Ancient Greek legends speak of the god Hephaestus who was rejected from Olympos for being a cripple, but a few rare description mention a twin sister who was also rejected for her looks. Like Hephaestus, she was also accepted begrudgingly amongst the gods after her contribution to the Trojan war under the condition that she wore a helmet at all times.
Disappointed and angry at the world, she became the goddess of misfortune, bringing (mostly fire-related) catastrophes upon all who dared look at her. That includes you.

Really cool, Reginald. Favourite bit is the hot red wings juxtaposed against the cold lights from an awesome mask design.

Suggestions would be not to draw your character concepts so that their feet lay flat on the floor. If you check out Jouste's concepts, for example, the view point looks over the feet, rather than head on.

The pose is also lifeless, and doesn't add much to the character concept. The anger you mention in your description isn't coming across - maybe because of the mask, but her pose seems pretty chilled out.

I also think the robe folds are excessive, and doesn't naturally fall over the shape of the body. The belt doesn't look like it's tied round the body; it's more like a decoration.

Hope you do well this week.

Those wings were pretty much my favourite part to paint, mainly because I used a very Painter-ish program that had those delicious wet brushes.

The feet were a problem for myself too. They were originally covered by cloth, but then I still drew them sticking out. That created the conflict with the background that you noticed and so I just cropped the as much of the lower edge of the image as possible, hoping that no-one's watchful eyes wouldn't notice them :P
Admittedly she was never meant to be Hulk-angry though, more of a apathetic at all the pain she caused/was about to cause.
Guess I keep practicing those folds then!

Cheers for the review, Turkey!
