SEBASTIAN [FINAL VERSION] © Alain Austria pen-and-ink on paper, 26 x 19 cms. completed 26 September 2013. Artist’s files / portfolio. 
And just like that…in an hour or so, I was able to finish the definitive version of “Sebastian”. It is amazing that when one enters the zone…everything just falls into place. After four studies [all of which taught me a lot about inner self] this one seems to be synthesis of the theme: “pain and defiance”.  Here Sebastian ceases to be the mythical saint—-but now a mythical hero. Blood no longer flows profusely despite the arrows…he seems to be totally unaffected by it all. The face remains defiant and determined…the spirit courageous and unfazed by it all. He stares at the sol niger [black sun] with the eyes of a warrior. Though tied he is not at all a victim. Though wounded he is not at all a loser. Gone is the holy card martyr…he has become a god-like heroic figure in the tradition of Campbell’s narratives. - Manila, 26 September 2013.

A Saint Sebastian. The anatomy is probably a bit wonked but I’m happy with it. Figured I’d scan in the lines before I ruin it with color/shading
