The Minotaur

Half Bull But Still Manly As Hell!

 
So it’s another holiday week and this is a beast who deserves a lil extra time so we’re stretching this baby til the 12th… Ideally that means more of you have time to submit vs the last time when you all forgot (jerks)…
 
Anyways I’m pretty sure most of you know what a Minotaur is from his countless pop culture appearances from Dr Who to Percy what’s his face and put quite simply he’s a dude with a cow’s head who lives in a maze and eats people but just in case you’re aching for learnin’ here’s the full on story ripped straight from wikipedia:
After he ascended the throne of Crete, Minos competed with his brothers to rule. Minos prayed to Poseidon to send him a snow-white bull, as a sign of support (the Cretan Bull). He was to kill the bull to show honor to Poseidon, but decided to keep it instead because of its beauty. He thought Poseidon would not care if he kept the white bull and sacrificed one of his own. To punish Minos, Aphrodite made Pasiphaë, Minos’ wife, fall deeply in love with the bull. Pasiphaë had the archetypal craftsman Daedalus make a hollow wooden cow, and climbed inside it in order to mate with the white bull. The offspring was the monstrous Minotaur. Pasiphaë nursed him in his infancy, but he grew and became ferocious, being the unnatural offspring of man and beast, he had no natural source of nourishment and thus devoured man for sustenance. Minos, after getting advice from the oracle at Delphi, had Daedalus construct a gigantic labyrinth to hold the Minotaur. Its location was near Minos’ palace in Knossos.
 
Now we’re celebrating the 4th during the contest and entirely not required but feel free to let your Minotaur blow sh*t up as troublesome youth are prone to do… and please no more of this “but I don’t know how to draw” nonsense cause if you haven’t noticed, you don’t need to be talented, just have fun with it and we all get to share! It’s been a while since we’ve breached 20 submissions and this one has lots of potential, so get out your doodlers and get to it!
