The Fall of Icarus by Ecthelian The Fall of Icarus by Ecthelian
"Daedalus told his beloved son exactly where to fly:

halfway between the sun and the water, no higher and lower.

But Icarus was a dreamer. He ignored those warnings.
He flew too close to the sun, and the waxed wings tragically melted. Icarus plunged into the sea...and that's how he ended his life


TwT A final project illustration for World Mythology class. Icarus died because his own ignorance...or maybe desire (it depends on each person's view, I guess)...it's true. But is that because the brightness of the sun was too tempting for him? I'm just curious >D

Tools: Painter and Photoshop

Gosh, I really like how Icarus's right arm is completely in shadow. Well done.

Awesome! I was planning to draw this, but you beat me to it - and did a better job than I could ever do, that's for sure.
