Athena Sketches Picture

It was such a long time since I drew Athena that I felt I better start warming up a bit, if she's going to be the main character in my next comic. So I tried to draw her in different stages of the story.

When Pallas dies, Athena cuts her hair off as a sign of mourning, dresses as a warrior and leaves for Olympus. The third sketch is probably how she mostly will look like in the flashbacks, when her life has started to be a little less fucked up.
