Icarus by driftwoodwolf Icarus by driftwoodwolf
I drew the lines for this several years ago, no kidding. I just never got around to coloring it.

My interpretation of Icarus.

Patterns/textures come from maxyvert, Jungshan, and some other places online.

Pencil, Photoshop.

Yes, this is what I was looking for. A modern version of early gothic artwork. Well done!

No, I'm being serious. I really wish there were more of this type of artwork on here.

I did have plans for another picture in this style, but it might be a while before I get around to finishing it :'D

The Legend of Icarus. Now this would make the most beautiful mosiac-tiled wall-art or even a stained-glass window. It also reminds me of a song I heard years ago,cannot translate it right now but the words for some are... Icarus, thought he could and you lost your proud wings....

Ideas and thoughts can enrich people's thinking and sometimes people don't really know what other people think, when you share thoughts people can get inspired...

A tragic, but one of my favorite Greek myths! I love the color scheme on this one and the style too!

Your 3D/realism paintings are really good but I think your occasional 2D ones are killer

Thanks! I like the flat stylized look too, if only digital lines weren't so tedious... even this one's just a pencil scan ;A;

I really need to get back into the traditional groove :eager:
