Minos

My design and Illustration of Minos, the Judge of the dead.

In Greek mythology, Minos (/ˈmnɒs, nəs/; Greek: Μίνως, Minōs) was the first King of Crete, son of Zeus and Europa. Every nine years, he made King Aegeus pick seven young boys and seven young girls to be sent to Daedalus‘s creation, the labyrinth, to be eaten by the Minotaur. After his death, Minos became a judge of the dead in the underworld.

The Minoan civilization of Crete has been named after him by the archaeologist Sir Arthur Evans.

 

The illustration depicts Minos on his throne judging the dead, the design focuses more on the snake aspect surrounding the mythology of the character and I really wanted to push the illustration to reflect this.
