Charles Beckendorf -Hephaestus

He was tough enough to make most monsters cry for their mommies.

....forgot the page. Maybe I'll look it up later xD

SPOILER from here on!

Ah, Beckendorf x'D. I loved him, really. One of my favourite key characters in the series. I wouldn't even call him and Silena "minor" characters since their actions were pretty important for the storyline and all. And their deaths! T_T So dramatic xP

I enjoyed doing this. It's my first time to properly draw an African American and I don't know if I succeeded or if I failed...you tell me :XD: The green glowing things on his belt are Greek fire explosives. They explode if you drop them and the glass breaks. The colour/black stuff on his jeans is oil. And the Greek letter on his sword belt is an "eta"= H, the letter of his father :meow:. Btw, I imagine him to have a long, two handed blade for a sword. Would be fitting for him somehow. And yes, I'm well aware that the Greek didn't have longswords. But he's a blacksmith and he's from America, not Greece, I'm sure he could manage something like that ;P.

In my opinion, he's drawn far too gentle and weak looking in most fanarts. Don't know if that's always part of the style or something. But when I imagine Beckendorf, I remember the above quote Percy once did. He looks tough. Very. So the scar, the muscles, the torn shirt and jeans are supposed to picture that. On the other hand, his character is rather friendly and caring. You get that by looking into his eyes- hopefully. So yes, he is gentle. But he doesn't look like it. Okay, end of rant here ^^;.

Hope you enjoy it!!
Love ya ~:heart: :tighthug:

Really love the pic. Beckendorf is and always will be one of my all time favorite characters in the series. I also agree with you. Most pics of him I have seen don't portray him all too well but you managed to capture and portray him really well. Great job!

I have to ask, what's up with the shoulder? Is it a birthmark?
Kat-Anni's avatar
That's alright ^^. It's actually supposed to be a scar x'D. I figured it would look lighter since the pigments don't colour back the way they were when the wound was big enough. I may have overdone it a bit though xP.

So, like if he burned himself?
Kat-Anni's avatar
For example :). I didn't think up a story behind the scar, you could make one ;P

I was thinking he was born with it because remember, his father was lame when his was born. So like a birth defect?


Lame= weakened at birth.
