Scratchboard. My interpretation of the Greek myth.
Thanks Ihsan, I appreciate your thoughtful comments and kind words. Yes, the original is black and white and the detail was color in Photoshop.
Hey Kort, this is great I just saw the detail and had to comment on this too! Did you colour the detail digitally? I really like what you've done here, there's immense detail and it's a very striking composition, awesome. The near feather is a great touch also, and I REALLY think what you wrote in reply to the last comment should be copied and pasted as the comment for this great work
Thanks! I did want to capture the triumph of the human spirit. Even though he is doomed to failure, he strives ever higher.
A version of this image impressed an owner of a playwriting company and he's using it for his logo. It's not up yet, but it will be at www.icarusplays.com.
Wow...this is really powerful. I love the way you've captured the feeling of both rising and hopelessly falling - and the bleakness.
