Bringing Myth to Life by KerriAitken Bringing Myth to Life by KerriAitken
Well, I thought I'd give this contest a try.

I believe mythology and art go hand in hand. Sure, fantastic oral and written traditions exist, but no other medium can bring the imaginary to life like the visual arts. Throughout time, myths have inspired art and have added to our understanding of cultures around the world. So here is a little tribute to the way art brings myth to life!

This one is great! I like the less-saturated color pallet, and the composition is perfectly dynamic and cohesive. Also, you are one of the few people that seem to have a solid, mature concept behind your work, which I respect.

I hope you like mine as well. I worked very hard on it, and I hope to AT LEAST make the top 100, but I fear being new to the site, I will not be able to transcend the popularity contest and get enough votes... Here is my entry:

You had a brilliant idea :) I really like the wave of the tint when it forms the creature and the depth you gave to the drawing. Really cool and great colour combination!

Absolutely love it! And I completely agree with your statement. Where would art be without mythology? I think its important to study the old before we create the new. Anywho-- I love the colors you used for the monsters, but I'm not sure how I feel about the color of the t-shirt (its too bad if thats the only color available..). I feel like a plain white tee would suite it better. Or maybe black? I'm just not a big fan of gray... lol Too in-the-middleish.

Grey probably wouldn't be my first choice either if I could pick any color I wanted, but out of the options given (red, purple, navy, black, or grey), grey was the only one I thought looked good. Since it's neutral it's the only one that didn't really clash with the color scheme. I tried black, but it didn't really look great considering the color of the line work, which I like as it is.

Hm. Not many options... But I understand, and you do what you can. It would be unfortunate to lose that beautiful line work. D:
