Orion: Hey Artemis, come here!
Artemis: No, you come here.
I have no idea where this goes in my story… all I know is at this point it’s pretty obvious Orion remembers who he is, because he’s being the cocky dude all the myths talk about. Also, Artemis knows… and she seems to have forgiving him for pretending not to know her (did I explained this to you already? No? I will… I just don’t know how yet - It is related to this).
Is she wearing his shirt around her waist? Wait, who said that?
You can stop reading now, from now on is only me rambling about the art itself…
So, I kind of went in a different direction with this one. Instead of spending all of my wits shading the characters like I did in the first one, I kind of went for a more relaxed line art (relying on my character chart, I mean, I already drew that, the less I can do is use it!).
Anyhow, I think that was I was able to go for a little more detail in the background (with god as my witness, I will get good at drawing environments, even if it kills me).
Jason spent his time traveling between both camps as a kind of ambassador to help keep them on good terms so they didn’t fall back into their old habits of hating and distrusting each other. The struggle with Gaea had changed Jason. He wasn’t entirely Roman or Greek, but that made him the perfect bridge between the two. It was on one of his visits to Camp Half-Blood that Nico decided to try and believe that Jason was his friend. They went walking in the strawberry fields and Nico told him about his conversation with Percy. Jason was supportive and said he was proud of Nico for being brave again.
“You know you’ll find someone, right?” He asked, looking over at Nico. The sun was just right with the camp’s controlled weather and they were sneaking strawberries when the satyrs weren’t looking.
“I know it probably doesn’t feel like it now, but you’ll meet someone just as good as Percy.” He bit into another strawberry and watched Nico, wondering if he said the right thing.
“Maybe,” Nico said, “I…” The younger boy shook his head in frustration. Jason snatched another strawberry and waited for Nico to continue.
“What Percy said? About Annabeth? He said she fills his head and he can’t think about anyone else. But…that’s how I feel about him.”
He looked so dejected and hurt and it made Jason feel horrible for him. He reached up and put an arm around Nico’s shoulders. And they walked that way for a while, talking and swiping strawberries until Jason got caught and the satyrs used their reed pipes to chase them out of the fields with swatting vines.
no but really percy jackson has been such a huge part of my life for such a long time i’m not prepared for it to end
