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?
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
