Twart - Death of Hercules by ronsalas Twart - Death of Hercules by ronsalas
Holy crap. Everyone must be busy as hell because there is no other reason why I would be the first one to post a Twart of the week.

Anyway, I went mythological on this one. I've been reading into a lot of Greek mythology in the past month and I always liked this image of Hercules' death:
After that he asked his friend Philoctetis to build him a pyre out of hardy oak and wild olive on the mountain Oata. He was burnt to death on the pyre; the fire hurt far less than the poison. Before dying, Hercules offered his bow and arrows as a token of gratitude to Philoctetis. His father Zeus then turned him into a god.

Man! I was actually trying to make him look like Galifianakis, too. I am the worst at likenesses.
