I need to think of something to do with this?

Ancient Action Scene!

These "Mythic" warriors were the "super heroes" of Classical era Athens.

It is perhaps ironic that paintings on vases have survived better than pre Roman frescos and that we have more Minoan wall paintings than we do from later periods. But the paintings from Thera like those from Pompeii survived like these vases because they were buried away and not painted over like the wall paintings.

Note the fine line work and drawing and how the painter has followed the curves of the vessel. "Content" may be "king" but you should also think about Context media and materials!

Base color and Metallic Effects.

This is the Inkscape Copper and Chocolate filter over several shades of yellow orange and brown. There are some subtle  differences though the filter tends to reduce them. Each line of text had a different base color before I added the filter.
