Here is perhaps, my favourite goddess, Selene. She is very well described in ancient mythology. She's said to have a round, and very white face, and wears a long white gown (or robes) and a half moon on her head. Selene rides across the sky, torch in hand, on a chariot pulled by two milk white horses, and is often accompanied by a cat and/or a rabbit.
My depiction(s) of Selene (I've drawn her many times before) is admittadly, very Sailor Moon inspired, which, in all fairness, makes sense when you consider that Selene was one of the major inspirations for Sailor Moon. Selene and King Arthur, read the manga, you'll see what I mean.

I took a few liberties with my Selene. In classical depictions, Selene's half moon headdress is quite large (rather remenescent of those worn by Isis or Hathor) and while a larger or more statuesque woman might be able to pull it off, on my petite Selene it appeared clunky. Instead, I opted for a small silver half moon, suspended by two strands of pearls. I Extended Selene's torch, making it something of a staff, simply because it looked more regal.

Sadly, my scanner ate some of the more subtle colours in my pic. The mare in the original is much prettier, and her muscles are much more wll defined. Despite that, I hope you enjoy my pic.

I met a lady in the meads,
Full beautifu, a fairy's child;
Her hair was long, her foot was light,
And her eyes were wild
