Great pick, Dan McDaid! :)

I didn't have much time this week as I hoped but I wanted stillt o post something before the week is up cause I haven't missed a week since the start and didn't want to break the pace ;)
Hope you guys dig my take on Hercules, even if it's more a concept illo rather than a finished one.

EDIT: Just update the post with a widescreen version, closer to what originally had in mind for the final illo.

Cheers,
Francesco

HA! Yeah, after the dead birds, we don't need this too ;)
Thank you, Mike & Evan :) It was a quickie (you can still see the rough/layout lines underneath) but hey, it's in and that's what matters, right? :)

Cheers,
Francesco

Not to raise any eyebrows as I am very happily married to my beautiful and amazing wife, but a quickie by you, Kind Sir, is quite a treat.

Nice! I thought about doing his fight with the Hydra as well but in order to be mythologically accurate I would have had to include his nephew Iolaus in the scene.

I hope you will someday find the time to finish this cause it's an awesome start.

The nephew is in here, just off-screen and clapping the hands while saying "Job well done, Uncle Herc! ;)
Thank you, Ron :)

Cheers,
