Perseus Picture

One of the drawings I drew and inked while I was in Italy in January, and which I added color a few days ago. This is Perseus, a character from Greek mythology who slays the Gorgon Medusa in order to save his mother Danae.

Here he is equipped with a sword from the god Hermes, and the three items he obtains on his journey - winged shoes, a helmet/hat that makes him invisible, and a bag in which to carry Medusa's severed head.

BTW, Kid Icarus fans, does the story of Perseus sound familiar?
