Flight of Icarus Picture

For Equestria Daily: Newbie Artist Training Ground Event

Day 14 Subject: Draw a pony representing a famous myth or classic story

I choose the "Flight of Icarus" But with an added twist. I know Icarus isn't female but I felt since I'm drawing ponies why not?

Flight of Icarus The main story told about Icarus is his attempt to escape from Crete by means of wings that his father constructed from feathers and wax. He ignored instructions not to fly too close to the sun, and the melting wax caused him to fall to his death (Taken from Wiki)

I felt that I could of been more creative with this one. But my mind is drawing a blank. Well hope you guys enjoy this. Also I'm going to try to start doing these ponies in my own style. So now I'm going to start shading and doing highlights like I did with this one. Instead of just trying to mimic the show style.

By the way Hercules is my favorite Greek Mythology story...probably should of done something with that but I really didn't know what direction I could of took with that...I most likely will regret my choice, because later on I realize I could of done something better instead...oh well I guess I can still do it later. :3

Now I have that Iron Maiden song stuck into my head! Good song though XD
