The Avenger of Sekhmet

Here is something that I put together using some odds and ends that I doodled here and there; The Avenger of Sekhmet. For those of you who are not myth-savvy, I will give a little outline of who in the hells Sekhmet is.

Sekhmet was the lion-headed goddess of war and warriors in the ancient Egyptian religion. Born of the fire in the eye of Ra, the Sun God, she was his tool of vengeance upon the upstart humans, and she did her job well till the Nile ran red. Worried that mankind would be annihilated, Ra and the fellow gods tricked her to drink 7000 jugs of beer coloured red as blood, and the hangover cured her rage! ๐Ÿ˜€

That being said, the illustration here is that of an Avenger of Sekhmet; a warrior woman imbued with the divine fury of the lion goddess, ready to cut a swath through the enemies of the Nile. Historically incorrect butย  fun idea, methinks.

Enjoy!
