Amazing piece. I love the emotion it evokes.
Is this based on an actual god? It has quite a bit of this "ancient statue" appearance (if you know what I'm talking about... )
It's not based on any actual god, no. But it was inspired by the estheticals (is that a word?) and by styles wich in themselves probably are inspired. And so on... Anyway, I think the arrows and sharp "symbols" make it look greec. He holds like an upside-down mars-symbol. If you get anything out of my ramblings... I think I know what you mean, and I'm fascinated because it just turned out like that and doesn't look like anything else I've drawn.
That is even more impressive...drawings that just turn out to be something are mostly the best ones. Usually I'm doing research on actual mythology and then use the inspiration from that for anything else, but taking the style of ancient statues and something amazing turns out...that's impressive.
this looks like it should be on a tarot card
I love the design! It's pretty cool, very ethereal : )
