first version of a hades interpretation for uni project. theme is underworld. i set it into deep sea; because we know even less about those places than about space...
i upped the original sketch along with steps on my artblog, the cookieden [link]
merely a speedpaint at this point, arround 2-3 hours i think.

//edit: some of you talked about the color combination, it's actually inspired by nature; to be more precisely from Vampyroteuthis infernalis 1:50, BBC-doku
or [link]
that thing is so fucking beautiful :o

//edit: touched this one up: [link]

This is one of the most beautiful yet terrifying thing I have ever seen from a Greek god depiction. Bravo! I absolutely adore this. :heart:

Good work with the theme of the Underworld - I think it's the first time I see it associated with the deep sea. Beautiful coloring and I love the eels around Hades.

I like it. I wish I had something more to say (I hate giving generic comments), but I haven't really. Looks almost like a concept for a videogame character.

sieht gut aus, ich mag das ganz dunkle rot das man noch sieht, verleiht dem ganzen irgendwie etwas mystisches! °_°!!

die farben sind inspiriert von "vampyroteuthis infernalis" [link] (ab 1:50)
der geilste tintenfisch überhaupt (und mit 15cm der kleinste :D)
