Mares Of Diomedes by Pertheseus Mares Of Diomedes by Pertheseus
This was a WIP o a CD cover for a Metal band back in Tampa- There name was going to be Mares of Diomedes but it was apparently changed so ill play with the new name later -

The band name was obviously going on the bottom of the image

As for now they told me they had a track titled Mares of Diomedes so they still might use this for shirts and shit -

This is real different from my typical shit its alot of painting - compositing images - photo manipulation hand tweaking - everything i could think of to make t -It was fun to do as well

I don't think so. It might be because people don't usually ride stallions, due to the fact that they are VERY hard to control (meaning they're much more likely to go nuts and end up killing someone).
Also, the Mares of Diomedes were actual figures in Greek myth.
These four horses were man-eating demons. The hero Heracles (also called "Hercules") was once tasked with taming them / cleaning their stables.
It has been said that the rowdy steed of Alexander the Great, Bucephalus, who he tamed at the age of 13, was descended from the Mares.
