Bellerophon and Pegasus at King Proteus' palace Picture

This is the spread for pgs 8-9 in Compass Media's "Bellerophon and Pegasus."

Bellerophon grooms Pegasus as his patron, King Proteus, and his wife stroll by. Proteus' wife has her eye on Bellerophon, and Proteus notices. Naughty!

Seriously this painting was so difficult to paint, what with the ornate Greek costumes, the palace, the greenery, and Pegasus. A friend of mine commented that this was a children's picture book as imagined by David O. Selznick, which sounds about right. The only thing needed to make this more epic would be a legion of Spartans marching by.
