The Olympians by lorellashray The Olympians by lorellashray
aka: The most dysfunctional, overdramatic and messed up family of all time.

For the Percy Jackson Fanzine organised by Angela (Dreamsoffools) on Tumblr! o/ It's currently ongoing but should be completed soon, so if anyone is interested look here!

We could draw whatever we wanted for the zine but Rick's versions of the gods are so brilliant i just had to draw them! (Poseidon the Fisherman is my favourite thing srsly) Hope it's easy to guess who they are! :D If you don't know just ask though. someone on tumblr asked me who the blonde goddess with the pixie cut was and i was laughing for a good 20 mins because the only blonde there is Apollo. might need to work on my man drawing skills it seems... xD

Persephone makes flowers bloom and Demeter is the Goddess of the Harvest so Persephone is blooming flowers on Dionysus' head and Demeter would be the woman in the wheat dress

Do you think could you make an image like this for the titans? Or to the Gigantes from Heroes of Olympus?
I just think there is TOO MANY fanarts only for the demigods, but it would really amazing if we had fanarts for the Kronos and his brothers and Sister or Alcyoneu and his brothers, or even maybe scenes like Typhong attacking the gods, or maybe Mars appearing in Camp Jupiter.
I just think we should have MORE Fanarts about another beings or scenes, instead of only the demigods over and over again.
Now about THIS fanart, this is one of the my favorites fanarts EVER!! It is really amazing how you can put the olympians with their different personalities in one image. :)

Finally I found the original artist of this. I’ve loved this pic ever since I found it on Pinterest, but I wasn’t sure if the artist was here on Deviantart or not since I could never bring up the pic in my searches (and there wasn't a link back on Pinterest. Now that I've found you, I will make sure to put a link back to this on the pic I pinned over there.).

 

Anyway… I just wanted to tell you how spot-on you got everyone in this! It’s the ONLY piece of fanart I’ve seen of the gods and goddesses where they actually look exactly as I picture them in my mind while reading the books, especially when it comes to Hades and Hermes. Wonderful job! And wonderful style as well!

I love this! This is brilliant! I love the way you made Artemis, Athena, and Demeter look so annoyed. I love the way you did Aphrodite's face and Ares's eyes. This is overall incredibly brilliant. I can only imagine how much fun this must have been to sketch out! : )

Lemme see if I can guess them...

The top three: Poseidon, Zeus, Hades
The four below them: Athena, Hephaestus, Hera, annnnnd .... Demeter?
Then below her is Ares, and then Aphrodite next to him...
And then Hermes on the far left, with Apollo and Artemis next to him, followed by Hesta in the cloak, Dionysus, and finally Persephone.

I love how you rendered them all! My only thing is that I always envisioned Dionysus as being a bit more rotund, but I still love him nonetheless! I especially love what you did with Artemis--I never really could picture her very well, but the way you drew her is perfect <3

Oh my gods!!!! This is so cool! You did an amazing job at showing the different gods and goddesses emotions and personalities perfectly!!! You can see they're attitudes towards each other and they're reactions are spot on! I personally can tell the difference between all of them because they're how I imagined them when I read Percy Jackson! The coloring is great and you have displayed the most chaotic family in all of history wonderfully!

Who is the one standing right above Dionysus? Is is Persephone?
Reply
:icontiredmichiko:
tiredmichiko Featured By Owner Nov 27, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
I believe it is Demeter because the order from top to bottom seems to be vaguely be going from the oldest appearance to the youngest appearance. (And if you read Percy Jackson you know that there might be some older gods/goddesses at the bottom but they take on younger appearances.) I also think that it's Demeter because she was the goddess of the harvest/agriculture and grain is what she talks about the most in the books and that's what's on her dress. She is also giving Hades a hateful look and which comes from how he basically kidnapped her daughter Persephone. Now I think Persephone is closer to the bottom putting flowers on Dionysus because she not only looks younger looks younger but she is the goddess of spring so that means flowers and green plants which she is putting on Dionysus's head and are around her arms. Sorry for long explanation but felt that I needed to explain myself thoroughly!

I asked if the one directly above Dionysus, playing with the flowers was Persephone.

Thanks. At my school, if you don't have more than two legitimate reasons for something, most of the other students kind of ignore your argument, so I'm use to having to list a bunch of reasons why I think something. It's somewhat of an unspoken rule there.

Same with our essays. We also have to have text evidence to back almost everything up if it's an essay for a book.
