The Goddess of war and Wisdom Picture

One of my takes on Athena. I know she has been done a thousand times and rightly so, she is a very strong woman who needed no man. She is known for her wisdom and as a guide to the hero's.

I wanted to do something a little more updated, having her have piercings and tattoos but still keep her major symbols such as olives, owls and the Medusa shield (why do two of the three of those things begin with O I have no clue).

Any ways I hope anyone who sees this enjoys.

ps. her helmet was the hardest part >.<
