A self-initiated exploration into photo-manipulation. As the title indicates, the theme has a mythological approach by depicting athletes as Greek gods. Research on each deity was conducted to determine the athlete, mood, color, and aesthetic of each illustration. You can view the entire image making process on BEHANCE.
