Prometheus's Martyrdom by MischievousMartian Prometheus's Martyrdom by MischievousMartian
"Why should I stop with just your liver?"


Time: about 3 days all in all, stopped after the second day, lost interest on piece for months. Today raced through remaining parts for about 12 hours, cause if I had stopped I knew it would take another month to pick up where I left off.
Ref: my right foot.
Music: Glee OST, HALO OST. Good stuff.
Mood: shitty when starting first time months ago, shitty when first returning to this thing, not so shitty now.

Wiki Prometheus if you had no clue who he is.
It's supposed to be dark/poorly-lit.
Wings are eeeeeeeevil.
Might post step-by-step sometime in the future.
It's 7AM here.

DONE. CAN FINALLY SLEEP.

This is sooo fucking awesome, the angle, the grungy darkness, the detail, the colours, everything is just gorgeous. Wings ARE evil but this was worth it!

Zeus an asshole!! Prometheus is like a Jesus. He loved us so much that he gave us fire.

(forget reality for a sec, forget that Prometheus was saved by Heracles and answer my question below)

I am going to Kaukasus to find, release and save Prometheus, who comes with me!? Not gonna lie to ya, it might get ugly!

Poor guy...(Spoiler alert) eventually he get's freed by the greatist hero of greek mythology Hercules. I guess it's saying that no matter how big we get we should remember our roots.
