Greek goddess- Athena by Alayna Greek goddess- Athena by Alayna
EDIT 6/2/10: Okay, I finally updated the image to the color version. I have been waiting months debating whether I should make it a new deviation or just update this image. Sorry, hopefully you guys like the color better =) Black and white is here: [link]

If you hate the color version and want the black and white up, let me know!

Athena, for Troll Lord Games' Castles & Crusades: Of Gods & Monsters by Jim Ward.

Athena is the goddess of war and battle. She is also the goddess of wisdom. She is usually seen with a spear and the shield given to her by Zeus, with the head of Medusa at its center (I didn't paint it since you can't see it with this pose, ahahahahhaa!).


8 left! Aie-aie-aieee!! Only one woman then 7 guys to do D: boourns.

I have been looking at getting an Athena tattoo and this image really strikes me. A strong, powerful, beautiful depiction. I hope you don't mind if I get her image tattooed. I may just turn her around so I can put an owl on the shield to represent wisdom, but otherwise this is exactly what I am looking for.

Wow! Amazing work! Love it!

I was wandering if you could let me us this image for an Android game called "Kingdoms of Myth", it's turn based strategy game based on a fantasy World. You can find a little bit more info in this rough website made by my colleges [link] (Sorry for the bad English). Of course you will have full credits of your work and link to your webpage if you want :)

Lot of thanks for your time ;)

If you don't mind, i'm using the image as the base for the artwork of a song i'm making named "Graciosa Atena" ( In English "Gracious Athena") I already credited the main image to you.

Hope there's no problem!

Nice art! I would like to ask for permission if it's okay to have your art be part of my list on my site? I am looking forward to feature some great gods and goddesses on my site. You can check out my site here, at the bottom. Of course I'll put a credit that this is your own art. :)
Hope you'll agree! \(^_^)/
