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!).

I produce 100% printed t-shirts. I would love to do with this image, but I would like to do with the full body image. You do?

WARNING! Carry on reading! Or you will die, even if you only looked at the word warning! Once there was a little girl called Clarissa, she was ten-years-old and she lived in a mental hospital, because she killed her mom and her dad. She got so bad she went to kill all the staff in the hospital so the More-government decided that best idea was to get rid of her so they set up a special room to kill her, as humane as possible but it went wrong the machine they were using went wrong. And she sat there in agony for hours until she died. Now every week on the day of her death she returns to the person that reads this letter, on a Monday night at 12:00 a.m. She creeps into your room and kills you slowly, by cutting you and watching you bleed to death. Now send this to ten other pictures on this one site, and she will haunt someone else who doesn't. This isn't fake. apparently, if you copy and paste this to ten comments in the next ten minutes you will have the best day of your life tomorrow.You will either get kissed or asked out, if you break this chain u will see a little dead girl in y

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.
