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.

Okay. When I get my own little nook in my own little house I am buying prints of your work and pasting them all over my walls. Your work is amazing.

By the gods, this is absolutely beautiful. I may be putting my foot in my mouth, but what about Bastet? Now that...eh...Sorry I may be gushing. I just adore the clothing you decided to give her. It's absolutely beautiful.

*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.
