Odyssey Comic Book IX Part I by zara-leventhal Odyssey Comic Book IX Part I by zara-leventhal
:icondonotuseplz::iconmyartplz:

Awards


This work (part 1 and part 2) received an Honorable Mention from The Scholastic Art & Writing Awards of 2013 and Casita Maria Center for Arts and Education.

:heart:

Part of my European Literature project.
We are supposed to take one book from The Odyssey translated by Robert Fagles, and make into some kinda of pop culture.
Also, I have some quotes and some paraphrases from the translation by Robert Fagles, but I also included my own versions of stuff. :D


This took forever, I think maybe 3~5 hours? Quite a lot of time.

Part II



Here's an extra large detail pic:



Edit, added a texture to make it look more interesting!

WAAAAAAAAAIIIIIIIT.... didn't he got the Cyclops' cave second, after the Island of the Lotus Eaters... etc

Also, "Circe and Calypso held him back a bit?" Nice save there, but we all know that they really did!

yea he got there after the lotus eaters, but i didn't feel like putting them in lol!! and i didn't "save", odysseus pretty much said that, i just changed the words a bit.
"True enough, Calypso the lustrous goddess tried to hold me back [...] So did Circe, holding me just as warmly in her halls" (IX. 33-36).

HA. GOTCHA RUOCHEN. ;)

plus the draft is due tuesday and i'm really busy so I had to shortcut a bit~ i still have pg II coming!

I read the Odyssey last year for English, it's quite a good book for being so dang hard to read sometimes.

You made the cyclops look super cute xD I'm not sure if thats what you were going for, but it looks good!

LOL true dat! I kinda enjoyed it, some parts went slowly though XD

Haha thank you! I'm just very bad at making things look not cute XD In Part II, he gets blinded, but it's all "censored" and he wears a bandaid over his eye :D
