AFTER THE FALLOUT 6 - POSEIDON by Titanslicer AFTER THE FALLOUT 6 - POSEIDON by Titanslicer
Final version of Poseidon, god of seas.
I thought to give a snapshot of a sort of modern myth of Atlantis. As the legendary city, the modern self-tainted civilization is devasted by the vengeful power of nature (incarnated by Poseidon). Technology has made the Earth rot... and the Earth takes back what men had stolen.

On the center of his chest, Poseidon has the simbol of Atlantis (3 rings of water, alternating two rings of earth) crossed with the biohazard and trident symbols.

The firestorm reminds the vulcanic explosion of mount Thera (today known as Santorini) which had signed the end of the minoan civilization (recognized by many as the "real" Atlantis).

History is spot on prefect, the design on chest looks off, but its your take on the god not mine. Love mythology

I love the glowing hair and tatoos against the darker skin- quite the graphic statement

There's not a lot of scenes that describe an epic (expansive and detailed at the same time, soemthing not exactly seen often and always breath-taking at the same time) scene such as this, so congratulations on being original.

Too bad the picture doesn't make any sense. It's not much of a water-god if you've decided to put down fireballs in the Armageddon "to-do" list. It's as if you've gotten bored of simply fucking everyone's shit up with tsunamis and decided to shove another dildo "up there" just to demonstrate the point that you absolutely own their shit.

It's a good picture, but melding Poseidon and Ifrit so they can crush the local heretic orphanaged wasn't necessary, just hilarious. Great detail all the same.

Your critique is valuable. But based on a wrong belief... Poseidon, in NOT a water-god. Yes, he's the god of seas, but with his tridents he also con unleash terrible earthquakes and vulcanic exposions. As mentioned in the description, the firestorm must remind the eruption of mount Thera, that destroyed minoan civilization.

In the ancient myth, Poseidon has gained his rule over the seas and water, by a simple dice draw with his brothers Zeus and Hades. So he's not a pure water-god. Even if it's true... i represented him with a water-body, but only to make him a sort of incarnation of the raging sea.

Anyway, thank you very much for your time.

note he's the god of the seas and earth quacks. A volcano does make sense (shake a dorment volcano and it explodes; simple science and it's worse if it's an active volcano and there are countless under the sea). You did good on this one. Yeah I know my greek myths (or at least try to be up to date).

but going back the difference between the greek gods and the titans was probably the titans ruled with chaos while the greek gods ruled with order (the world was from less before zeus reshaped it).

It was made out of pity for the poor civilization. Don't worry, it's not like I'm taking points off for being awesome or anything like that ;)
