CE: 'Till Death Picture
Reblog it HERE on Tumblr!
Contest Entry for the mythology run by =uchuubranko and :eindraa
I saw the contest journal and I COULDN'T NOT ENTER OKAY GREEK MYTHS ARE THE COOLEST
For my entry, I chose Corvus, the crow, but I included Apollo as well. Corvus was a girl that Apollo was in love with, but she was unfaithful so Artemis killed her with arrows. This picture I guess is kind of when she is being set as a constellation by the gods, and Apollo saying goodbye. I didn't picture them hateful in my head, I'm not sure why, despite Corvus's infidelity. Either way, Apollo loved her once if not still, so a farewell before death in my opinion would be appropriate. The little things raining down from Corvus's wings are wedding rings, by the way, a symbol of course for all the ones she probably ruined. I didn't originally plan for it to be modern, but since I didn't have time to find a ye old substitute for an umbrella I just went for it. Haha poor Apollo dressed for a date too~
I probably won't place, there are so many talented artists participating, but the piece was fun to work on nonetheless ; 7 ; Wish me luck!
The next few days I'll be posting some work that I did during my weekend at popexpo, but after that I doubt you'll be seeing any art before christmas break. Can't wait to do nothing for two weeks 8D
