Return to the Riordanverse

Alright, so I thought that I was done with that phase of my life where my whole thing was about Demigods, Magicians, Legionnaires, Einherjar and failing fallen Greek gods, but apparently not. I ventured into the magical world of Reddit and realized that I have not failed the mythical world yet. I was encouraged by 2k members to come back to the Riordanverse, worlds created by author Rick Riordan and possibly stay there.

I love that universe, I love that world so I will come back.

As a first offering to the gods and to the demigods, etc. I drew something from Kane Chronicles as suggested by my dear sister. It is Anubis , the Egyptian god, in his Riordanverse form. I took visual clues from Viria and the official one to create my version of this guy. He ended up looking like a lost member of a certain k-pop boyband, but I will take it.

I enjoyed painting him and I think I will go back and redo all my Portraits of the demigods and characters. Plus maybe scenes from the books. What do you think about this kid?

Expect more Riordanverse art from me! Exciting!

Keep Creating!

Festus the Dragon and the ARGO II

Festus the Dragon, Watercolor, Coldpress 2015 by Little Miss Marikit (Maia Castaneda)

I am still on a Percy Jackson Hype. In fact, I should be posting art of the demigods right now ( I could probably do it after this quick post) but I am more excited to blog about this bronze Dragon.  Festus the dragon – a character from the Heroes of Olympus Series by Rick Riordan.  I love that series and I am on the 3rd read. ( well audio book – I love listening to the voices). This bronze dragon was created from Celestial Bronze, and fixed by Leo Valdez in Heroes of Olympus to transport them on their quest.

I painted Festus to challenge myself, really. I used to do a ton of details in my painting and I knew i could do it but had no inspiration to. I needed to move out of my comfort zone (doing busts) and start doing things with background and details. I am pretty confident in painting bronze (old things) so this was a good art piece for me.

I failed the BG though. I should have planned more.

Anyway, Festus was broken in the first book and was reborn into this
