Muse by ADDICT
Muse by ADDICT


Another great drawing murdered by my scanner. DD:

A Grecian muse drawn for a Mythology contest. A muse serves as an inspiration of the arts- musical, oratory, written, theatrical, etc.

I didn't intend her to be anyone specific of the nine canonical muses, but she did fit the description of Terpsichore coincidentally... which saved my butt. XD

According to <strike>unreliable</strike> Wikipedia:

In Greek mythology Terpsichore was one of the nine Muses, ruling over dance and the dramatic chorus. She lends her name to the word "terpsichorean" which means "of or relating to dance". She is usually depicted sitting down, holding a lyre, accompanying with her music to the dancers' choirs.

You have no idea how long this took me and how many times I had to repeat drawing this... >_<

My brother insisted that the legs were all messed up... I don't even know why I listened to him, but I guess I'm glad I did.

And the research. Oh the research!!! X_x Ionic, Doric, Corinthian Grecian columns, grapevines, and Grecian lyres....
For the lyre I had to take this 2D monotone illustration and make it 3D(and at the same time make it accurate) myself... So I took some artistic license for the colors of the lyre... ^^;

Anyway, the background was just that of a few Grecian themes thrown together, so sorry if it's weird... I don't understand myself if she's indoors or outdoors. Maybe the setting is an indoor garden? rofl

Despite the many flaws of this piece, I feel that I would like it for a very long time. :nod:


By the way, I used colored pencils, watercolor pencils, pen and chalk on this one.
