Oh my, what happened here? I must have tapped into some dark, gruesome corner of my psyche. Skulls and skeletons! What better way to represent the god of the Underworld? I must admit, I wasn't going to make Hades a skeleton all the time. It was my first idea for him, but I decided to make him just a regular pony when I thought to myself "Hades isn't technically god of the dead, just god of the Underworld". But, I tossed that out when my drawing of normal-pony Hades turned out awful. Plus drawing skulls, skeletons, and wicked scythes is cool.
