Poseidon - Gods of Olympus by LorenzoLivrieri Poseidon - Gods of Olympus by LorenzoLivrieri
Poseidon is one of the twelve Olympians, and he is the ruler of the oceans.
He is one of Zeus' younger brothers, along with Hades, god of the underworld.

As Zeus and Hades, Poseidon was the son of the titans Rhea and Cronus, and fought against them in the "Titanomachy".

Poseidon himself was the father of various famous mythological characters such as Theseus, Charybdis, Pegasus with Medusa; and many, many others!

I imagined Poseidon to be a very tacky person, who wears jewellery of every shape and kind: fancy sandals, jeweled bracelets and golden neck chains.
I decided to cover him in gold because he's one of the twelve Olympians, so he's very rich and rules over a prosper kingdom; I figured that he would have a very haughty attitude, for that reason.
Since he is the god of the sea I thought that his favourite environment could've been the beach, that's why I made him gorgeously tanned! :D

Man, he was relatively hard to color. I had to make his skin pink, but then I put brown all over him to get the right shade to make him look like a tanned person - if you look closely you could still see some pink spots like on the elbows and the feet, since those are the spots that don't get really tanned, normally.

Hope you like my version of the god of the sea! :)

Thank you very much, glad you like the fact that he's tanned - it was an experiment. X)

Great depiction of Poseidon, I haven't seen many tanned versions of Poseidon. It fits well with him being the god of the sea and helps differentiate him from Zeus.

Thanks. I thought he would've been the kind of person that likes to hang around the beach and bathing in the sun while surfing the ocean. xD

It; a really good impression of this god, one that would fit him pretty good I think.
He looks just like I would have expected me, the hair looks really cool on him as character and it's blue robes fit the character.

I really like him, and judging by the looks on his face, he would be kinda ... egoistic maybe but when you would get to know him maybe a great guy?
I don't know, I always saw poseidon as a friendly god.

Thank you, I'm glad you overall like him. ^^

I imagine this Poseidon as a bit of a douche and a bit full of himself too, but he surely would also be an entertaining and witty person to talk to. :)

Yeah, that's just the image I would get from the drawing, which means you definitely capture character in a single pose :)

L'impressione che vuole dare, di sicuro! Secondo me Poseidone un po' se la tira. xP

Tra l'altro con quel baffo e quel capello sembra un presentatore di una trasmissione anni 70/80. Un bell'effettone :D (Big Grin)
