Mob Gods by OhSadface Mob Gods by OhSadface
So I had been watching to much Boardwalk empire and read to much Lackadaisy and thought it would be fun to apply Greek gods to like 30’s Esq settings. Via bootleggers and gangsters. There is no telling If I will ever do anything with these characters they were all sort of a “Just for fun” thing but who knows. I actually really tried to apply appropriate personalities and jobs and elements to the designs here. I wonder if people will notice some hidden ones. Enjoy!
In order minor character descriptions.
• Zeus – Sort of a Big show aging Mob boss with a thousand and one mistresses.
• Hera –Zeus’s cold hearted loveless wife. Cause no one likes Hera. lol
• Poseidon – A salty wharf master. Probably does a lot of illegal shipments for his brother Zeus.
• Demeter- Owner of a greenhouse and florist shop.
• Persephone- Daughter to Demeter works in the flower shop.
• Hades- A sleazy lowlife with a strong heart. Does dirty work for the boss when needed, and fauns over Persephone.
• Artemis –Con artist. Twin brother is Apollo.
• Apollo –Con artist with his sister. Instrument of choice, mandolin.
• Hephaestus- Blacksmith/ mechanic. Is wheel chair bound and married to Aphrodite.
• Aphrodite- Barfly vixen. Sleeps around.
• Ares – Haven’t decided if he’s a rival boss to Zeus or not. Slept with his sister Aphrodite. Cause Greeks were all about incest yo.
• Hermes – News boy/ snitch.
• Hecate- Gypsy.
• Hestia – Inn owner.
• Athena- Arms dealer, intellectual.
• Dionysus-Bar/vineyard owner.

A mob boss with weird sexual fetishes? Somehow that makes perfect sense. =D

I was wondering about Athena's birth, actually. Mayhap they are actually Lovecraftian horrors who spawn their young by mitosis? Also, Zeus and his "golden shower" would be much more hilarious this time around, eh?

This too hilarious. Now that I think about it, this would totally be the way that they would look like in a mob world. Being a mythology fan, this really is a pleasure to consider.

Soooo, are they all rapey, rapey, incest up the wazoo like in the original stories, too? But yeah, this is just too perfect. Hephaestus looks so huggable, Hecate looks so nasty, and Athena would be all prim and proper. I love it!

lol XD Thanks, and Apollo IS a sexy prick :D I DO NEED TO DRAW MORE OLD THINKGS! And fat people... I don't do it enough..And I actually REALLY liked this Dionysus hes so swarthy XD Although he got redesigned like 3 times.. First he was jolly fat guy, then like super skinny prettyboy and kinda looked like a Kit character XD and then I just went for jolly swarthy sneaky little dapper gent. Someone who you could bribe for info but not stupid.

And thanks!!! I actually sort of did all of this to prove to myself I can push variety in characters in general. I still haven't reached the potential I want but i'm a million times closer then before. And lol a tutorial might be fun :D I wish PaMikoo did one. like you said shes sooooooo great with variety!!!

Poseidon's hot, Persephone just turned me lesbian, Apollo looks like a sexy prick, Hermes looks like someone I know and love and its awesome cuz he's one of the coolest greek gods XD, Hestia- you draw old women so aweosmely you should do more, Athena looks like someone Kit would want to spank him, and Dionysus looks like someone you'd wind up marrying (in a good way). The end XDD

Seriously though, these are fricken fantastic. I love how you draw women, always have. But I love that you give them SO ooooo much variety. You do what so few artists ever can, and that's give women characters proper personality. I can seriously only think of a few others, ~PaMikoo included, but it'd be great for you to do a tutorial (like in the style of that hilarious tf2 women one XD) about how women can have variety too.
