Character Design - Greek Myths by spiritwolf77 Character Design - Greek Myths by spiritwolf77
This is the compilation of what I've been doing in Character Design class this year. The objective was to illustrate a set of characters based on the theme (this year it was Greek myths) using influences from the style of a particular professional artist.

The artist I chose was Jackson Publick (creator of The Venture Brothers). I'm not sure how effectively I captured his style, but I had fun with these nonetheless. This was really the first time I've ever done a substantial amount of cartoon human art so it was quite a challenge for me.

From left to right: Cerberus, Telemachus, Odysseus, Athena, Tiresias, and the Chimera.

I hope this sounds alright but it seems more Disney-ish to me. But I do see hints of The Venture Brothers style in there. Great job nonetheless! =)

I really like your art style, not to mention that I love the Odyssey, but why is Telemachus such a wimp?

Sorry for the very delayed reply, I have actually moved to a new account: :iconsaitenyo: and don't check my messages on this one anymore.

From what I recall, I drew him like that because he is a bit of a wimp in the story. He can't get rid of all the suitors, and it's not until his father finally comes back that he seems to show some true incentive.
