Artemis by RinTau Artemis by RinTau
We were assigned to do a greek god/goddess with a specific, pre-determined month, I picked Artemis, the moon huntress, and she was paired with the month of October for the assignment. I had fun with this!

drawn in pencil, inked with micron 005 and 01 pens, and colors added in photoshop

Beautiful autumn colors, elegant linework, a tremendous amount of details and great character design make Artemis by ~Rin-Rin-Rin a winner in my book. Hope you enjoy it as well ! ( Suggested by solfieri and Featured by nighty )

I must say, you can create quite a spectrum with those lovely shades of rust and brown.

This is a wonderful creation. This image has the same feeling as the ancient Golden Age Greek murals and pottery, but with a distinctly modern sense to it. I don't know how that is even possible, but then I'm not an artist, I'm a lowly writer.

Absolutely beautiful!!

Also, I love how you combined Artemis with October, is there a reason why you did though? (I enjoy that you did because she is my favorite goddess and my birth month is October)

Thank you! ^_^ This was actually an assignment for school way back when! We were told to choose a god/goddess and then randomly given a month to go with them, and we had to illustrate it. :)

I love it! I love animals, I love autumn, and I love Artemis.

Would you mind if I use this to show the appearance of a character on an RPG site?

This is so much more beautiful than
my picture of Artemis I had to do for a Latin Project.
But it is insanely beautiful,
and I love how it encompasses all of her atributes.
