First Image - Storyboarding Project

I've been a bit quiet on the happenings of my second project, partly through suffering a fair few panic attacks/crisis of confidence, and partly because the rough sketches were piling up very quickly and I didn't have time to scan them all in. Here is the first image, completely finished, and just awaiting the laying out of the final output. I'm extremely please with how this has turned out and very excited to see my final out come.



The story is a sequel to Peter and The Wolf, in which he leaves his grand father's home for a trip to the beach to visit his cousins, only to be confronted by a shadowed night dwelling demon.

Ceryneian Hind - Greek Beast Two. (Third Edit)

Third attempt. There was something that wasn't sitting quite right in the last version. I'm much happier with this version, though i think there is some final tweaking to be done..

Ceryneian Hind - Greek Beast Two. (Second Edit)

This is the second digital version of the Ceryneian Hind. A few things i've changed from the original, much happier with this version.

Ceryneian Hind - Greek Beast Two.

The Ceryneian Hind was sacred to Artemis, the chaste goddess of the hunt, animals and unmarried women. It had enormous golden antlers and hooves of bronze or brass. It was also said that it could outrun an arrow in flight. Its capture was one of the 12 labours of Hercules.

It is such a rich story as there are many different accounts of whether or not Hercules actually captured the beast, some saying that he caught it while is slept and others say that he encountered Artemis and she told everyone that he completed his task even though he had not.

This is my depiction of the Ceryneian Hind, a regal, beautiful creature. I will print this in lino onto gold paper to get the full effect of the gold colour. I even went as far as to make my own Herring Bone photoshop brush for the trees, which i'm extremely pleased with. (Message me if you want the brush)
