Prismacolor Marker test-out

I really tried to fix the smudging on the paper but it wouldn’t go away so now its gonna be there forever. But I just bought the Prismacolor 12 marker art set so I’m trying that out. The eye is an owl eye and the picture I got it from really was that color. The head in the bottom corner is Tara (one of my characters). And the wolf head I copied from Fukari. Just thought I’d give her credit.

Sketch dump #9

These pictures are pretty self-explanatory. There is a cat face, a Dia de los Muertos man, a D.d.l.M. Coyote, and a sketch of Christina Aguilera from the lyrics video “Ain’t no other man”. Oh yeah, and there’s a word thingie in the corner for new years.

Sketch dump #8

The two women are my take on some possible Dia de los Muertos story characters. They each have a symbol. One is the rose with spiderwebs and the other is the fancy cross.  Then there is a little cartoon of my dog. The other sketches are copies of Fukari’s work. Sorry for the super smudgy paper. My normal scanner broke and the other one picks up everything on the paper, not just the lines.

Western Civilization lesson 35

Here is my paper on the play “Medea” and what we can learn from it about Greek’s attitude towards women and foreigners.

We can learn oodles from the Greek play “Medea” about the Greeks’ attitudes towards foreigners and women. Both were outcasts, though in different ways. The play illustrates this in a hellish red spotlight with sparklers and smoke. In “Medea,” her husband abandoned her and their children to make a better name for himself, showing how women were easily dispensable in Greek society. As well as being the compost of the ancient word, women had the added “blessing” of being denied a right in politics, employment, money management, or any matters of significance outside of home. Foreigners were not seen in a much better light. They, too, were unable to vote, and although foreign men were granted more rights than women outside of home (for instance the ability to earn their own living as free men), they were considered shameful to marry and despised by their Greek neighbors. Medea demonstrated the result of all of the pent up fury and sorrow brought upon her from her class as a woman. Hurtling headlong into a rage of insanity, she murdered everyone involved in her husband’s flight. Because the playwright thoroughly understood Greek biases against women and foreigners, in “Medea” he opened a window for us to really learn about Greek culture.

There is a very serious question I would like all of you to ask yourselves. How many boards would the mongols hoard if the mongol hoards got bored?
