Dude. Not 'rape'. More like 'kidnapping' or something.
Cool piece^^

This is one of my favorite Greek myths; you did a fantastic job with color harmony and the shadows. :)

Europa was rapted... or raped... itīs confusing because of one single word :P
but as far as I remember, Europa wasnīt raped at all... bah, there are different versions about the same myth

I ancient Greece rape did not mean what it means today. It ment abduction or kidnap. I hope that helps with the confusion, and dont worry I use to think the same. ;)

One of the things greek mythology has taught me:

Don't go flower picking.

You are confussing myths.

The birth of the minotaur has nothing to do with this or with Heracles´s jobs.

This is just Europe and Zeus.

Bulls are very important in mediterranean cultures and just keep appearing in myths ^^

I'd love to render a Nemean Lion fight! I've always been obsessed with that image. I'd like to make the lion more otherworldly and nastier than your average lion.

oooh, that sounds good. =] you'll probably capture him perfectly. Have you ever considered illustrating a book for someone? because if you did, that would make one awesome book. except i personally wouldn't learn or read anything because i'd be too absorbed by the pictures. =P
