Bellerophon Picture

This was the second project for my Character Design class: recreate an epic scene surrounding two clashing characters. This is only half the project, since my friend did the other character, but it's a standalone image anyway. We chose Bellerophon and the Chimera's battle for our project, since we both love mythology and legends. We were allowed to do whatever we wanted, so I made Bellerophon and his steed Pegasus into one person, since it would allow me to practice human AND horse anatomy at the same time! Overall, I'm really glad how it came out (and I learned that clouds are hard to paint. XD)
