REMAKEREMODEL: Sekhmet by shoomlah REMAKEREMODEL: Sekhmet by shoomlah
There are some awesome redesign contests over on Warren Ellis' forum every once in a while and, while I watched from afar, I've never had time to participate... But who am I to resist Egyptian mythology, COME ON.

The idea for this particular challenge was to do a modern day version of Sakhmet, as she might appear in comics. I took a bit of a high fashion route in interpreting her traditional garb (read: ZIPPERS EVERYWHERE ZIPPERS), and what the hell! I like it.

*shrugs* they added it, not me- looks like their theme is just about powerful women, not Amazons in particular. I don't know what to tell you.

Very cool. In particular, I dig her whiskers. But she looks prepared to kick some asses. Seeing more of the Egyptian pantheon like this would be awesome.

She looks cool. Nice job making this. Oddly, Sekhmet doesn't get as much popularity as Anubis, Ra, Horus and Bastet, eventhough she's the daughter of Ra and controls the destructive power of the Sun.
