PP Deity Event: Nyx by fancynancy25 PP Deity Event: Nyx by fancynancy25
Angel as the Greek goddess Nyx for *Shintari's deity mini-event

Nyx, the goddess of the night, one of the first-born elemental gods, simply portrayed as the substance of night: a veil of dark mist drawn from the underworld which blots out the light of day, connecting the Earth to the heavens above. In ancient art she was portrayed as a winged goddess or a charioteer, sometimes crowned with an aureole of dark mist. Alone she spawned numerous dark spirits including the three Fates, Sleep, Death, Strife, and Pain. Breeding with Darkness, she produced Light and Day.[link]

somehow, deeply metaphorically, this suits her ^^
tried to make her look as stoic and emotionless as possible and i took some liberties of course, for instance when i searched "aureole" it was either a saint-like circle behind or above the head or a halo. not being saint-like and going with the "angel" pun, i slapped on a halo ^U^
...stoopid ancient scanner accentuates the mistakes _ _lll
tools: .7 mech. pencil, standard copy paper, cotton ball, and my finger ^^'
now to get on with tons of other mini events and valentines thingies, wish me luck! :iconfoxthumbplz:
...speaking of valentines...anyone want a candy gram from her~? :iconfoxpervplz:
