House of Hades by YoriNarpati House of Hades by YoriNarpati
Hey guys, it's been so long since I updated my DA. It's been really hectic recently, but I managed to finish this piece of fan art to celebrate Rick Riordan's upcoming novel the House of Hades in October! This took me about a week on and off, about an hour a day. This is also the first painting I finished with my new Cintiq13HD which I just got about a week ago for my graduation present. I'm still getting used to it, but it's great so far!

I really can't wait for the novel, and also for the Sea of Monsters movie this year, I hope it'll be better than the first movie. I'm really looking forward to some Percabeth scenes in the book, since Riordan did promise there will be some in Tartarus.

I wanted this drawing to have the same feel as the book cover, but I've taken some liberty with some of the detail. It's not as good as I wanted it to be, but it'll have to do for now, because I have other things to do, and detailing this piece even more would be unwise. I also realize that they look a bit older than their age, it's really a bad habit of mine when I do paintings, I tend to overdo things and make them look older than they're supposed to. Other than that I'm quite happy.

I would really appreciate it if you guys leave me a review or a comment, I'd love to hear your feedback on my drawing and what I can improve from them. Thank you!

This is truly amazing. I mean you really went the extra mile with the details,the shading, the highlights, the hair, the torn clothe, and the blood. I also love the background, and the face's expressions. Too me it looks realistic and at the same time cartony, giving it a 'comic' look. (New 52). This piece is truly amazing, especially since you truly surpass your self, I mean, I seen your old drawing and even though they where great, your art went through revolution From Great to Amazing (blow minds aways). With that been said, This is the most beautifully, detailed Percabeth drawing of all time.

Oh my god yes!! Not only is your art work amazing but! You paid such great detail into everything. I love how Percy is holding AnnaBeth protectively. The shading the real ness of this art is breath taking. Looking at this is make me want to do the most fangirling dance! Great job !!! Now the details of the back ground really do bring the reality of Tartarus, simply put that makes me think what are they looking at? Some thing very big and very dangerous by the look of the way he is holding her. I can't get enough of this and it is simply a fav right away. I can not wait to see more art from you! Keep it up

I think you captured them perfectly. i feel they would look rather world-weary by House of Hades. i also like that you've made Annabeth look battle ready, because a number of drawings that i've seen of her have made her look more like Silena, which isn't a bad thing, except that I feel Annabeth is supposed to look like she means business. That's what I think anyway. But this is bang on. way to go!

Excellent work! This is the closest to Percy's personality I've ever seen. But Annabeth is WOOH! The way you did this.... it just fits her so well! :D

POW. That was my mind blowing. Though I do agree, Percy does look a little bit like Frank. O_O. But WHO CARES?! I can't even draw a body! Where the heck did you learn to draw? If you were self taught then wow.

Honost to God this is an amazing depiction. The Facial Expressions, body language, character depiction on on SPOT. My only problem is that Percy kinda look like Frank Zhang to me. Anyonelse?
Rebelle-Artist Featured By Owner Feb 21, 2014  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Incredible work!  TH=he background, the scratches and bruises, the expressions, THE PERCABETH FEELS!  I love it!  In fact, my only complaint is that Percy is a bit too buff.  I mean he's strong but more of a lean type of strong, not heavily built.  The way you drew him is more of Frank's body frame after he received the blessing of Mars.

I NEED THE HOUSE OF HADES TO COME OUT RIGHT NOW!! crying  :frustrated: -revamp 
Gypsy0328 Featured By Owner Jul 31, 2013
Holy Hephaestus O o O!!! It's beautiful. Every thing 'bout it is amazing. The shading is amazing and the details beautiful. Their expressions I love the most, the way it looks. Like it is determined to get out of Tartarus together. The sword is awesome. The way the light reflects off of it. I have not seen any other art that has done that. I love how Percy has Annabeth wrapped around with one arm all protective-like. I'm speechless.
SmilinJack Featured By Owner Jul 30, 2013   Traditional Artist
Great piece!

The only comment I have is like you said about their age. The Prophecy of 7 piece you did got it much better. Maybe just lessen or soften the lines in their face a bit. Percy is also a bit buffer than I ever imagined him, I feel that actually may be making him look a bit older too, especially the thick neck.

I too am chomping at the bit for the next book!

Keep up the great work!
