Percy Jackson, Son of Poseidon by izziwizVIII Percy Jackson, Son of Poseidon by izziwizVIII
So I decided to draw Percy Jackson from the PJO ( Percy Jackson and the Olympians and HoO (Heroes of Olympus) books because I LOVE THEM SO MUCH <33 I'm obsessed o.o 
But yes, I like the films and all but the books are just the best! They actually make the film look crap xD They're so different! Anyway, for this reason I wanted to draw Percy realistically... not as Logan Lerman, but as I see him in the books...

I quote Hazel in Son of Neptune: 'Even though he was beat up, dirty, and stooped with exhaustion, he’d had an aura of power. He had the good looks of a Roman god, with sea-green eyes and wind blown black hair.'

So here you go, Percy realistic-ish :dummy: I still think he looks slightly cartoony but I tried xD Now I think I'm going to draw the rest of the seven (Hazel, Frank, Leo, Jason and Piper) & Nico because he's such a wonderful character to read about (:

If you don't know who Percy Jackson is I recommend THE BOOKS not the films. Okay.

I used 3h, 2b and 4b pencils with some watercolour and white acrylic paint for the water effect, small rubber for highlights, tissue for smudging

Hope you like it anyway! :)

This is so perfect! Also, it really coincides with Viria's Percy, just more realistic.

That was my aim, I love Viria's work and I love one of her percy drawings and the pose he was in so I decided to try it realistically (: And thank you!

You very good at using your shading to describe emotion. His expression is laidback and you're shading here is nice and soft.I think I've fainted. I think I've fainted.
