Character design: Hera -SKETCH- Picture

Hera from my "Tales of Myths" project. WARNING - it's really rough and will be digitally redone^^

Actually, that's not exactly the colour scheme I was planning to use. To me Hera is an embodiment of the Queen - regal and beautiful. Originally I imagined her standing next to Zeus, both of them in golden clothes/armour.

Some other symbols used:
- maple leaves - one of several plants, symbolizing this goddess
- armour elements - one of Hera's symbols is a shell. Well, I guess armour can be considered as something shell-representating^^
