concept work on Theseus

I've been playing around in my sketchbook trying to come up with an image of Theseus. Usually when drawing characters I like to draw the face first and the rest of the character follows. The face usually indicates to me, amongst other things, the build and personality of the character.

So far I've not come up with anything I'm happy with but thought I would share with you some of the ideas.

Welcome to my journal. The idea of this journal was to motivate me into finishing an animation project I have been playing around with for some time. To document the process of creating an animation from start to finish including all the joy and angst involved in doing so is an interesting prospect. I welcome any thoughts and feedback you might have to offer.

So what is the idea?

An animated re-telling of the greek myth of the Minotaur and whilst trying to stay faithful to the original storyline I'd like to present it with a visual twist. The animation will be mostly created using Flash.

As a starting point here are a few of my drawings.
