Prophecy of 7 by YoriNarpati Prophecy of 7 by YoriNarpati
So after 13+ long hours of painting, I finally finished this painting! I'm pretty sure most of you guys already know who these characters are, but just in case you don't, from top to bottom, Leo Valdez, Frank Zhang, Hazel Levesque, Piper Mclean, Jason Grace, Annabeth Chase, and Percy Jackson from the Mark of Athena by Rick Riordan.

I just finished the book today, and I loved it! I won't go into details because I don't want to spoil it for the people out there who haven't read it yet, but I gotta say I wanna strangle Rick for that awful cliff-hanger at the end. And now we have to wait for another year for the House of Hades.

So anyway, I've been wanting to draw these 7 Demigods from last year, but I never got the chance or time. So I'm really happy that I got to finish this painting. Just for the record, this is the first time for me painting this much people in one drawing. I tried my best to capture each of their personality, and also the little details like Percy's and Annabeth's necklaces, Jason's scar, and Leo's tool belt. But please forgive me if I missed any details, I just got really tired and have decided to just leave it here. For the background I intentionally made the colors similar to the cover of the book just so it'll get the same mood or vibe.

So there you go, I do hope you guys will like it, and please do leave a comment, or better yet a critique. I would really really appreciate it you guys. I would love to hear feedback and know what I can improve on my drawings. Thanks a lot!

EDIT : A few months ago Disney Hyperion contacted me, and they said that they would like to use the image for a poster accompanying Rick's final novel 'Blood of Olympus' to be sold in certain stores. I was so surprised and I really couldn't believe it at first. It really is such an honour, and I'm just so ecstatic to take part in the Percy Jackson series. I've updated the painting because I felt that it had lots of flaws on it. I redid most of their faces, and repainted the clothes and water as well.

Well first off this is a beautiful piece and very well drawn and I love the way you have the seven demigods. The light sourse is very noticable and the shadows appear perfectly with it. (Sorry thats always the first thing I notice because Im not very good at it.) The contrast from light to dark for the background is done beautifully and the proportions and poses are very well executed as well. The lightning (Im am assuming that is what it is and Im terribly sorry if that is wrong) Is also well done and looks like actual lightning!
Over all I give this a Ten out of Ten. :)
What do you think?

Wow, the first thing I thought was, 'OMG OMG OMG ITS PERCY JACKSON!!!' Then I was like, 'this guy could be a proffesional artist.
Overall the proportion and posture of all the people/characters is very good, although the girls faces could do with a little more work. On average, people draw one gender slightly better than the other, the boys are very good, try giving the girls slightly rounder faces and smaller noses than the boys. The background is very good and you have chosen the colours well, but maybe have a little more contrast between the characters and the background so they stand out more, just make the background a little darker might work. Now im not a proffesional artist or anything, but this is what I think, and overall its a very good drawing. Look forward to seeing more of you work!

I love this! :D I find it a bit challenging to keep the right proportions, do an interesting pose, AND still follow the laws of perspective. Plus its a group so its even harder. You did a phenomenal job of conveying their personalities!

I am commenting on this just to say that I now have this poster and I give you props for making a masterpiece so amazing that it actually caught the eye of the company that hosts the thing that it was made for. You probably won't see this, but if you do then bravo! :D

Hi there! :D Thank you for commenting, I'm actually really excited that someone on deviantART actually got the poster and traced it back to my account. It's just so crazy to me as well, I really didn't expect them to contact me to use my artwork. I'm truly humbled. :aww:
