.: Submission for #Cirque-des-Reves Greek Gods / Heroes Event :.

O-okai I must admit, I didn't think this would be SO MUCH FUN to draw. Thankyou so much =Lolalaan for making such a cool event! It's gorgeous ~ ; v ;

I don't really care how it turned out //silently weeps away// Actually, I do, but hell there's nothing I can do about it now :iconmingplz:
Kroe, just -- forgive me for chopping up a sex god. AGAIN.

Wow I was really inspired to get some symbols into this drawing;; I don't know why, but I believe all these antique legends and stories are automatically linked to some kind of symbols and their deeper meaning. // awkwardly points to the background-//HIT

other than that, the background style was heavily influenced by czech art nouveau artist Alphonse Mucha. I just simply LOVE his paintings and literally EVERYTHING about his works. my dad even got me a big calendar with his best works and I'm literally staring at it all day long and drooling over how elegant and perfect all of his paintings are---
If you don't know who that man is, GO AND GOOGLE HIM. I COMMAN-/kicked
No srsly. That guy is a genius. you should check him out.

Ansel as Erebos :iconholyshitohmygodplz: and Aceline as Hedone. I don't think there is any direct link between those two gods in the old legends, BUT HELL IN MY HEAD THERE IS ;;; Also, only in Mello's headcanon Ansel is a peaceful, perfectly serene guy -- *COUGH COUGH*

ALSO ::: A BIG BIIIG THANKYOU TO EVERYBODY WHO JOINED ME ON LIVESTREAM!!!
It was so much fun with you guys, and I hope you enjoyed is as much as I did <3 Hope you saw how long my coloring takes and how cr*ppy it turns out in the end bwahahaa;; I love you fo' that <3 , MAN WITH A G HAHAHAHAHA;;; DON'T THINK I FORGOT THAT
