Actually they were allies at the beginning of the Trojan War. Ares promised Athena to side with her and support the Greek. But Aphrodite convinced him to side with Troy. 

There was never really a feud against them.

Dat rivalry. 
I love the juxtaposition you did with the positioning of everything, from their weapons to those spontaneous power manifestations.

Both very fitting an gorgous.

smiley onion, I'm a huge fan of MYth. I love your interpretation of Greek Mythology.Thank You Hearts Sign  for making it!

There is so much thought put behind each of the characters you make and, unlike some interpreters, you seem to embrace the philosophy behind their personas quite adequately. onion dance 
This drawing just spoke volumes to me and both Athena la-hoplite (greek)  and Ares la-gladius (greek)  look so awesome. You're a great artist. onion yep 

=====+=====

I personally like the idea of Ares and Athena Having a relationship and not just because they're both war gods but because they are the ying and yang of a single spectrum that encompasses both sides of a complex ideal. :brainstorm: 

Things they have in common and Reasons why they should be together Emoticon Eyes :

*One is passion. The other is the strategy that guides that passion. They are each other's balance Yin n' yang tard Yin and yang Yin n' yang tard !
*She was born from Zeus' head as the child of his first wife Metis (who in this interpretation has a VERY compelling back story) therefore making her (due to Zeus' vanity of loving any extension or reflection of himself) Zeus' favorite child. He was born through Hera's own form of "immaculate conception" or by touching a rare flower (according to some myths) due to his own mother's jealous retaliation of witnessing Zeus give birth to the later (Athena).
* The make up sex will just be.... Chinatsu Yoshikawa (Shy in love) [V1] !

Their modern equivalent would be:
Good Girl x Bad Boy
Jock X Geek
(ect...)
And i also like this couple for the sake of making Aphrodite and Hephaestus (he is so sexy in this :retarded-drool: ) far more complex and interesting characters. Aphrodite and Ares had kids together (we all know this). Athena adopted and raised Hephaestus' (possibly) only child Erichthonius as if he were her own son (bet some of you didn't know that). So yeah, I think it'd be pretty cool if people played on this idea a little bit. It'd be an interesting love story(s) in the hands of a great story teller and it be killing two pairings with one stone.

Okay thanks for those of you who read my rant! 
Goodbye and Thank you!
Happy Happy..Onion

Besides it's no stranger than those of us who support a niece(Persephone)xuncle(Hades) relationship! Muajajaja..How funny..Onion

They both reflect the two different aspects of warfare. Ares pretty much represent the fighting, bloodshed, death and open war of attrition. While Athena represents the tactical, strategic, and guerrilla-type aspect of war. In general they both HATE each other, but at the same time they can't get rid of each other, since war is a packaged deal.
