Toward the Bacchanalia by A3ulez Toward the Bacchanalia by A3ulez
Euripides' Bacchae is my all time favorite play o.o

It's about Dionysus getting revenge by driving the entire city of Thebes mad because they refused to worship him. This particular scene is when he finally drives the king, Pentheus, mad, has him dress as a woman, and ends up later gettin ghim ripped apart by his mother, Agave.

Enjoy =)

I tried to stick close to the descriptions, but the thyrsus is in the wrong hand, and a few other mistakes, but bah. I may color this... Oh, and I tried to make Pentheus look insane/drunk, so gimme a break ;)

That's usually how it works. I was the only one in high school English who professed a liking of The Old Man and the Sea. Same with The Jungle, though with that one, I only liked the gory parts, so it doesn't count as much.

Hmm, I've never read either, but I hear bad things, hehe. I did see the movie for The Old Man and the Sea, and I enjoyed it for the most part, though it was a bit depressing. The symbology was also very hard to grasp as a movie, and I'm not sure how the story would have been interesting as a book. All the same, it's good to know someone liked it, or I would be confused as to why so many have to read it ;)

Both books are rather depressing, actually. I probably wouldn't have read either if they hadn't been on my reading list for school. As for the symbolism in The Old Man and the Sea, I didn't even notice it until my English teacher forced a unit about it upon us. I think you have to know a bit about Hemingway himself before you completely understand it, too...but I can't remember.

Hah! I love it ^^ Pentheus looks like one of my cousins so this makes the picture all the better! To his doom...mwahaha! Wonderful sturdy lines as always and I love the all little details on both of them. =)

Thanks =) The regular pencil looks pretty good, but I did use the 'cutout' filter for the sturdy lines, actually ;) Thanks all the same ^^
