Icarus Falls by UlaFish Icarus Falls by UlaFish
A speed painting for Conceptart.org's character of the week challenge. The theme was "Icarus", but it had to be a new take on the original myth. I went with the idea of Icarus being a moth, who battered himself against a lamp light too long, singeing his wings and knocking himself out.
