Fantasy equal: Muse
I have great admiration for artists and the wondrous pieces they are able to conjure up by means of a creative, imaginative mind and the tools of his/her trade. Nowadays there are a broad range of materials one can use. I cannot pinpoint a personal favourite. Products of each type of material have its charm.
A raw sketch of a rugged man beats its digital equivalent and a superhero in a sleek costume is harder to perfect by means of paint than with a digital tool. Nowadays most comics are created with digital imagery, since it provides one with great flexibility in terms of reverting mistakes and the multitude of alterations you are able to make by means of a few simple clicks. I can change the photos I find on the net to black and white in two ticks, for example. With powerful software, one is able to do amazing things, especially if you have amazing material to work with in the first place :).
The fantasy equivalent for this collection is an obvious one; the ever inspiring muses. The nine muses mostly inspired poets, actors and creative writers, yet I believe they stirred creativity in artists of other kinds as well.
This collection is the only one in full colour. These artists have spent more time and effort as a single person creating their artwork than a photography team would during a photo shoot. So these images retain their carefully thought out colour schemes. Enjoy!
“In Greek mythology, poetry, and literature are the goddesses or spirits who inspire the creation of literature and the arts. They were considered the source of the knowledge, related orally for centuries in the ancient culture that was contained in poetic lyrics and myths.”
