Prometheus and the Centaur Picture

Drawn during this winter quarter while I was taking a classical mythology class. This is the depiction of Chiron, the centaur, exchanging his immortal life for Prometheus' freedom. Prometheus is being punished by Zeus for tricking him, giving man fire, and knowing which of Zeus' children would overthrow him but not telling. He is chained to a rock and his liver is eaten by an eagle [according to Edith Hamilton] until either Hercules kills the eagle or when Chiron, after being poisoned by Hercules' arrow, sacrifices himself.

This was a lot of fun, the rocks were a challenge. I love the result, although it seems people have a hard time making out the figures in the detail so I will eventually color this... maybe.

Done in micron.
