Headless Nike Picture

This is my best art project from last semester, that I'm just posting now. Yeah.

We had to find a picture of a sculpture (mine is a sculpture of the Greek goddess Nike. Man, I love greek mythology!), and paint in one colour, mine being blue. But we painted in this really awesome way. We would start by painting it all in just one flat colour, and then use taltine, sponges, Q-tips, whatever, to create highlights, and a darker shade for shadows.
It was a lot of fun, actually!
For the background I decided to try and give the impression that it was glowing like a real goddess (granted, a goddess without arms or a head xD)
I really like how this turned out!

Time: Umm....I'm going to say around 10 hours, but it was broken up into classes and all that stuff
