Default April, 2011: The Ferryman

Hi all,

From wikipedia:

In Greek mythology, Charon or Kharon (English pronunciation:*/ˈkɛərɒn/, /ˈkɛərən/; Greek Χάρων) is the ferryman of Hades who carries souls of the newly deceased across the rivers Styx and Acheron that divided the world of the living from the world of the dead. A coin to pay Charon for passage, usually an obolus or danake, was sometimes placed in or on the mouth of a dead person.[1] Some authors say that those who could not pay the fee, or those whose bodies were left unburied, had to wander the shores for one hundred years. In the catabasis mytheme, heroes such as Heracles, Orpheus, Aeneas, Dionysus and Psyche journey to the underworld and return, still alive, conveyed by the boat of Charon.

Good Luck!

edit: winners announced!

Exclamation Strange Phenomenon Occurs

This is strange for me, this phenomenon... I mean, Alex post the 2D competition first; before they (the judges) announce the winners of previous month.

But, hell with it. I dont have enough spare time to the previous contest theme, but... I'll try to make up for it to this month theme. I've been watching Clash of The Titan & there is a ferryman too.

Good luck, people.

Default Ah Greek Mythology

Finally I can go to the roots of my culture and create a mythological painting. Being Greek I might work even harder to make something unbelievable!!!!

So this has to be Kharon, giving rides to rotting flesh and all, or any man in any ferry?

Default Entry! I did this one a while back!

" There Chairon stands, who rules the dreary coast -
A sordid god: down from his hairy chin
A length of beard descends, uncombed, unclean;
His eyes, like hollow furnaces on fire;
A girdle, foul with grease, binds his obscene attire. "

Here there folks, since compy isn't currently on fire or in several small bits I am actually going to be able to do a 2d entry this time! Here's the WIP , unlike my maquettes i'll probably only update this once it's finished.. I move too quickly in photoshop to really keep track. - Lane
