Ares by TaekwondoNJ Ares by TaekwondoNJ
Ares, the God of savage war and bloodlust. It took me a loooong time to get a design on this guy that wasn't too generic, that I actually liked. Originally he was going to be in a more arctic environment, but this seemed more fitting.

He makes me think of Heimdall, the north god keeper of the Bifrost.

I think it looks more Norse than Greek, but he still looks badass seeing as he wasn't exactly "honorable" he was despised by the rest of the gods.

Also...BLOOD FOR THE BLOOD GOD! (Couldn't resist a Warhammer reference) xD

I agree, but I still love it and maybe this is how Ares would have look like in the Dark Ages(You know, the time when the Vikings appear).

It might just be me and my obsession with all things Warhammer, but he reminds me a little of a chaos warrior, but its great.

This looks like a Chinese version of Ares. It's good, though, just not like the Ares of Greek Myth.

Dougalops, I am sorry but your first comment was Moronic.Ares is the God of Savage Warfare and He was Born of Hera and Zeus.Athena was born of a Titaness and Zeus, but she was born in the wierdest of ways, By Piercing her spear at Zeus' skull until he got Hepheastus to split his head open, and she popped out fully Clad in Greek battle armor.

Nicely done, and i believe that fire and red suit the "God of war" better than a frozen wasteland my good man. It shall be fav'd and thrown into my Zodiac favorites because despite the fact hes the greek god of war, hes also perfect for something else i have coming up. Ill inform you when i get all 12.

For what it's worth am very glad you tried to give him a non-generic look, many depictions of Ares have him in traditional greek armour, you've broken from tradition and it looks great XD

Mr. Jean, is it?,

I'm interested in using your art of Ares, as well as Artemis, in a couple of pieces I'm doing. As i understand, your art has been used in card art before (which is why I'm not going to ask for Hephaestus). I am going to take a FEW liberties with the idea of the card (which doesnt mean ill change the art at all, i won't. trust me on that) like changing Ares to Mars (just because i WAS going to use hephaestus as vulcan but since hes used already i want originality so no) and that'd actually be it.

are you okay with the use of your art for cards?

thank you.
