Artemis Moon

Another assignment from my Figure Illustration 1 course this semester - finally scanned in! (It's too beg for an average scanner, at about 14x17 inches) This particular assignment had three main requirements. 1) it had to depict a Greek myth of our choice. 2) it had to be done traditionally, preferably in part with acrylics, and 3) while photo realism was not required, we did absolutely have to use photographic reference.

I also apparently have something for moons in the backgrounds of images for this class. This was the first of two. No idea why.

At any rate, the lovely *Tasastock of Deviantart was gracious enough to allow me to use one of her images ([link]) as reference for Artemis here - my Greek Goddess of choice - Goddess of the Hunt. Do check out her wonderful stock gallery if you get the chance!

Acrylics, Prismacolor Colored Pencils, Illustration board.

Cheers,
♥Mel
