Apollo by redheaded-step-child Apollo by redheaded-step-child
Apollo, twin brother to the lunar Goddess, Artemis [link] and son of Zeus and Leto. The Archer God, Apollo is often described as the "most Greek" of all Gods, and is associated with the Sun, music, prophecy, healing and truth. It is said that there is no darkness in him, and that false words never pass his lips.

My first God piece! My New Years resolution was to start painting males, because I find them incredibly difficult, so I'm pretty happy with this one! :aww:

Stock used for Apollo came from the unbelievably helpful and tasteful nude stock of

Ah, Apollo, the god of light music and reason! He is one of my other favorites out of the main 13 and he's almost like Zeus in a couple of ways. They both have powers dealing with life or death ( Zeus with his Thunderbolts and Apollo with his healing/sickening powers), they are both considered very good-looking for their age group, they both have love affairs with mortals and other almost immortals and are womanisers! When a girl turns on them, they also punish them heavily for it (Apollo with Corinis). I also love how you made his background the sun and his sisters background is the moon to show the difference, even though they are twins. Beautiful painting!

Apollo is the God of Light, Music and Medicine. Helios is the real God of the Sun.

thats true, but, apoolo is also a god of the sun, and artemis is the god of the moon.
u can say:
moon side ->artemis
sun side ->apollo

they travel whit the moon and the sun, thats why apollo= the 'god of the sun' ;)
