Olympians by MessengerSelece Olympians by MessengerSelece
Here they are! Not THE 12 Olympian gods, but 10 of them plus Hades.

This was for my Design for Illustration class. The project was symbols. I chose the Greek Gods. :]

They're in this order because it looked the best.

I think they'd be cool as fact cards.

In case you have NO idea who they are:
Poseidon Zeus Hera Apollo Ares
Athena Artemis Hades Hephaestus Hermes

I chose to go with a 2 color...color scheme because it looked the nicest.

The animals behind them are their sacred animals. Now, I KNOW some of them don't make sense, but hey, I'M not the Ancient Greeks. I didn't make the rules or myths. I just follow them.

Hope you like them!

Please don't steal, reproduce, or use these without my permission.

EDIT: Now, I'm not saying that I don't appreciate comments, but really? I don't really care if you think that Ares' animal should be a boar or that Apollo's animal should be raven. I chose what I did because every god has a mile long LIST of animals that are sacred to them. I chose a vulture because I didn't want to draw a boar, and I chose a dolphin because I didn't want 3849723849 birds in the piece. I did what I wanted and that's that, ok?

NICE drawing!!! I love Greek mythology (my fav. Olympian deity is Artemis), and I'm lovin' here your realistic drawing style fused with creative clothing designs.

If you're interested, I drew something similar (feedback welcome^_^!): [link]

Keep up the good work :)

I love this work; the colors, the form, the animals. Overall, great job! ^^

However, isn't Hades a non-Olympian? :/

Just an FYI, Zeus' bird was the golden eagle, not the bald eagle. Nice work!
