definitely the second one
seriously, we just talked about the Aegean in my art history class and this sounds like a cool one,
lots of room for interpretation.
That would be the one.

I'll return for this one. =D
ooh, i cant decide, the living minos or the underworld judge of the dead minos.
nice project again, it'll be interesting to see which minos, people decide to do,
nice start jessi, i like the sitting version best so far, has a more kingly feel to it, btw, which version you going for, the historical or underworld version?
Great topic! I'll have a crack at it again this week I think.

I like this topic, I'm going with the 'judge of the dead' version. Here's my sketch, he's sort of a mix of Sumerian and Greek (and also a hundred feet tall) .
thought id post this early this week, not last minute again, lol.
Anyway here my rough rough so far, probably going to keep him historicle minos, also concidering doing it black and white, im thinking the strong lighting and deep shadows would be very suitable this kind of image.
Tear'm up with comments. I'm going to bed. =P
Here's a quick WIP, not sure if I'll continue with him or not. Needs more 'drama'.
Always strive for perfection. You will never achieve it, but will learn so much more in the striving.
Hi everyone this is my first time entering a COW just thought I'd say hello really
like the topics/concepts you come up with.
Just wondering, is it the mythical Minos who became a "Judge of Death" and whos wife gave birth to the minotaur? Or is it the real king Minos who existed?

I'm assuming it's the "judge of death/lord of the underworld" one right? it would be pretty boring otherwise
This looks like a great challenge..
This is my first time, though. And I'm still pretty new at wacom'ing stuff.
i dont think it realy matters which one it is, their basicly the same, both were kings, both came of anchient crete, both dressed the same clothes, both were concidered blood firsty rulers, the only main difference in their appearance is if you do the god version living in hell, you add a snake. Oh and maybe a different background, but even that can be done in a way to suit both worlds. Its not the character thats important, but how you portray that character which makes it interesting.
He's pretty much the same guy, just at different points in his story he does certain things.... run with the one you like.
Daestwen, welcome back! I've missed you
davidherd - muchas gracias, and an asspat right back at you. I like your beginning, I want to see more. Also, welcome to CHOW.
NARobles - I *am* excited... he has such an awesome story, as I'm sure you're aware. Good start, by the way, he looks all flowy... and kind of weighted down with a burden. I know it's a sketch, but watch how much he's leaning to the left there. If you want a dynamic post, punch it up, if not, straighten him out so he won't fall over. And paint! Now!
Mmm... more drawing... I think I'll get on the painting myself, now. No time to waste, LMS3 is on...

oboi, my first piece on the forum, and it will be for this....jus' no making fun of me...lol (have at it).
JessiBean Sorrysorry! I got siderailed by homework. But I love history, so I'm totally in on this one.
Though, all my research so far has convinced me of how badly I want to draw Minoan *girls*...
