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 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!
