Ten Suns

Sci fi/Fantasy image by

fall, 2004, photoshop. I wanted a quick project. I learned of the celestial Archer Yi and how he shot down nine of the ten suns in the Chinese Art History class I was in at the time. Depicted in art, the suns were often shown as crows within fiery orbs, and they would sleep on this special tree at night (one extremely ancient burial banner in particular inspired this). It's my own take. Not intended to accurately represent the story, nor to be especially Chinese. I just felt like drawing it. I half finished it, then it sat for a while, and I sloppily/lazily finished it eventually, so some parts put me to shame :P
