The Ghost King by BeautyLikeNight The Ghost King by BeautyLikeNight
*SPOILER WARNING*

I have a new favorite book series: Percy Jackson and the Olympians by Rick Riordan. One of my favorite characters is Nico di Angelo, Son of Hades, the Ghost King. I was doodling a anime/manga-like sketch of him during church today, and wondered what it would look like in "real life." This was the result. It ended up being very different from the sketch (which I will upload when I finish editing it), but I like it. A LOT.

This is the first photomanipulation I've made that I actually like. That actually looks *good.* :dance:

Took about 5 hours or so on Adobe Photoshop 7.0

The see-through girl is supposed to be Bianca (Nico's sister), the boy: Nico, the eyes: Hades, the ugly thing with crown: King Minos.

Judging by this really late reply you can probably tell I'm pretty much a massive DA lurker/idler now.

Saw the eyes up top. Really nice work with all of it.

Awesome. That's probably what Nico really looks like. though a few comments. Bianca isn't supposed to be wearing a dress. And the stygian sword of Nico is pure black.

Thanks! Yeah, I was surprised that the boy I found looked so much like I imagined Nico.

About the dress . . . I really just found this photoshoot set with this girl in a white dress made up like a ghost in a graveyard. She looked so ethereal and, well, ghost-like, that I had to use her, lol.

And I know Nico's sword is black . . . but the little skull seemed so perfect I had to use this one. I probably could have colored it black, but I'm terrible at coloring. =/

Cool. The way you modified everything is pretty much perfect.

Oh and with the coloring stuff, I'm pretty sure there's a tutorial somewhere here. You could probably learn. With additional skills you'll be a master. :))
