A Fishy Tale: Athena by winRie A Fishy Tale: Athena by winRie

Entry Update: A more clearer shot of the painting! Thank you, 5D. Thank you. Hooray.
--------------

" And in her eyes you see nothing
No Sign of Love behind the Tears
Cried for no One,
A love that should have lasted years.

You Want her, You need her,
And yet you don't believe her
when she says her love is dead
You think she needs you."

-Track10: For No One| THE BEATLES

What is within her heart, none can ever know. The lady who hides her emotions behind a fish mask. Athena is aware of her own charisma, And she makes those people who love her suffer. Including me.

------------------------------------------------------------------------

:la:My entry for the skribble contest! :la:

So I made a few sketches, and the one I came up with the pack is a fish-shaped mask. It's been hard to think of something out of it, but I made it a point that I wanted to make the lines very much seen, and not hidden in the artwork. So there goes the fish mask, very much appreciated infront! Yay! The grayish snow flake patterned background gives a light "feel" and mood on the final artwork, I think. And there's the coffee tear. Hee.

And of course, the girl, and the blush, and the thousand lashes.

looks good winRie! I started a few pics for this contest, but i started a new job and didnt finish :/ I like the description adds a lot more depth to the picture. And the hair and background patterns.
