  • Greek Mythology - On-Going Series

    I just started a new project for myself (and a helluva goal) to draw all the monsters and creatures from greek mythology. So i will update this thread as i finish the sketches. Also to go a long with each sketch i will post a time-lapse video to go along with it to show my process.

    Btw, i am using the list from wikipedia found HERE and just starting from the top and working my down.

    So, first up is Cerberus! Everyone's favorite Hound from HELL!



    If you dont like the music just mute it. i only had a short track that i made in garage band that i just looped several times. but i think it fits. its something i will work on in the future.



    Thanks for viewing!

        I had thought about that, but i wasnt sure i could since i already have a blog in that forum. is it cool if i open a second one just for this series?
        Also, it seems this thread gets a lot more traffic than the art blog thread does

            Empousa


            Here's the video. Going with a different format than the other two. Includes facts about the character I'm drawing.

              Currently working on the next video, and i have to ask: do i really need the music in there? is it more of annoyance or does it make it more watchable?

                  Having a little trouble laying this one out
                  So here is a rough WIP for Scylla



                  Right now, I think she looks to cute rather than revolting and menacing

                  Any suggestions?

                  Ps the numbers are for the number of heads and tentacles she should have. (6 heads and 12 tentacles)

                    I gotta say this is awesome. I love Greek mythology (The odyssey in particular) Can;t wait to see your take on the Olympians and the Titans

                      You know what's crazy? I was scrolling down this post and was thinking to myself "I'm gonna suggest he draw Empusa". So, how about Cecrops, or Argus? Btw, did you do JCL, or even better, certamen?

                      EDIT: just saw that in your original post, you mentioned you were working off a list... just outed myself as a massive Latin nerd for no reason.

                        @JiuJitsuero - Thanks! I've always been really into greek mythology as well. even when i was a little kid. I think right now im just going to focus on the monsters of greek mythology, once i get through the list though, i might try my hand at the titans, gods, and heroes

                        @ghostcat - haha, well im glad you like it so far. i enjoyed that empousa piece, it was the funnest so far. those gorgons are a pain in the ass to draw haha. even that list that i am going off of is incomplete, it doesnt even have Scylla on there. so if you see anything missing from the list please let me know so i can add them in.
