Olympic Legends

I didn't have a lot of time for this one this month as I'm doing a course at the moment. So instead of a drawing, I messed about with text and the olympics logo in Illustrator, and added a few textures in Photoshop to make it look less flat. Here's hoping that the legends on the Irish team bring back some medals!

I'm Ron Burgundy?

Finally, I get around to doing a blog post. Obviously this is for the legends theme. :P  Didn't draw any of it, but instead I built up the painting through a series of bleeding effects.

This is possibly a more serious option with ChĂșchulainn.  Some light water colour and Chinese ink in a very Chinese style.

Icarus - Legend

Not entirely sure if Icarus would be considered a legend but his story was always one that stood out for me.  Maybe it was the illustrations in the book I had growing up (Childcraft encyclopaedias if anyone's wondering :D), or maybe because I just thought if I was given a pair of wings I wouldn't be so bloody stupid haha.  Anyway, here it is.

July Theme - Legend

I think it's my turn this month to come up with the theme. I'm going to go with "legend". Looking forward to seeing everyone's posts!
