Here's the first finished design for the Greek Gods project I worked on outside of school. I've basically been working on these during the past 2 weeks. This design is probably the most traditional and stereotypical "Greek" of all the ones I did. I'm still pretty happy with it though.

This is really great, a lot of people forget that Athena was quite the Warrior. I think she even bested Ares once! :)

maybe because athena is the goddess of battle strategy.

and I think Ares use his muscles while Athena use her brain and strategies...

This has got to be the best depiction of the aegis with medusa's head mounted on it that I have ever seen.

Amazing, she's the best of the gods in my opinion.

This amazingly-designed artwork has been featured here:
Top 10 Illustrations of Athena – Goddess of Wisdom

That article is part of the session called Olympian Gods and Goddesses of Greek Mythology. It is basically a series of articles dedicated to collect the beautiful and real looking images of the Olympians.

Medusa's head looks fantastic, so does the owl on her shoulder.

please, please let me juse your Greek gods. I will credit you and all!
I want to juse them for a RPG (Role Playing Game) I'm starting called Play a God. I need some pictures for the description of the gods and your art is just amazing!

I really like the strong bone structures of the face. It gives her nobility as well as fierce beauty.

umm, not to rain on your parade but you missing a god. Hades wasn't considered one of the 12 Olympians nor Hestia even though they both were ones of the original 6. Hestia gave up her place as one of the 12 to Dionysus, god of wine, ritual and ecstasy.
