The Melting point pt.1 by MixedScales The Melting point pt.1 by MixedScales
Daedalus made it but his son was too eager. A simple earth pony who could crafted wings to fly, an inventor and creator of the Labyrinth and many other fantastic things. Yet he was not able to do one thing. To give his son freedom...

We think so often on how foolish Icarus was flying to close to the sun. But we rarely think on how his father must have felt. Or just why Icarus flew so high. After all how do you know your limits if you never try?

This was drawn for weak 170 of ATG a escaping pony. So here we have Daedalus looking back on his journey. Knowing he lost so much and still has so far to go.  inspired by the two songs from Thrice that Take a looks at different approach to the classic story.

I love the myth of Daedalus and have a drawing with it planned for month now. This one here is very minimalistic, but says everything. Well done.
