ATC - Prometheus In Blue Picture

My first ATC, completed. What's an ATC, you ask? I don't think I want to start trading until I have at least a few cards done, but I figured I'd go ahead and throw this one out there in case anyone might be interested in the future.

I'm very proud of this first one. It was inspired by my own love of this particular story, and by someone I care very much about who identifies with Prometheus. Since my usual muse seems to have abandoned me of late, he makes a lovely stand-in. The symbolism turned out well. Since I had the forethought to save the uncolored lines, I may try something with printing them and hand-coloring using different colors for mood/theme. I dunno.

-The hand of Prometheus, bearing the sacred flame he gave to mankind
-The eagle Ethon that ate his liver each day, and the shackles that bound him to the Caucasus
-The thunderbolt of Zeus
-The men that Prometheus created from the mud and clay of the earth
-The mountain to which he was bound, also a pyramid shape symbolic of the age of enlightment Man entered after receiving the sacred flame
