It's Percy Jackson! My favorite book character of all time. God bless Rick for creating him. After 10 long hours of painting, I finally finished it!
With the release of Mark of Athena
, I wanted to re-draw Percy to celebrate. I've drawn Percy twice before, but none have satisfied me. I didn't base this drawing on Logan Lerman, I like him, but he isn't very suitable as Percy in my opinion. This is how I 'see' Percy in my mind when I read the books. I do realize he looks more grown-up here, I did that intentionally. This is how I pictured him looking like in The Last Olympian. That's why he's not wearing Camp Jupiter's purple t-shirt, and he doesn't have the tattoo and the tablet on the necklace. I am so so excited for the Mark of Athena, but I haven't got the book yet, so please guys, no spoilers!
Anyway, onto the drawing itself, I tried to put more details into this one, which is something I rarely do. But this is Percy I'm painting, so it doesn't really bother me. Played more with the lighting and also shadows. I realize that the water doesn't look like water, I got lazy so that's the best I can do at the moment. The anatomy still has some flaws as well, but I am extremely happy with how his face turned out. Overall, I'm pleased with this piece.
Please leave me a critique guys, I would really really appreciate that. I'd love to know what I could improve on my drawings. Comments and faves are also very much appreciated. But please, if you guys have the time, leave me a critique okay? Thanks a lot you guys!
