Generations Bit 4

Posted Feb 19, 2006, 8:53:08 AM

Ok here's the last of the Generations series. I drew and inked this on paper and then colored it digitally. I was in a rush to get this done and move onto the next pieces so I couldn't spend as much time on the border as I would have liked. But overall I'm very pleased with how this piece turned out. I think this is my favorite piece of the six.

This piece was based on Greek mythology about Jason and the Argonauts. This is their ship saling to the island with the Golden Fleece.

All comments appreciated.

    You should give this a slight sepia tone to make it look old. I reckon that would suit well Smile Maybe an old paper edge... Then again, I'm tired ^^;

      Thank you for the suggestion. I may take some paper and wrinkle it and put the pieces ontop for the final collage.

        That's an idea Smile Maybe if you can burn the edges a little too :nods:

    OMG! You have to do another pic with this excellent border but with one of those lovely, old-school, flower-covered maidens, because this totally reminds me of those ones.. I wish i could remember the name of the guy that used to draw them for ad's and whatnot- great job! I love this pic!

      You mean Alphonse Mucha? I actually referenced his work when I made this lol.

      Thanks for the comments! I'll do more like this in the future.

    This looks really cool! I love greek mythology it's like my best subject for history eer...mythology lol. Just a question though did you use photoshop or Illistrator cause it looks alot like something that would be done in illustrator.

      Thanks Jill
      I did it in photoshop but I intended for it to have that Illustrator look. I don't know Illustrator that well.

        Yeah illustrator is hard to work with. I've got it at home. Even though I try to practice with it all the time it's just so hard to do.
