Minotaur - a cursed creature, born to the wife of the Creatan king Minos, sired by Poseidon's own white bull. Reviled by the royal family, hated and feared by all people, the baby was kept alive as a bestial reminder of the queen's infidelity. Imprisoned in shame, hidden in Daedalus's Labyrinth, he is forever alone in the dark and silent stone corridors. The terrified servants feed him through a trapdoor by pushing fodder in with a long pole, but they often neglect their duties, and he has learned to kill and eat any creature he catches in the dark. He is quite insane by now, I'm afraid... (sketched in Painter7, with Wacom tablet)(will paint someday)

Aww, the poor minotaur...

You did an amazing job of portraying a normally hated mythological creature in a sympathetic light. I really like this pic.

Down on his knees, with his hands like that, it looks like he's praying.

Yeah, I always thought it was kinda unfair and cruel what they did to the minotaur...
You've portrayed him in quite a touching way... *sniffs* he looks so lonely and cold and miserable... and even insane... like the description said...great job with this 2
