Atalanta : The Boar by BeatrizMartinVidal Atalanta : The Boar by BeatrizMartinVidal
This one is for the story of Atalanta: Well, the first of them. It's a little confusing, but, esentially she shooted an arrow and killed a boar. And then there was chaos, confusion and a lot of people was killed. Well, you know how greek mythology goes.
This illustration is one of the little ones. The big ones are watercolor, the little ones are pencil on colored paper with gouache higlights and digital color. It sounds more complicated than it is.

This is really beautiful! I love the muted colors. You drew her stance perfectly, though I'm pretty sure that the arrow goes on the other side of the bow. I shoot right handed, and my arrow rests on the left side of the bow.

Yep. You are correct. If you pull the string with your finger then the arrow goes on the knuckle side. For Asian archery, where they pull the string with their thumb, the arrow goes on the thumb side.

AHA!! Sorry, I just started learning about the different kinds of shooting forms all over the world. Up until recently I'd been living a very sheltered archery life.

I don't know, I'm one of those people who say "sorry" all the time! :D Haha. Thank you, though!
