Modern Day Olympic Pantheon

Athena - She’s smart, artistic, and a little bossy. You can find her at the library brushing up on her war history.

Fantastic! Your whole modern Olympians series is well-drawn and pretty clever, but as Athena is as ever my favorite so I had to comment here (though I'll happily comment on the others too, if you like).

 

Anyway, I love this Athena. First off, her attire is perfect: comfortable-looking with just a bit of understated style (I'm thinking particularly of the shoes here). Feminine, but not girly, if that makes sense. Practical, mostly. The book is an obvious but necessary attribute, but I like how hidden the other two attributes are: you just might just miss the owl on her sweater (and a sweater is a perfect aegis for her -- a unisex outfit that's loose-fitting), and the olive sprig in her hair adds another feminine touch (along with the bangs, softening her otherwise bound-up hair). And I also like that you made her a brunette: there's no reason that she has to be one, but for some reason Athena just strikes me as a brunette. *shrug*

 

So yeah, uh, short version: I like it!

I get super excited to see these in my inbox. Do you get information on them from somewhere, or do you just imagine what they look like?

These are 100% made up. I do try to incorporate some mythology when I can (the owl, the woven top, the olive branch) but I make up the designs on my own :)

Oh ok just wondering. At school we had a mythology unit in English, and there are apparently some visual descriptions. I don't know what the others are, but there are things like how Demeter has blonde hair like wheat....

Maybe? I don't really know haha. I just kind of pick what I want them to look like. Plus I'm planning to add diversity because drawings of 12 white people would be boring :)
