apollo at night

Sci fi/Fantasy image by

This started as two separate projects. One was just a sketch of a guy I did for art class. He personifies for me what greek gods are supposed to look like. In particular this sketch screamed to me the look of the sun god Apollo. The rest of it started as a an internet interface. I was going for an an art nouveaux (or however you spell it), urban, nighttime feel. One day it occurred to me that they were so opposite they might work together. You know... realistic/abstract, day/night, pastoral/urban, monochromatic/brightly colored, etc. I stuck them together and then played some more. I think I'm exploring the idea of what the sun does at night, but I'm not sure. I'll shut up now and let you draw your own conclusions. Feel free to let me know if you figure it out.
