  • Portrait of Alexander the Great
    Jonathan Mahoney
  • This began as a doodle, and grew to something more.  I was always intrigued by the representation of Alexander the Great in the height of his reign.  On certain pieces of currency he was shown having horns, a symbol in the day of deity or supernatural power.  My mind always jumps to conclusions, this one being "maybe this was the accurate portrayal?"  So I drew it out in graphite, moving it into digital coloring.  It remains one of my favorite little drawings.
