Athena - Awakening by algenpfleger Athena - Awakening by algenpfleger
The second one in the batch, client work that I can finally show! This was lots of fun to work on because I got to try many different things. I don't think I've ever put so much effort into effects and glowy things in a painting *A* I'm still quite happy with how this one turned out (am I allowed to say that?) I know there's a lot of cheap things about it, backlight, chick with sword, flying petals, grain and so on, but it was a very rewarding piece to do and I learned a lot doing it.

Very impressive rendering skills. I'm going to have to agree, her nose is small in comparison to her face.

I love it and it's one of the most beautiful pieces I ever laid my eyes on. However I'm really put off by her face. Her lips are (even though very well done) unnatural and not fitting to the image at all. I have no idea if that was your intention, but for me her face kind of spoils the whole image.
