Thanatos God of Death Picture

Tumblr post here: [link]

I'm going to start a little collection of pictures like this one.
As you can read he's Thanatos, the greek god of Death.
I use this photo as model.


If you know who is the model, please tell me! /He's a sexy guy indeed/

Something about Thanatos from Wikipedia:
In Greek mythology, Thanatos (Greek: Θάνατος (Thánatos), "Death," from θνῄσκω - thnēskō, "to die, be dying") was the daemon personification of death. He was a minor figure in Greek mythology, often referred to but rarely appearing in person.
Thanatos was regarded as merciless and indiscriminate, hated by—and hateful towards—mortals and the deathless gods. But in myths which feature him, Thanatos could occasionally be outwitted, a feat that the sly King Sisyphus of Korinth twice accomplished. When it came time for Sisyphus to die, Zeus ordered Thanatos to chain Sisyphus up in Tartarus. Sisyphus cheated death by tricking Thanatos into his own shackles, thereby prohibiting the demise of any mortal while Thanatos was so enchained.
In later eras, as the transition from life to death in Elysium became a more attractive option, Thanatos came to be seen as a beautiful Ephebe. He became associated more with a gentle passing than a woeful demise.

There's also a second version of this picture, with Thanatos having straight hair.

I used Paint Tool SAI to do it and Photoshop to add the text.
I listened to... err.. a lot of thing...
The entire album Non Omnis Moriar by Wildpath
