I Stand Alone by tigerli-ly I Stand Alone by tigerli-ly
I redrew Artemis!

Yeah yeah I know Rick said she has auburn hair, but I always liked her better in black... besides, Greeks had mostly black hair.

Again, lets go back in history, to see this: [link], the very same goddess drawn by the very same artist (!) only 8 months ago... I don't know but I call that improvement... the older one looks embarrassing...

What Do You Think?

I like them both but this one is better indeed.
I love the dresses and I preffer this one's hair length and style; I usually love red hair but this hair color suits Artemis much better.
the previous one has better ... shoes or whatever you may call it.
this one has a nice background; it fits quite well with the goddess in question.
I personally hate Artemis because of what she did to medusa, but you know... it's my feeling about her...character.
I love greek mythology illustrations of any God or nymph, or hero or ''whatever'' at all and this one looks pretty cool and yet serious and mysterious... pretty good work with her braid! take care

The shoe point is exactly what my cousin had said... I didn't even look at the old one when I was drawing this.

Actually, Athena was the one who cursed Medusa... Artemis had nothing to do with it, though she did have some blood on her hands from some other poor unlucky victims.

Gods were so selfish, my 11 year old cousin is more mature than them.

I believe. they were tough indeed, but if they weren't, I guess the stories wouldn't be so cool, anyway. :D

wow major improvement! I am so proud of you and happy for you too! :huggle: And I like her better with black hair too, I don't know she can appear in whatever form she wants so maybe she just switches it around sometimes!

Instead they lock themselves in Olympus and watch Hephaestus TV.

Sure! then I could draw Crossovers like my avengers and you could write at the same time!

No, what can we find that would fit?

hmmm... you have a point! Last night my sister and I came up with a Greek fangirl goddess! I mean she wouldn't be the fangirl goddess but she could fit the bill! I don't which one would though

I think the first version was good, but I definitely see improvement. The way you've drawn her here expresses more life and personality somehow, if that makes sense.

I'm pretty sure you're right about the Greeks' hair (I think they *all* had black hair back then...).

It does make sense, her face looks more fierce. Thanks!

All is a little too big, like how many Iranians have brown or light brown hair and to a smaller degree blond hair. Same as how not everyone has black or brown eyes or all don't have olive skin.

I love Artemis, and the way you portrayed her matched my view pretty well. I agree, darker hair does make her seem more fierce, which is how she's supposed to be ;) Nice job!

Thanks! I couldn't help but think that auburn hair made her seem a little too young. I mean that fooled Percy... then again Percy isn't that hard to fool... never mind.

I LOVE how you drew her hair! It's gorgeous! And her dress, feet and hands are amazing too.
Her neck, arms and legs are a bit too skinny, but it doesn't take away from the overall amazing-ness of this picture. :D

I guess braids just really match well with archery... Katniss for example.
Yeah, I think you're right.
