The worship of Neptune, as the Roman version of Poseidon, is another example of cross-cultural assimilation in the ancient world where a great deal of dialogue and syncretism among different civilizations took place—not merely strife and warfare.
This is a 9x12 drawing done with pencil and charcoal I finished today. I have always liked Neptune, and the entire mythology of those ancient gods. I took a nude dra ing class my sophomore year in college. Since then I haven't really drawn any nudes, since obviously I don't have access to a bunch of naked people. But drawing the human body is very hard, and I don't want to forget everything I have learned.
