I am back! And I gave myself 2 hours to sketch again instead of allotting that to my papers πŸ˜‚ but since this day was way too stressful, I think I deserve sketching time at least.

This time, I want to fulfill what I told @marcmire about giving life to one of his texts. It was hard to choose from because all of them gave clear images in my head and I wanted to justify the passages properly if I ever did sketch them. In the end, I decided on River of Styx which is this article below:

https://read.cash/@marcmire/river-of-styx-2a919366

It's good and it's one of his first posts here

So on with the sketch. For this one, I used charcoal that I also dislike using but since charcoal provided a solid color, I thought it would fit what I was thinking

Yes, this is how messy I make on rough sketches. It was still in the making anyways

I had two types of charcoal sticks, a light one and a dark one. I only use these two because I tend to really do solid colors when I use charcoal. Some only stick with the medium shaded stick though and I think that's fine but since my hands are too light, I need to use the extremes in shades

Slowly, I shaded things in part by part, though it doesn't look like much but now theres the questioning lady about to be taken to River Styx (probably me πŸ˜‚) then charon who is the ferryman of the river. It lacks elements from the poem like the gates of hell and Cerberus but I did this at 10 pm :"" no more brain cells plus hard to draw a three-headed dog :<

I do feel like I could have added more details onto the water and maybe added floating soals in the water but this is what can be done in 2 hours before I sleep. I hope @marcmire will enjoy this and hopefully it's close enough to what could have been done for the short passage

That's too vague a request. Basing it on something like a story or a song would be nice

I did, it was okay
