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.
TL;DR

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!

I really wish I could put in to words just how this image makes me feel, but I fear I can't. It would just come out as dkghfldixshlkfjghf.

You're a fucking genius! Omg, this is beautiful, one of the most beautiful things I ever seen. I can only imagine how difficult it was to draw. Thank you for finishing it, sharing it, portraying one of my favorite myths, existing. :heart:
