Greek Mythology - Arachne Picture

A part of my final project for 2D design class, fall 2007 semester, which was a 2x3-inch book about different influences on Greek Mythology, as well as the influences it's had on the world.

This is Arachne. Her entry read:

"After being bested in a tapestry-weaving contest, Athena tore her opponent's flawless masterpiece to shreds. Unable to bare this humiliation, Arachné hanged herself. But, the envious Goddess refused her death, instead transforming the would-be dead girl into a tiny, eight-legged creature, sentencing she and her descendants to a life of eternal weaving. Athena's influence is still remembered to this day, as the word "arachnid" was inspired by Arachné's name."
