Leda and the Swan Picture

From Wikipedia:
"Leda and the Swan is a motif from Greek mythology, in which Zeus came to Leda in the form of a swan. According to later Greek mythology, Leda bore Helen and Polydeuces, children of Zeus while at the same time bearing Castor and Clytemnestra, children of her husband Tyndareus, the King of Sparta. As the story goes, Zeus took the form of a swan and raped or seduced Leda on the same night she slept with her husband, King Tyndareus. In some versions, she laid two eggs from which the children hatched. In other versions, Helen is a daughter of Nemesis, the goddess who personified the disaster that awaited those suffering from the pride of Hubris."

This is another old piece. I hadn't uploaded anything for awhile and the stuff I'm working on is progressing very slowly. It's pretty easy to see that I was attempting to channel Mike Mignola with this piece. Zeus may have come off a little too creepy, but then again, a god who turns himself into a swan in order to seduce some chick can't be all there, can he?
Anyhoo, this is an ink and sharpie piece, with colors added in photoshop.
