Bellerophon and Pegasus at King Proteus' palace by suburbanbeatnik Bellerophon and Pegasus at King Proteus' palace by suburbanbeatnik
This is the spread for pgs 8-9 in Compass Media's "Bellerophon and Pegasus."

Bellerophon grooms Pegasus as his patron, King Proteus, and his wife stroll by. Proteus' wife has her eye on Bellerophon, and Proteus notices. Naughty!

Seriously this painting was so difficult to paint, what with the ornate Greek costumes, the palace, the greenery, and Pegasus. A friend of mine commented that this was a children's picture book as imagined by David O. Selznick, which sounds about right. The only thing needed to make this more epic would be a legion of Spartans marching by.

Thank you! I really enjoyed painting her costume, though all that drapery was kind of tricky. But I wanted her outfit to look sophisticated and authentically Greek, and less of a cliche ancient femme fatale. I'm glad you like it. :)

Painting? What kind of paint did you use? It kind of reminds me of your colored pencil work. :D
