Hades by DerMonkey Hades by DerMonkey
first version of a hades interpretation for uni project. theme is underworld. i set it into deep sea; because we know even less about those places than about space...
i upped the original sketch along with steps on my artblog, the cookieden [link]
merely a speedpaint at this point, arround 2-3 hours i think.
enjoy!

//edit: some of you talked about the color combination, it's actually inspired by nature; to be more precisely from Vampyroteuthis infernalis 1:50, BBC-doku
or [link]
that thing is so fucking beautiful :o

//edit: touched this one up: [link]

Good work with the theme of the Underworld - I think it's the first time I see it associated with the deep sea. Beautiful coloring and I love the eels around Hades.

I like it. I wish I had something more to say (I hate giving generic comments), but I haven't really. Looks almost like a concept for a videogame character.

Awesome colour choice! I like how you managed to actually give it a unique look even if it's just, as you say, a speedpaint lol. Also the lighting is well done, good job on that part. :thumbsup:

Do we really know less about deep sea than about space?

and this is only the beginning :D
you should definitely go check out the entire bbc documentation "planet earth". it's like 8 dvds or so, all in hd. the deepsea episode is my favorite ;)
and the chimps in the rainforrest, who form an entire society. hell, they even wage wars against other groups :o they're just so damn human...
or the fungus, which infests insects and interacts with their 'brains' to make them climb up the trees so it gets more sunlight... sick nature :wow:
