Continuing the mythology theme with Prometheus:

Prometheus 25-5-13

Prometheus, according to legend, stole the fire of the Gods. His punishment was to be held in restraints and have his liver (which would regenerate day by day due to his immortality) eaten in perpetuity by a golden eagle. Unlike the image of Sisyphus it was a necessity to include a couple of highlight lines for additional clarity; it was a challenge to get the posture right as well but I think overall it’s a decent rendering. If nothing else I’ve also come to learn  that Prometheus’ name means ‘fore-thinker’ (and that he had a brother, Epithemeus, whose name means ‘after-thinker’); it’s nice when these drawings lead to new nuggets of information.
