Olympic Idea- Work in Progress

This is a drawing for another idea based on the London Olympics, with this piece I am combining the ancient Greek Olympics with modern day; by incorporating typical ancient patterns, the stylised horse and houses with the trophy and the modern day man.

Thinking about finishing the piece off in photoshop again as I have had some good reviews from the previous piece
Thanks for looking

London Olympics Development

Hi again!

I have developed my London idea by adding colour and textures on photoshop, I wanted to include old maps on London and give the art work a vintage look

I've combined lino textures into this piece which I think gives it a hand made quality, however I'm not sure whether they are too dark and dull the work down?

Hopefully I will develop this image farther by creating a screen print for it, so watch this space!

If anyone has any suggestions please comment, thanks for looking!!

London Olympics

At the minute I'm just thinking around the idea of the London Olympics which are coming up and thought it would be fun and appropriate for an illustration,

At the moment its just an idea in black ink, the concept is a royal guardsman running with the Olympic touch throughout London, with relevant imaginary in the illustration, such as significant London Buildings, the Olympics logo and bunting.

I'm in two minds with how to finish this, either screen print (which will take a few months to get back into the print room as I'm considering an MA in Design at Lincoln uni starting in middle of September) or digitally, where I can include maps/newspaper for the background and play around with colour and texture.

Well here is the idea, let me know if any one has any thoughts or comments,
I was thinking for colour scheme to have a rusty red, light cyan blue and goldie pale yellow.
