Lord Hades

"He was the third god I'd met, but the first who really struck me as godlike.
He was at least ten feet tall, for one thing, and dressed in black silk robes and a crown of braided gold. His skin was albino white, his hair shoulder length and jet black. He lounged on his throne of fused human bones, looking lithe, graceful, and dangerous as a panther.
I immediately felt like he should be giving the orders. He knew more than I did. He should be my master. Then I told myself to snap out of it.
Hades's aura was affecting me, just as Ares's had. The Lord of the Dead resembled pictures I'd seen of Adolph Hitler, or Napoleon, or the terrorist leaders who direct suicide bombers. Hades had the same intense eyes, the same kind of mesmerizing, evil charisma.
'You are brave to come here, Son of Poseidon,' he said in an oily voice. 'After what you have done to me, very brave indeed. Or perhaps you are simply very foolish.'"

~ "The Lightning Thief", Page 309

Yes, Lord Hades. He's just lifting his helm of darkness from his "oily head", unmelting from the shadows. I know he has long hair but I kind of always imagined him to have curly hair like Nico (it can still be oily though). Nico probably had that from his mother (who is Italian) but I kind of thought of him to look similar to that, only with pale skin. So here. The light source is again diffuse.

Hades, ruler of the underworld and god of riches is the second child of Kronos and Rhea, that's why I draw him as second. Next up, to be fair would be Demeter, then Poseidon, Hera and Zeus. IF I'm keeping this up. I'm not sure yet, depends on my mood. But I had enough free time and an idea for Hades so here he is ^^.

Really hope you like it!! :meow:
Love ya ~ :heart: :tighthug:

This piece of work is very superior. It shows how Hades is fierce, yet the title gives him a more high-standing ruler feel. The vision I give five stars, the work is clearly shown and very descriptive. The originality I gave a four and a half, you don't exactly own this character. He belongs to the Ancient Greeks. For technique, five stars, you gave the surroundings a glowing effect. That was nice. And the final category, impact. I gave five stars, when I first saw this it was breathtaking. The detail, his expression, the atmosphere. All perfectly set.
Overall, this piece gets five stars.

I actually really like your take on Hades right here! I love that you depicted him as looking like Nico (or I guess the other way around), because of if you think about it Percy resembled Poseidon and Thalia resembled Zeus. I also like how you incorporated the background of fire while the rest of it is black. It really shows just how powerful Hades is but also his mysterious side. I just love your work and this picture is one of my new favorites! Great job on this picture and keep it up!! I look forward to seeing more from you!

If I was Persephone, I'd NEVER leave the Underworld.

I understand :D :D

Yep! She only left because sMother dearest was going to destroy the world if she didn't. 

This is exactly how I always imagined Hades whenever I read the original myths/PJO/HoO so it was pretty amazing to see that depiction embodied in this picture.
