“We only fail when we stop trying.” 🌞APOLLO is one of the most important and complex of the Olympian deities in classical Greek and Roman religion and mythology. The national divinity of the Greeks, Apollo has been variously recognized as a god of archery, music and dance, truth and prophecy, healing and diseases, the sun and light, poetry, and more. Apollo is the son of Zeus and Leto, and has a twin sister, the chaste huntress Artemis. Seen as the most beautiful god and the ideal of the kouros (a beardless, athletic youth), Apollo is considered to be the most Greek of all gods. 😍☀️• GREEK GODS AND GODDESSES SERIES EP. 6
Isn’t he hot? Holy shit😂 I remember a quote from Thalia in Rick Riordan’s book talking about how hot Apollo is and Percy replied to her, saying, “he is the sun god,” and he took it literally and that wasn’t what Thalia meant.😭😂 HONESTLY, A MOOD. So, painting/drawing the hottest Greek God, I combined him with Evan Peters @evanpeters 😍 this is honestly connected to my sun fanart of Evan, the one that was a counterpart of Cody being a moon. If you can’t remember, I can show you the art comparison of the two by swiping left.
This is honestly my most favourite art that I have ever done for my AHS stars as Greek Gods/Goddesses series. ♥️ The sun is so beautiful in so many ways. You can’t literally gaze at it for so long because it can blind you but seeing from far away, it’s so captivating on how the sun can attract people, on how it’s so interesting that people would still try to stare at it even though it’s stupidly hard to do so, on how it can brighten up everybody’s mood and on how it’s just up in the sky and yet it can be a metaphor in any situation. Evan is so gorgeous as well. He has this bright personality and beautiful masculinity that makes me quickly picture him as Apollo. I love the background that I did so much, it’s kind of similar with Athena’s. I love the tattoo that I placed on his chest and the headpiece. Literally, this turned out super great and I didn’t expect it to not flop this time. I expressed through any other artworks on how I adore Evan, both as a person and as an actor. And y’all already know about it. ☀️
