"What The World Deserves"

Sketch #40

Fast sketch. I was looking to do an Atlas pose sometime, but I didn't want it to be just Atlas holding my paper lantern.

He was a god that never got a big part in Greek mythology. But he got a very BIG part in God of War.

Atlas never held up the world; he held up the sky. I wonder why he's always depicted holding the globe of the Earth.

And I know the concept of Atlas holding a "globe" is fairly recent. The world was FLAT back then.
