King Minos Picture

This was supposed to be the mythological King Minos of ancient Crete.
I tried to depict him as ageing and weighed down by his responsibilities, and the hard choices he has had to make during his life and reign.

I tried out my new brush set, and as if that was not challenge enough, the colour scheme ran away from me completely. I found it extremely hard to work with the orange colour, and I think it ended up looking more like a sunrise, than a sunset.

This picture entered the ugly phase, and never got out of it. It could do with a lot more work, but right now Im too frustrated with it, and I don't know if I'll ever finish it.
