First I just wanted to paint a portrait of Odysseus from my original Greek myth series. But in a different style. Mainly as a learning experience. But later I could not resist to take the portrait and make a full body illustration when he is sailing home. I am ok with the portrait painting but not so with the bigger Illustration. But I learned a lot and had fun. :) Below you have for both pictures some process pics. Hope you like it.
