"Hades" I was suddenly overcome with an idea yesterday and had to sketch it out, so here it is, my take on the Greek god of the underworld, Hades. I also realize it works perfectly with @shirogiku ‘s #shirosfavstory event!!! 👏👏👏 (last picture is my reasons for being inspired) This is my take on Hades’ story and appearance:
"After the fall of the Titans, the three brothers drew lots for the realms they would rule, Zeus became king of the sky and lands, Poseidon king of sea and waters, leaving Hades with the dark and barren underworld. Despite his feelings of being cheated by his older brothers, Hades sunk into the world below, the only light being the flames of his fire. Centuries passed, Hades lonely rule and harsh surroundings began to shape his form into something more unearthly. His skin greyed and hardened into scales, the glorious crystal feathers of his wings became scorched by flames and the skin beneath toughened like leather. His once luxurious locks which resemble the night sky, thinned and lost its shine, eyes once like the universe themselves melted into jealous green, despising his fellow gods above, spoiled by the riches of their creations. Finally, his mind overcome with the need of power, grew black horns and shaped them into a crown, symbolizing his self coronation, bending to the will of the realm he was forced to reside. The few times Hades ever rose from the realm below, the other gods and mortals were stunned by his appearance, he was no longer the beautiful and enchanting brother, but Hades, the unseen one."
