with reason as he needed none. Ares is even consider a bigger bad guy then Hades who not really evil just mean ^^;. The Romans are the only once that seem to like him over Athena but that not surprising >.>;.
