I had some time to fix up the original with some better highlights and such, and a much better scan. Made a logo for it (a hell of a hard logo to recreate) to put at the bottom of it. The poster is pretty big, so scanning it in pieces became a major bitch to do. I don't trust myself to take a dead on straight photo of it. I got the gall to finish it because one of my friend's younger sisters had her 12th birthday coming up and he asked if he could get a print of it to frame for her since it was her favorite movie. I told him I wanted to fix it up and add the logo before I gave it over the digital copy. I still see a lot of problems with this..but it will okay for now. I'm not used to doing large format over 20 inches. Hmmm... not much else I can say, but it does look a little better than the first one I posted. This version for the web got cropped for some reason. The logo isn't supposed to be touching the bottom edge! Argh...
Anyway, the mediums used for the poster are: watercolor washes, oil washes. sureguard II and colored pencils for shading and detail.
Argimpasa (Artimpasa) is the Scythian goddess of love and fertility corresponding to the Greek Aphrodite. She lived in a cave in Crimea. In ancient art, she was depicted as a beautiful long-haired woman with snakes instead of legs. Argimpasa became Hercules’ wife, and the couple had three sons. The youngest of the three—strong enough to draw back the string of his father’s bow—was named Scyth. He sired a great people, the Scythians.
Аргимпаса (Артимпаса) — скифская богиня любви и плодородия, соответствовавшая греческой Афродите. Жила в пещере в Крыму. Изображалась красивой женщиной с длинными волосами со змеями вместо ног. Аргимпаса стала женой Геракла и родила ему трёх сыновей. Младшего — достаточно сильного, чтобы натянуть тетиву отцовского лука — звали Скиф. От него и пошёл великий народ.
Some art class thing. Assignment was to create something using a variety of marks, so I combined the usual pencilwork with calligraphy ink and drew a clouded leopard. They only gave us one studio session from blank page to finished work, so I didn't really have time to plan anything out
