Charon Classic Mythology Sketch Card by RichardCox Charon Classic Mythology Sketch Card by RichardCox
Wikipedia:

In Greek mythology, Charon or Kharon (English pronunciation: /ˈkɛərɒn/, /ˈkɛərən/; Greek Χάρων) is the ferryman of Hades who carries souls of the newly deceased across the rivers Styx and Acheron that divided the world of the living from the world of the dead. A coin to pay Charon for passage, usually an obolus or danake, was sometimes placed in or on the mouth of a dead person. Some authors say that those who could not pay the fee, or those whose bodies were left unburied, had to wander the shores for one hundred years.


I completed 25 sketch cards (in both color and greyscale -- a change for me) and a base card for Perna Studios' Classic Mythology trading card set.

Approximately 2 x 3 inches. Copic markers, colored pencil, & white ink on cardstock.

I think it's awesome that you're doing stuff for Perna Studios! This one is very atmospheric, and very, very cool. YAY Greek myths!

The Charon is probably my favorite of the lot. Thanks for the kind words, and working for Tony and Elaine is just great fun.

Look at all the detail! As an aside, I always wondered how often he fell out of his boat....
