'ARKE was the goddess of the lost second rainbow. She was the twin sister of the rainbow-goddess Iris. At the onset of the Titan-Wars the pair chose to serve on opposite sides - Iris becoming the winged messenger of the Olympian Gods and Arke the messenger of the Titanes. At the end of the war, Zeus stripped Arke of her wings, and cast her into Tartaros with the Titanes.' (Thanks to Theoi Project for the info). Photoshop. First attempt to do anime. Done for the MOC contest. Background done in Bryce and then edited in photoshop. My photos from Greece used as a reference for the temple, which was drawn directly in photoshop.

Cool pic. I love that you used Bryce. I have Poser 4 & Bryce 2, but I haven't yet tried to use them in my art for Elfwood. You said that this was your first try at anime, well, you did a great job. The pose is perfect, but the colors really make it stand out. Nice job all the way around. Love that rainbow!

:-) Katarina 'Agarest' Hanson replies: "I've used photoshop for rainbow. And I've used such colours because she ment to be the goddess of rainbow, so I thought she should wear something of a rainbow-colour."

O.o It's not all dark and gothic! Who are you and what've you done with Katarina!?

Beautiful colouring job none-the-less, but I do prefer your darker art. Still, this is very well done, awesome stuff. =)

Oh and what was that Joy of Satan link on your main page about, by the way? It didn't work see. O.o

:-) Katarina 'Agarest' Hanson replies: "Oh well... It was just the pic for the moc cnstest. Tryed smth new. Failed. Nevermind, it happens, lol 2. Link? doesn't work? let me see...."
