About this creation
Here's my creation for the MocOlympics2013

Now I know many of you are looking at this and saying to yourself "what does Jason and the Argonauts have to do with the Zodiac"? Well here's your answer the Golden Fleece hanging in the oak tree guarded by the big green serpent is Aries the Ram. You see Aries was sent by Hermes to fly Phrixus and Helle away to Coclis to save them from their father King Athamas, who was being influenced by his new wife to have them killed so she could retain control of their fathers kingdom. On their way there Helle fell off and drowned. When they arrived the Ram instructed Phrixus to slay him and present his fleece to the King of Colchis. The King then hung the fleece in the sacred Grove of Ares where it was guarded by the big green serpent. In honor of his service Aries was placed in the heavens as the constellation Aries the Ram.





Well I hope you enjoy my creation and my liberal take on the category. Comments are always welcomed. Thanks for viewing.

I don't mind the simple nature of the serpent - I think it has a cool, comic-book appearance to it along with the FP and Jason's facial expression! Nice work and good luck.

Nice one. I like the overall composition, you lead the eye through the scene nicely and the Argo's a nice touch. I feel that the landscape could do with a bit more fleshing out though - the grass seems to be a square border and the dark tan plates lack much colour or natural curves. The serpent's cool, though fairly simple, and the tree is a good effort. This could definitely be improved, but you managed to lay a stellar foundation. Well done.

Thanks for the kind words everyone, and I'm glad some of you caught the Argo hiding in the background.
