Icarus Revelation by echo-x Icarus Revelation by echo-x
This is my latest personal piece. I did it mostly to show that, yes I can and do paint men very well. I just prefer to draw women. As always, I put WAY TOO much into this piece. The full size is 90 inches tall. Although the detailing is not as intricate, I'm quite proud of my play on the neo-classic forms and grid-structure. The more you look at him and the more you know about art - the more you will see in him. That's my specialty. Enjoy.

Thank you. I do sell prints - just not through DeviantArt.

I sell prints and giclees:

Or you can catch me at any one of a dozen conventions this year including DragonCon and GenCon.

:)

This is a gorgeous piece, perfect art nouveau! I really like the way you did the typology at the bottom and the wings are perfect. Colors are delicious and rich!

Thank you. I think this is my best merging of Art Nouveau with Neo Classicism to date.

Utterly mesmerizing. This would be so incredible to see on the wall of a noir coffee house.

Thank you. Did you see my piece titled "Goddess of Coffee" yet? It's mostly red, with a large headdress.

Oh mai :D I'm always a sucker for classical type men. I love the flow of his form and how you made his little drape flow around his leg. Its a marriage of my two favs.. Classical and Nouveau :D Beautiful :D

Thank you for recognizing the Neo-Classic influences. Most only see the Art Nouveu.

This piece is such a wonderful ensemble that I would really encourage you to upload a bigger full view of it! SO many delicious details that I'd like to get my eyes into better.
The whole atmosphere in this image is simply gorgeus - Icarus' pose is grand, and I do love seeing such knowledge of anatomy and the feeling of roughness in his muscles, the bulkiness of his body. The feathers hold such a soft and smooth contrast to his strong male body, and the colours you have chosen work perfectly together. This could be one magnificent poster! Gorgeus work and instant fav!

Very nice! It's so detailed and the muscles look so good and the colours are beautiful!
Also a very interesting interpretation of Icarus :D
(I don't know if you've read the original myth, but he was actually a little boy. well I guess that's artistic freedom ;))

There are also plenty of variations of the David, ranging from him as an adolescent to a fully grown and well-muscled man.

This is beautiful! I love all the little details you included, like the wax running down his shoulders. The colors are so warm and bright, it really gives the idea of scorching sunlight. Excellent job!
