KNOWLEDGE_OF_ATHENE

A rough sketch that evolved into a character/posture study. Athene was always one of my favorite gods of the ancient hellenic pantheon, embodying a unique mixture of femininity, strength, and wisdom. This is probably a bit of a departure from what most expect to see when imagining the patron deity of Athens; I have to give credit to Robbie Trevino who's work was largely an inspiration for the style approach.
