Athena by Janet Chui

by Janet Chui

Prompt: Owl (If you'd like some photos for inspiration look at this collection - not my own, inspiration only)
prompted by: Anke Wehner, during Sketch Fest #15 (June, 2011)

Really rough and fast one, since I had to prepare and leave shortly to lead a history tour (I know... I work on WEEKENDS!). Oh... where's the owl? Over Athena's right shoulder, that smudge there... (and after all those fabulous reference photos, LOL)!


Catherine Swinford says: Another great drawing. Can't believe we both got Athena from that prompt. =D ~ Reply?

     Janet Chui replied to this: Great minds think alike, as they say!

Alisha Christian says: Athena is my favorite Greek Goddess and you did an amazing job with her. I love the spear and the owl. The drape of her clothing is gorgeous. Beautiful work! ~ Reply?

     Janet Chui replied to this: Thank you. :)

Noreen says: Janet, your comments are so cute! There were so many inspiring owl pictures in Anke's link. And I bet you lead an awesome history tour! I hope Athena whispers to you to add color, I'd love to see her in her full glory! ~ Reply?

     Janet Chui replied to this: I'd love to paint Athena in colour; I like the pose of her here but will probably change the background. And yeah, my tours are awesome. ;)
