New Mythology Suite - Poseidon Picture

New Mythology Suite no.1

Poseidon, God of the Seas from Greek mythology.

So, obviously this is a pretty extreme difference then the average depiction of the Poseidon most people know. First off; he's a black guy. Second; he looks like something out of the future or maybe an alien race. Lastly; he's got no hair or beard as is the norm with Poseidon, but not this one, this is my Poseidon!

When I was drawing him I kept thinking he looks like he belongs in the Justice League or something and so I deceided to give him an alias as a superhero(or villain) and call him Tempest...which is very suiting, I think.

I had a bit of a hard time when I started colouring him because I was trying a bunch of things completely new to me, like the light source and the glowing bits. Other then the shitty basic background I feel like I did a great job with this picture and really caught the mood I was going for. I got that sense of mystery I wanted.

Hope you enjoy!
