:bulletblue:Ares the Greek god
"He's the Greek god of war and battle and the instigator of violence, a son of Zeus and Hera. Because of his cruel and war-like nature he was despised by all the gos, even his own father disliked him. Ares could be bloody, merciless, fearful, and cowardly possessed no moral attributes. He was, however, unable to withstand the loveliness of Aphrodite, who subsequently became his consort."
~~~Obtained from www.pantheon.org/articles/a/ares/html

:bulletred:Art class
-Lineart link: [link]

Lately IB and AP classes are driving me nuts, due to the teacher and her absurd method of rushing us and wasting our times with things that dont relate to our art projects...

My investigation on five and six have yet to be finished but I will upload them when I am done with them.

:bulletblack: What I used/About the picture:
-140 lb watercolor paper (for texture)
-Prang, Prisma, Crayola, and Artist Loft's colored pencils
-0.1 and 0.5 pigmentliners
-0.5 mechanical pencil
-about 2 and a half weeks //lots of hours. (on and off)


My OC Arian, serves well as a representation of the god Ares. They have a lot of common attributes and it was not intentional.
I'm quite proud with the outcome.
Finished it a week ago though.

The creature in the back is a vulture and wolf mix. It has the head of a vulture but instead of being completely feathered, it has the wolf's fur pattern on it.
Creatures that were linked with Ares. (that I didnt want to draw seperately)

Oh, gosh, thank you ;w;

Hm, It was an independent study, so I got to choose what I wanted to draw as long as it kept a uniting theme.
Maybe there will be something like this in college, possibly the final year?

Heh, besides, if you really wanted to draw mythology, you could if you wanted to. uvu

I do try but my new teacher forbade "any theme" artworks
So I was stuck doing art about future tech or the "universe"
As instructed by him. He even wanted us to make working inventions
in one of our classes (sighs)
It sucked.... so bad.

Hm.. That sounds horrible in certain aspects. Like physically working through mechanical errors and the such.
I could never do that, well not with a happy face on if forced to do it.

I even made... no persuaded him during our second
semester to make our own themes. And because of that
our grades went down (bah)

Oh, that's so unreasonable. Mostly likely done on purpose.
What theme did you choose, if I may ask

Anthromorphs, I think is what you call those
who are animals turned humanoid

As much as I wanted to do fantasy
I thought I should at least explore
that more... it turned out fun
but a bust when my grade went down

Oh, Anthromorphs are fun to draw and create~
How unfortunate, though I don't think that's the proper word. I bet your creations were worthy of a high grade.
