Sketchbook Sneak Peek: Hades
For the past few weeks I've been hard at work on Olympians Book 4: Hades (tentatively subtitled The Wealthy One) so lately I've been logging a lot of sketchbook time trying to cement the look of the titular bad boy himself, Hades. I've drawn him before of course-- he plays a fairly prominent role in Zeus: King of the Gods, for instance-- but this is his first time stepping into a starring role, and as a result he has to look just right. Here are a few of my more recent, more successful depictions of the gloomy god of the Underworld.
