Commissioned Portrait of Hades, God of the Ambiguously Defined Underworld!

Commissioned Portrait of Hades, God of the Ambiguously Defined Underworld!

Hades is the fourth commission I’ve done and the fifth character to be done by Reiesu. Hades was the natural next choice. In a way, Hades was probably the easiest to articulate for me. I had a strong reference and idea for pose. Which was like how I was for the Humans too, actually…is that a coincidence? I think not!

Well, anyway, the results, in the end, were awesome!

Great start to Hades! It pretty much nails his aesthetic!

My comments/thoughts:

Subsequent Previews

THE COOKIES! LOOK AT THOSE COOKIES! I don’t have anything else to say besides that, really. I mean, those cookies totally steal the picture. Okay, okay, I do have a few other things to say.

The Final Artwork!

Hades, God of the Ambiguously Defined Underworld, is totally encapsulated in this artwork! Happy, baked goods, but looking a bit weathered. He’s a great compliment to the Marcus and Jessica artwork. I could see them chilling out together. I can really see this as Hades! And that is a resounding success! I love it!
