The Twelve Olympians by chiaroscuro8 The Twelve Olympians by chiaroscuro8
a.k.a Olympus 2.0 [Download for clearer view]

As you can see, I have revamped my first deviation from 6 months ago [carouselights.deviantart.com/a…, and upon many people's requests, have added the rest of the Olympians in. Throughout this process, I've realised that my models have lost some weight.

L-R
Hermes: Messenger god, famous for his winged sandals. Generally b/w with blue-ish colour accent and a messenger bag c;
Artemis: Didn't really change this design because I was quite happy with it already. Hair changed colour though.
Poseidon: Based off my old design but more wavy and foamy and more cobalt/less royal blue.
Zeus: Total revamp [aside from colour scheme]. Purple storm cloud print dress [download for close details] and gold... somethings.
Hera: Wife of Zeus, one of her symbols is the peacock, which is what I based this design off. I like her pose and expression
Athena: I don't think I did her justice. Owl feather dress, with blue accent because blue is the colour of Intelligence [divergent-erudite reference if anyone caught it]
Dionysus: Wine god. Red wine colour theme, high-low dress and interesting hair.
Apollo: See at this stage I was running out of ideas so I based it off one of my previous designs for another collection.
Hephaestus: Similar to old design, just darkened armor and removed some of it.
Aphrodite: Once again, similar to old design, although the top has become somewhat more revealing and darkened colours.
Demeter: Agriculture goddess. Wheat and poppies is what this is based off. 'Cuter' design compared to the others.
Ares: War god. This is one that I left to last and didn't really want to draw. Probably my least favourite design.

And that concludes the Twelve Olympians.
On other news, I drew this whilst watching Shingeki no Kyojin/Attack on Titan and whilst rewatching Firefly [which so should have been renewed] [both shows are amazing btw], so this collection took a lot longer than expected. Also, this is the last time I'm going to draw a collection of 12.

//And so ends my uber long description. Until next time :wave:

You missed Hades.  He is part of the Parthanon.  Why? I'm just curious

He is but he isn't at the same time.
I was going to draw him and Persephone separately but I haven't yet

I think my two favorites are Hephaestus (pyromaniac here!) and Ares. They're all really nice though! :D
