the Greek Myth series (incomplete)

i've been working alot with simplistic styling, sparse use of line, minimal shading, and looking back to Greek (here), Egyptian, Indian, Chinese, Japanese, African and Tribal art that has very distinct styles, in the aims of developing my own style. These look alot better painted than in my sketchbook as you see them. But this is the style I've been developing.
pieces: Achilles' Fall, Hero Bellerophon and 3 of the Defeated Amazons (i do not endorse his misogyny), Theseus and the Minotaur, Prometheus and Atlas. I think Greek Myths are incredibly relevant in the way they deal with human nature, but they're also hypermasculine, and i'm trying to parody that a little bit.
