    Thor fights some random Giants because he doesn't like Giants. There is probably a backstory somewhere. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thor

    THIS TOOK ME FOUR DAYS. Seriously. I'm sure the pros are scoffing that I take pride in only managing this in such a short amount of time, but for me that's a huge accomplishment. Apparently ginormous amounts of deadline pressure are needed for me to do awesome things.

    Anyway, here's my gods:

    Gong-Gong (the dragon; he's the God of destructive floods) vs. Zhu-Rong (the man; he's the god of fire) for control of the heavenly throne. This is near the end of the battle, when the two of them fall from the heavens and plummet to Earth.

    Gong-Gong will eventually suffer a humiliating defeat, and in shame he will bash his head against the pillar that supports heaven, killing himself and tilting the sky in the process. This explains the movement of the sun, moon and stars, and why rivers in China flow southeast into the pacific.

    Origin: China

    bah, watching the clock tick closer to midnight all day. Serves me right for leaving it till last-minute.

    Here's my unfinished piece, done almost completely today It depicts Odin preparing to charge (to his doom) towards Fenrir (giant wolf) currently wreaking havok on Odin's army of fallen heroes. Norse mythology apparently, wiki'd it. I was gonna go for a masque-esque epic rendition of Ragnarok, but time didn't allow

    Odin Vs Fenrir


    Nice timing, straight after bumskee *dies*

    Hun Pik Tok vs Spanish Legion (and a Sorceror)

    Mayan God - Hun Pik Tok of the 8000 Stone Knives.
    (my mini story is in the image). There isn't much info on this god rather than he is a god of war.



    Nice work people!

    Posiedon

    Almost gave up on this one, but the fine entries in here gave me the motivation I needed. Yet another Posiedon. This was a bit out of the box for me. It was a good learning process. Fine entries everyone.

    Icon The Moerae

    WATCH YOUR LIFE THREAD!



    The Moerae (a.k.a. Moirai, Fates, Parcae, Norns)
    From left to right: Lachesis, who measures the length of the life thread; Atropos, who cuts it; and Clotho, who spins it (or doesn't).
    It was said that NO ONE, NOT EVEN THE GODS, COULD ESCAPE THEIR FATE!
    Source: Greek religion and mythology
    Tools: Adobe Illustrator, plus Photoshop post processing

    The Situation:
    Let’s imagine that each cultural or religious tradition is a separate “System” with its own rules and rulers.
    Greek System is getting too small for Moeraes, and they decide to reach out and gain control over all other Systems. Now they want to spin, measure and cut threads of life of all living creatures – Gods or humans alike. Of course, Gods of other traditions will fight for their territory, but Moeraes are ready for the challenge.
    Bring it on!!

    Thor (Norse Mythology) fighting Sekhmet (Egyptian). Thor rode in a chariot pulled by two goats so that's why that's in there. I always loved that Thor was a protagonist but he started many of the fights he got into. So that brought about the idea for the illustration.

    Maui Taming the Sun

    Hey guys.
    First time up in TD. Here's the pic:

    Its the Maori Myth of Maui taming the sun.
    The tale goes that Te Ra (the sun god), moved too fast across the sky and the days were too short. Maui (a demigod) decided to teach the sun a lesson, so with his warriors they waited at the mouth of the cave the sun rose from each morning. With flax ropes his warriors held the sun down, while Maui leapt onto him and beat him with a magical jawbone axe. That is why the days are now so long.

    Learnt heaps from doing it, though of course coulda used more time. Check out my sketchbook thread to see the mundane perspective I started out with.

    Thanks heaps to everyone who helped me with critiques

    Krishna fighting Demons

    I did this peace, within 2 days more or less, thats allso why it isn't 100% finnished. Anyhow..

    Krishna, the Hindu God is seen as the Supreme Person and the highest God, he is the origin of all other incarnations. Lived a life as a heroic warrior and teacher.

    Here he is fighting some of he's demons and liberating their essense.
    Sri Krishna is often described as the 'Lotus-Eyed One'. Its unfolding petals suggest the expansion of the soul.

    Bishamonten vs. Ares Called forth by natives, in the form they are most often depicted in local arts. They thus layeth a smack-down on each other in a round of 'My God of War is Better than Your God of War.'

    Vulcan vs. Mars - Roman Mythology


    Probably a result of Mars fooling around with Vulcan's wife. They never actually fought but it seems like tensions were high. Anyways, Mars is seen here preparing himself for the onslaught to come.

    Was fun, even though my computer froze down on me halfway through my first shot at it that'll teach me to save my files. Maybe.

    This is Perun versus Veles.
    Perun is the Slavic God of Lightning and War who lives in a great oak tree. Veles is the God of the Underworld and has a pet serpent.

    so yeah I suck.


    here is my poopy unfinished entry. I was rooting for you anyways, Rich.


    Sekhmet - Egyptian Goddess of War.
    The goddess Sekhmet was associated with war and retribution and represented the destructive force of the sun. She was said to use arrows to pierce her enemies with fire, her breath being the hot desert wind as her body took on the glare of the midday sun.

    so its a few hours late and wont probably count, but i had decided to scrap my original tryptich yesterday and start fresh. why? because im an idiot. it wasnt until the friendly 'coaxing' of my opponent a few hours ago that i was convinced to start painting! so, im just throwing this in here so his efforts dont go wasted! mabye half way there poo.

    god: Bragi, norse lord of the sky, and well known for his long white beard. Upon a chance meeting with Aegir, who fashionably wore a sidewinder mustache, the two got in a fit over which facecoat was better. The only fitting thing to do was declare war. So, like any good dieties, they got their minions to duke it out.

    Sorry guys and sorry koala.one you done good!!! i shoulda stuck with my original

    Chinese Mythology
    Monkey God vs
    Dragon God

    In the worlds before Monkey, Primal Chaos reigned. Heaven sought order. But the Phoenix can fly only when its feathers are grown. The four worlds formed again and yet again, as endless aeons wheeled and passed. Time and the pure essences of heaven, the moisture of the Earth, the powers of the sun and the moon worked upon a certain rock, old as creation. And it became magically fertile. That first egg was named "Thought". Tathagata Buddha, the Father Buddha, said, "With our thoughts we make the world". Elemental forces caused the egg to hatch. From it then came a stone monkey. The nature of Monkey was irrepressible...."
