This is the first illustration I did for the book. It was a kind of exam, to decide if I was going to do the illustrations or not. The liked a lot, the only problem being the nudity, but they decided very soon that they liked the way it is. so I disn't have to change it.

Watercolor and a bit of photoshop.

Heya. Heads-up that a page on facebook is using this image without citing you as the artist: www.facebook.com/Artisawayofsu… the only way to stop this from happening is to report the page for copyright infringement. I've been in contact with quite a few artists whose work has been reposted without credit by this page, but the page keeps on benefitting from others' work. Best wishes for the future. Cato.

Thats fantastic work. well done fella
And dont worry about the nudity, art loves nudity, the modern society sees every nude body as a sexual thing, while it is not, a body is so much more.

Beautiful. I love Apollo's body language. You can actually feel how heartbroken he is. I'm in love with this!

A client brought this into me for a tattoo, and I've been trying to find the original artist.  I would love to show you the finished product and credit you for the artwork.  lilarees@yahoo.com

Wonderfully illustrative, it tells the story impossibly well. The color pallet and posing are also perfect

Absolutely stunning! Portrays all the "magic" and beaty that mithological gods have! (or that I imagine them having)
