mythology series → the messenger god hermes [Ἑρμῆς]
with every city we visit
singing our songs
the blessing you give has overflowed
with every moment we share
each loving embrace, a reminder of who we are
fearing the day that this could be all gone
revealing our purpose
ignite the stage
carried by wings
all the hope that this just won’t fade

Because they are my favorite :3 I think I could do other gods if I wanted but right now I’m perfectly fine with these two <3
I wanted to draw Aplollo for years now, and finally I did it 8D He really was my second favorite male character till Nico became kinda badass (and gay) and I’m so so sad that his part in the books are reduced to the short parts in
The Titan’s Curse ;A; He really needs a comback~
Now…when I look at him he’s like a terrible haiku composing cross between Leo and Jason 8DDD
Hermes, the ancient Greek god of mischief & various. How I like to imagine him in PJatO, taking a few (a lot) of artistic liberties.
An Iris for Iris, watercolour
Finally as close to done as I can get it after wrestling with it for a while! Hermes and Iris from Greek mythology, with some details of their faces and the caducei snakes. More info on deviantART.
Work in progress photos here:
Copper & Caduceus: Hermes Prayer Beads.
Lapis lazuli (frequently used in the ancient world), copper pennies, and a bronze caduceus/kerykeion staff. Strung in fours on copper wire. These were a commission, in tribute to Hermes, herald of the gods.
Apollo: I know in my heart that Hermes wants me.
Hermes: No… no we are not.
Apollo: *kisses Hermes head*
Apollo and Daphne, Marble
Inspired from the Greek myth as found in Ovide’s Metamorphosis
