Friendly old Ferryman Picture

Ladies and gentlemen, your cheery guide awaits. For the low-low price of a single penny, Mr. Charon here will ferry you across the river Styx to the land of the dead. We highly discourage swimming in the water, as not even Charon himself knows what lies beneath the turgid surface. Don't try to rip the ferryman off, or you're liable to spend eternity wandering aimlessly along the shore... you won't be the first to do so.

Done entirely in Corel Painter, no sketch or anything, just had the concept while driving to work. Yay for mythology and the afterlife and stuff! Charon is copyright the ancient greeks, though I doubt they're in any position to sue me having already made Charon's acquaintance.

Art by ME!

Merry Christmas
