Artemis by trana-girl426 Artemis by trana-girl426
I think I got the catagory right...Oh wells.

Anyways, this is my depiction of Artemis, the Greek Goddess.
Ummm...reasons behind this picture, well...My Language Arts teacher is doing a Greek Mythology unit(I Love, Love, LOVE Greek Mythology!!!) And I asked her what her favorite Goddess was and she said Artemis. I'm going to give her the picture tomorrow! X3
She better like it. I spent the past 5 hours sketching, outlining, and friggin' coloring this thing! (Sounds simple but it really isn't. Believe it or not I used 40 different colored pencils for this picture...) And now my hand is cramping....XD

Anywho, this picture was rushed badly. There are areas where I could've spent more time on. The hand for example. I realized that I put the thumb on the WRONG side of the hand AFTER I outlined it *Facepalm* I also could have improved the face a little. Frankly, it looks a little awkward...I know it's something to do with the forehead and mouth. Those areas always troubled me when it came to side views. As for the stag, the antlers came out hideous! And the snout could have been a little longer.
As for the good things, I love how the eyes came out on both Artemis and the stag, ESPECIALLY Artemis. I was looking at pictures of models with my little sister and saw these women with outrageous eye makeup...so I decided to incorporate some of that into the pic! So beautiful! X3 I also like how I did Artemis' hair, so flowy and wavy! And the fur on the stag came out pretty awesome too!

Oh, and Artemis is not only the Goddess of the Hunt, she is also the Goddess of the Moon. That's why it's night time in the picture(Sorta, I need to work on darkening colors...*Sigh*) And that's why she and the stag have a cresent on their bodies(Chest for Artemis and Forehead for the stag) so pretty! :D Artemis' sacred animal is the stag so that's why he's in there. Her sacred tree is the Cypress(I think?) So thats what those leave thingies are....
............
Well that's my opinion of the picture, if you read this far then please leave a comment and possibly a critique?

Artemis (c) uhhh....The Greeks?

Well when I looked at this I thought, "OH look at all the colors!" Even though most of them was just blenders. Her eyes are very beatiful and that's what caught my eyes at first. Than I looked around the picture to see that little bit were the bandage doesn't meet with the others, and well uhm other stuff.
Besides the spots that you pointed out, I think the only other place is the body, or her breast. Just seems a little out of portion is all. Besides that the picture is VERY beautiful.

Yeah, I realize that now, her chest was a little out of proportion. XD

Thanks! :3

great coloring, saw your mistake and it's not that bad, close up's are really hard so just a suggestion, far away pic might be more work but it's easier to develop the character better sometimes
