Daughter of Chaos by bennic7 Daughter of Chaos by bennic7
Okay, so: this is Nyx (greek goddess, personification of the Night) she's supposed to be standing at the begging/edge of creation, so i made her walk and create. 
her dress is supposed to be the night, but it looks more like the universe (damn watercolors!) 
I can thank Rick Riordan for this weird obsession i have with mythology, but i'll be sincere, the nyx he wrote about,  was not like i pictured her at all. that's not good. that's why i decided to recreate her! yey. 

and i don't know what else to write. i'm not inspired today. so, bye.

Wow! This looks beautiful! I really love how you did the colors and her dress, also when I imagined Nyx from mythology this was more of the image I had. : D So you did a great job! ...I haven't actually READ House of Hades but thanks to Tumblr I already know what happens |D, but I didn't know that Rick portrayed Nyx as a ..Bad character, along with making her a bit dumb O__O...

I did a project on Nyx two years ago and I loved her. Like her daughter, Nemesis, she's neither good nor evil, just a sort of in-between. She's both elegant and mysterious, dangerous and beautiful. I don't think Rick did her justice,

Oh my gosh yes! I feel the same exact way one all of this and all of what you said. It's all Riordan's fault for my love of history and the Nyx he created seemed so.... Bad....

I really like the way you drew her! Her dress is amazing and I like the idea of her creating the night! This is so amazing I can't put it into words! Amazing job!

It is nice, I mean before I didn't even like reading.

 

Yeah, I don't think Nyx would be so stupid to fall for that considering the whole with age comes knowledge. And she's one of the oldest!

 

And no problem dude! :D
