Art gig sketches After many months, my friend is up to the third volume of his Greek mythology books, this time… Monsters and the monstrous. I have to do 30 of these, but I’ll first finish up with all the sketches for my friend to approve before I set down any digital ink and put

Artemis and Apollo for my friend’s book project. I think I want to color them later to upload in my dA account.

A friend is writing a small book about Greek myths and asked me to provide illustrations. These are the rough concept drafts for Chapter 1: The Gods.
