There are some awesome redesign contests over on Warren Ellis' forum every once in a while and, while I watched from afar, I've never had time to participate... But who am I to resist Egyptian mythology, COME ON.

The idea for this particular challenge was to do a modern day version of Sakhmet, as she might appear in comics. I took a bit of a high fashion route in interpreting her traditional garb (read: ZIPPERS EVERYWHERE ZIPPERS), and what the hell! I like it.

Cool looking. Funny coincidence, one of my original super villains is named and based off of this particular Egyptian Goddess.

She's the other half of Hathor cow Goddess of love, Sekhmet is all, bloody revenge on whoever threatens those Hathor loves. Typical duel-aspect Goddess. "Hell hath no wrath like a woman scorned" meets Mama Bear protecting her cubs. Love the face, the body (the colour of the body), the pose & the winding smoke really polishes it off... don't hate the clothes but I don't love them either.

Okay. When I get my own little nook in my own little house I am buying prints of your work and pasting them all over my walls. Your work is amazing.

By the gods, this is absolutely beautiful. I may be putting my foot in my mouth, but what about Bastet? Now I may be gushing. I just adore the clothing you decided to give her. It's absolutely beautiful.
