I love her tablet, there is so much information on there. All of these redesigns of the pantheon are great!June 5, 2015 at 9:18 am #125084June 5, 2015 at 1:03 pm #125092
Holy crap! That came out of HeroMachine? One of the coolest ideas (and execution) I’ve ever seen. The glassy sheen really adds to the overall feel.June 6, 2015 at 6:52 am #125140
Glad you like it! I had a good reference picture… 😉
Now, to finish up my greek gods modernization.
This is Aphrodite, goddess of love, beauty and desire:
Arriving in the modern day world, Aphrodite, as a rather hedonistic goddess, used her special „talents“ to build up an „Empire of Love“. Or at least that‘s what she called her first brothel in the 1940s New York. Today, in the 21st century she operates a highly prestigious matchmaking service for the upper class, which simultaneously serves as a cover for a thriving deluxe escort agency that provides high class call girls and call boys to financially well situated and politically influential clients all over the world. This way she became one of the most sought-after personalities of Hollywood, Washington and New York‘s Upper West Side – albeit behind closed doors.
Her ex-husband is Hephaistos, god of fire, the forge, smiths and metalworking, and the weapons-maker of Olympus:
Not the most handsome of the gods and accidentally crippled by his own mother in a fit of rage, Hephaistos was always an outsider of sorts and prefered a solitary life as a smith renowned for his skills in inventing flawless weapons and traps. Arriving in the 21st century, he consequently became the world leader in the development of munitions and a major supplier of arms for both corporate and government concerns. Nearly all of Ares‘ „Blackwater Worldwide“ ordnance and equipment is based on Hephaistos‘ technology. Aggressively developing new technologies, Hephaistos‘ company now starts to branch out into other scientific fields including robotics, nano-technology and fringe science.June 6, 2015 at 6:54 am #125141
And last, but not least, there is Herakles, god of strength and labors:
Due to the never-ending quarrel between him and his wicked stepmother Hera, the openly bisexual Herakles has a rather reserved relationship with his father and his company. Despite the fact that he is one of the main shareholders of the EOS Corporation, his involvement in the company is marginal. Instead he concentrates his business ambitions entirely on his chain of boxing gyms, fitness centers and health clubs across the country.June 6, 2015 at 7:13 am #125143
Excellent! I really like the modern Greek god interpretations and the Hamburg device is wickedly cool.June 7, 2015 at 12:43 pm #125224
Thanks buddy! I’m happy that the tablet made the second place in the contest …
Now working on the profile cards for my 50 state heroes (anybody remember those?), I realized that some of them desperately need to be revised. So, let’s get started then, shall we?!June 7, 2015 at 12:45 pm #125225June 7, 2015 at 1:14 pm #125226
Nice ImprovementJune 7, 2015 at 1:16 pm #125227
Do you have an older gallery somewheres?June 8, 2015 at 11:18 am #125268June 8, 2015 at 11:18 am #125269June 11, 2015 at 10:56 am #125432
Two years ago I created a modern version of the public domain character “Fighting Yank” and of course today I’m no longer entirely happy with that design. So I decided to revisit him and keep him at least a little bit closer to the original this time. I think the new design turned out pretty well without throwing everything from the old design overboard. What do you guys/gals say? 😉
