Pentheus and the Maenads Picture

This is a piece I did for Classics. It's a scene from Euripides' The Bacchae where Pentheus is disguised as a Maenad.
I appreciate that the drawing might be a bit off, but as it's all in Marker pens I guess the colouring is excusable. Dionysus in the left side of the picture might look a bit squashed against the side, but his presence WAS needeed in the picture to give the intended effect.
Overall Time: 2 hours (?)

The Bacchae (Greek: Βάκχαι / Bakchai; also known as The Bacchantes) is an ancient Greek tragedy by the Athenian playwright Euripides, during his final years in Macedon, at the court of Archelaus I of Macedon. It premiered posthumously at the Theatre of Dionysus in 405 BCE as part of a tetralogy that also included Iphigeneia at Aulis, and which Euripides' son or nephew probably directed. It won first prize in the City Dionysia festival competition.

The tragedy is based on the mythological story of King Pentheus of Thebes and his mother Agavë, and their punishment by the god Dionysus (who is Pentheus' cousin) for refusing to worship him.

Pentheus gets ripped apart by his own mother.
