12 Olympians

0 min read
Well, i just finished uploading the first 9 of the 12 Olympians that I've been working on this summer.  Its a completely independent project, though it is counting towards school credit since the illustration class I took while abroad in Italy wasn't enough work for me to get credit with MICA.  I started them when I was in Florence, but I've colored them all since I've been home (basically at a rate of one every day, which is pretty draining when you work full time as well).  I still have Hera, Aphrodite, and Ares to finish, so expect to see those in the next week or so.

Hi, my name is Rubén. I´m from Spain. I have seen your gallery and really like it. I´m doing a blog about Art History and videogames, movies, etc. In this blog  I try to teach as the should mythological characters be represented according with the classics. I would like to exhibit some of your artworks in my blog to support my theories about the art history.



All the art works that I use would link to your website.


Thanks about it and i wait your answer. Sorry for my english.

Love your work, amazing job
Attention! This user is a thief, trying to sell original work created six years ago by user ~TaekwondoNJ and he is arrogantly claiming the work belongs to him. Please help us protect the real artist by reporting the stolen reposts of "Zeus" and "Poseidon". Make sure to link back to the originals in ~TaekwondoNJ's gallery, found here [link] and here [link] . I truly hope you'll help try and put some morality back into the way this site works.
Dude i love what you make.
Truely inspirational.
~Matanuiwillpwnyou is stealing your art and selling them as prints! He must be stopped!
not anymore, i removed them
