Atalanta For tonight’s #inktober pic, I went back to an old one: the first pic I did for a friend’s series of books about Greek myths. The original pic had all the Argonauts, and since then I kind of liked how Atalanta’s design turned out. Well, it is finally due, and lo’ and behold! Atalanta
The Argonauts WIP Decided to color this one among the greek myth pics, so here’s the base colors.
Look, Jason, you jerkwad. This woman betrayed her father for you, she left her homeland for you, some say she killed her brother for you.

The sketches for the rest of the Argonauts illustrations: * Jason’s trial: or Extreme Pyroferrotaurical Farming. * Jason and Medea Get the Golden Fleece: or The Advantages of Bringing a 16th-Level Wizard to Your 10th-Level Campaign. * Talos, the Cretan Automaton: or Peloponese Rim = Talos Havoc!
The Argonauts (Final!) All done and inked. I do kind of want to do more Atalanta; I liked how her design turned out.
