Prometheus by DappleHack Prometheus by DappleHack
Prometheus was my favorite character of the Ancient Greek mythology (here's wikipedia article - [link] ) when I was about 10 or 12. I was fond of greek myths, read loads of literature about them. He was definitely the hero, most beloved by me then.

It's an entry to the :iconmordaunt:'s contest "Hero".

Watercolour monotype.

There's something truly magical here, the technique you use suits this perfectly. The myth of Prometheus is one of my favourites too ;)

I'm never sure whether I like the intricately painted parts or the swirling texture best in these - but here I think my favourite bit must be the colour palette :D

This is truly inspiring - I hope my ancient Greek project turns out as awesome as this ^^;

Very beautiful, Dapplehack. You have another lovely image here :) I am very impressed with the design and implementation of loose and tight areas and the shaping. Very beautiful colour, as well. I love this image. It speaks to me a great deal. This is one I would like to hang on my wall.
