Sketchbook Sneak Peek: More Gigantes

Today's Sketchbook Sneak Peek sampler is a collection of facial studies of Gigantes, because I dearly love drawing Gigantes so...


  1. Cool. Just wondering: I'm writing a storybook about Athena, and according to my reference books, Athena got her aegis from Pallas' skin and her epiphet from Pallas' name, and there were pretty much 10 Pallases in mythology. So quick question: WHICH PALLAS DID ATHENA GET ALL THAT STUFF FROM? (On all mythological disputes except for this one I have my own area, so for this one I might as well steal yours)

  2. Funny you should ask this, Jakob-- In Athena: Grey Eyed Goddess, one of my themes is the duality (multiplicity?) of myth, and I include both stories as to how Athena got her Pallas, and I also tell a few versions of how she got the Aegis.
