Good depiction.   I like the way the Minotaur is done, strong and a bit furry.  Frankly, I hope he wins.

I am not making any money off it. I will give you credit for the art and have a link that will bring people to your website. Let me know if this ok. If not, I will take it down. This my blog: [link]

Thanks, I have been considering doing some more mythologically themed pieces...but I've been thinking NORSE mythology lately. Perhaps I should do a series of various mythologies...

I couldn't remember what this looked like from the last time I commented, so I returned to take a quick peek.
and once again my reaction is:
Wow.
Bloody hell.
Fabulous.
It really is.

I can't even begin to imagine how you'd combine colour with penmanship that delicate and intricate. But if it can be done (without totally losing your marbles) it will look stupendous.

Thanks so much...I really have to try to do some color stuff...I need to get some software and equipment...and perhaps take a class or two. I'm just waiting on my boatfull of money to come in! Your work has a distinctive style to it and you use color so wonderfully, thanks for looking!

Thanks! Yeah a lot of hours were spent on this one, I would love to do a large scale version of this some time in color with quite a few changes. Well, some day when I have plenty of spare time I guess...

Oh My Zeus! This is just stunning... and the Minotaur just rocks! Just as it did in my early teens, he sure fired up my sexuality. 2 horns way up!

Yeah, I'm not sure how long it took me altogether, perhaps I need to start keeping track of that type of stuff just for curiosity sake. I spent more time on this than anything I've done in a long time. Thanks for looking!

lovely work! I love all the detail you put into this picture

Plus its kinda nostalgic for me as that was the first myth I read as a child...Anyways great job!

Thanks, this picture was a pretty good challenge because of the maze wall, the atmospheric perspective, the faces in the crowd and the architectual aspects involved. It's kind of funny because all that was harder for me to do than Theseus or the Minotaur.

Ah, the background does indeed look like it was the hardest part to draw, but the fact you put so much effort into it makes the picture look even more wonderful!!
