The Odyssey by ChaosAcathla The Odyssey by ChaosAcathla
*EDITED* Made some changes to Oliver's face, mostly colour, some shadow. 31/10/14

I saw a screen shot on tumblr of the two stills from this scene in the car of a recently shot Oliver revealing himself to be the Arrow to Felicity. I got this idea of doing the two portraits together, so this happened. I feel like it needs something else but i'm just not sure what. 

Love this show.

If you wanna see WIPs/progress shots or details give me a shout

Painted in CS6 Approx 13hrs

Thanks hun! I've found that Arrow work doesn't get much notice here on dA but i'm too in love with the show to care. I really went for it with the details, so i'm glad you appreciate them!

You are my favourite person, I can't believe thats still on your profile! :glomp:

You're welcome!!! Yeah hopefully, by season 3, more people will start watching and the show will get more attention here on dA, as much as it does on tumblr..


Well, you said 'keep the journal as your current journal for at least two days'..  So I did! :D  Apropos, there will always be a ChaosAcathla section of my heart my main page/profile. :D Just so you know. ;)

Great job Mel........hard enough taking on one portrait but two!!.
You must be a sucker for punishment.

My only thing with watching Arrow is I sometimes expect John Barrowman to break out into a rendition of Dancing Queen at any moment.
Please tell me it's not just me:)

Thanks hun, yeah I definitely jumped in the deep end with this one, but it felt good! :D

Yeah I get what you mean, but I more often keep expecting him to whip out his time travel device and introduce him self as 'Captain Jack'. ^^
