When you hear the name “Poseidon”, you automatically think of Greek god of the sea. Poseidon was son to Cronus and Rhea, and his siblings are Hades, Demeter, Hera, Hestia, and Zeus. He was said to be visually stimulating having the strong image of a god. Most images depict Poseidon as being a merman in some cases, and in other times he is a strong looking man that sits in a throne holding his trident, and wearing a simple looking crown. Looking at Greek art you will see various images of him but the most common show him riding on a chariot that is sometimes constructed to look like a big snail shell, and it is pulled by sea horses. He was also associated with dolphins, and even though he was one of the Olympian gods that lived on Mount Olympus, he spent most of his time in his coral sea. In Roman mythology, Neptune holds almost the identical stature, and even though they have two different names, the belief and tales are very similar. Many ancient Greeks believed that out of the fifteen Gods, only three ruled the world. Divided into three sections, Zeus was god and ruler of the heavens and earth, Poseidon was ruler of the water both salt and fresh water, and Hades was obviously the god of the underworld. Having said all this basic knowledge of the king of the seas, I guess you figured out that this tutorial is going to show you "how to draw Poseidon", step by step. Like I said before, there is many images of this God, I myself drew him the way I perceive him to be. He is virtually a merman to me, and his trident is a recognizable trademark that makes this ruler stand out. I do hope you enjoy this tutorial because I put some good work into him. Now I have Zeus, Hades, and Poseidon in the Greek myth section. Whenever you want to draw Greek gods, you can now pick and choose between some really cool ones. Peace out people, and remember to keep on drawing and having a fun time when doing so. No matter what you do in life, if you love it, you will enjoy what you do.
