Greek Goddess Nike

This was all drawn and colored while I was at work between breaks and down time.I used a different sheet of paper on this piece than what I normally use. This had it's challenges; let's just say that when I did originally intend on sketching this piece out, I intended on being able to do a lot more with it than what I just did, but I quickly found out that my sheet of paper was a 1/2 inch too short in both directions to be able to do much else with it other than what I had already done. To be fair in all honesty this piece came out really well, in fact both the line art and the coloring/shading came out so well that I almost think that it is better than my dipiction of Athena's Birth. In fact as of writing this, this is probably best shading that I've ever done on any of my art pieces so far (and I still haven't used my expensive Prisma Colored Pencils yet). I figured that it would be time for me to draw another picture of Nike, since I've only officially drawn 1 other picture of her (ever) and she was standing along side Athena back in October/September 2013.I'll admit that I debated with myself with a few details such as whether or not I'd finally draw some sandals on her feet or leave her bear foot and whether or not I should add a few more armor pieces to her outfit (I mean she is still not carrying much armor wise). I figured in the end since she can fly so she won't be getting too much use out of the sandals and like the sandals the additional armor pieces would be in the same case since she probably wouldn't be seeing a whole lot of combat and the fact that if/when she ever did, she was more than capable of evading her enemies since she had the ability of flight. Let's face it the armor pieces that I do have her currently wearing is more for decoration than they are for practical use since it's not a complete armor set and in reality wouldn't offer anyone much of any protection from injury. Another detail, that I did away with for this picture in specific was her sword sheath (and yes I did do that on purpose). I figured that I'll need to redesign it like I did to Athena's sword sheath so it's more ornate.I had someone at work ask me if this was going to be used as a book cover. The answer is probably not unless someone want's to write an entire book about Nike.
