Design 8 Group Final  
For the past few weeks I have been obsessing over this panel I have to do for a group mural. It's for my design class, naturally, and we had to create a group collage/mural/whatever themed around 'apocalypse.' My section was to be the gods watching as humanity was wiped out by the moon slurping up all the earth's water with a straw. (Yeah, I know. We are STRANGE!)

Here's the concept sketch, which I scribbled off a few hours before the first class on the back page of a calender:
 



Now, two weeks later, here is the panel to turn into the teacher:



 

I had originally intended to go over the image with some colored pencils and oil pastels, adding detail, but I'm completely out of time so too bad!  After everything's graded, and we dismantle our pieces, I hope I can finish this as I originally intended.

The deities, front row from left to right, are:
1/ Men (later Mithras), Phyrgia
2/ Generic Earth Mother/Goddess figure, pick your favorite one
3/ Chang-Ngo, China
4/ Shiva, India
5/ Ares or Mars, Greece or Rome (your pick)
6/
Freya (or generic Valkyrie), Norse mythology (originally she was going to be blonde)
7/ Mr. Grim Reaper

The little group on the background contains
1/ The Virgin Mary
2/ Buddha
3/ Isis
and a prostrate Neptune.
 

edit to add final group project, after it was all assembled:

Gods and deities
I love the line drawing, you have real talent, the spontaneity got lost in translation but as you say maybe it needs more work.

What an awesome subject to work on (my favourite, really) and the result is wonderful! Do you guys want to come and decorate my home? :-)
