Rivertown- hopefully with a hook this time!

I discovered that there is a reason why people put filters on famous works of art or just paste them into a piece instead of trying to marry styles together. I really couldn’t do justice to any of these pieces, but I did learn a lot from all of them.

I didn’t want to do justice to Thomas Cole’s Destruction because it’s a giant rape/murder scene and that didn’t fit in with what I was trying to do here, but the architecture, the headless statue, and the smoke and fire were inspiring. Imagine what’s on the last part of the page as a restoration of Christ fresco compared to the real thing. Seriously, look up The Course of Empire paintings if you have a chance.

Also seen here are Bert the Turtle from the Duck and Cover short film, a section of the Bayeux Tapestry, and a poor rendition of the Colossus of Constantine.

This page took forever because of a combination of that last panel and fear of starting over. I’m going to start hammering these pages out as quickly as I can from now on because there’s a lot I want to get done and I need to make up for lost time.
