Tantalus by haystax45 Tantalus by haystax45
A sketch of Tantalus, from not only Greek Mythology, but from Rick Riordan's 'The Sea of Monsters.'

Poor Tantalus...can't get food no matter how hard he tries...

Poor Tan-Tan! D= I love him so much! Though he reminds me so much of the Trix rabbit. Silly Tantalus! Trix our for kids, whom you have not served to the kids! ....Yeah it doesn't have the same ring to it, huh? Love your drawing! I'll probably read the Sea of Monsters and use your drawing to better visualise him! =D

I hate him, but I still almost feel sorry for the guy. I mean, not eating for three thousand years would be rough

Poor Tantalus? He served his children to the gods!

And more importantly, he was a big meanie to Percy!

I love your drawings. They totally fit Percy Jackson and the Olympains wow that's a mouthful.

Yay! Art for this series!

Looks really good, is it possible to color it? It could probably look so wonderful with color...

Nice job...

Lovely art!

have you ever attempted at drawing Tyson? That would be pretty cool.

Thank you!

I've always planned on attempting to draw Tyson, but I've never liked him very much, so that seems to stop me from drawing him.
I will, however, give it a shot.

Haha when I was reading The Sea of Monsters, I pictured this kid in my math class with one eye and he made the perfect Tyson.

It's nice (why is he throwing burgers?) But his left arm seems deffinately longer than his right.

Oh, well in Greek Mythology, Tantalus was punished by the gods, and whatever he tried to eat or drink would flee from him.

And, you're right about the arm thing. I'll try and fix that.
