Olympians Book 3, Hera: The Goddess and Her Glory is finally coming out July 19th. To commemorate this momentous occasion I will be posting a drawing from my enormous cache of sketchbooks each weekday until Hera hits the shelves. I'll be going through them chronologically, with today's piece coming from a sketchbook from sometime in latish 2006.
Today's piece is of the Kind of the Sea himself, Poseidon. He was one of those designs that I arrived at more or less completely right away-- though he's since lost the crown. Too Triton-ey from Disney's The Little Mermaid. I've been drawing a lot of the Earth-shaker lately, as I'm in the middle of writing Olympians Book 5, all about Poseidon.
