C: A Twist in the Myth by geekgirl8 C: A Twist in the Myth by geekgirl8
Commissioned by :iconrenee-niels:.

Got the title from an album of one of my favorite bands. XDD urg finally finished this thing.....took forever....:iconlazepoolplz:

Here we have her OCs Jormungandr, Eris the Gorgon, and Apep, all characters with basis in some kind of mythology, just having some hijinks together. Guess Jormun doesn't like being reminded he's just the SON of a god. XDD Hope ya like it!

... This makes me think that it'd be fun to see the heroes of Ancient Greece hanging out with the pantheon. The very idea of mythical beings squabbling over who's ranked higher is fun (and one reason why Ancient Greek, Norse, and other mythologies are wonderfully fun :3). The god's look in the last panel is fantastic ^_^

Poor Apep's going to be a regular victim of abuse from his fellow villains... Given that the sun rises every morning, he's doomed to fail to kill Re every night. =w=

... The Greek monsters like Eris just try to ignore the Olympians since they're bastards, the lot of them... <XD

And as for Jormungandr... ... Well, let's just say that being released before Ragnarok might not worry him as much as it should. XDc

There's SOME with some concepts I've toyed around in my gallery (Dangerous Fantasies.) And I'm working on another character... A really obscure creature from Danish mythology called the Kaster. humon.deviantart.com/art/Kaste…

Woo! I shall have to check them out!

Danish mythology? That reminds me that I should really brush up on my mythologies in general (I'm familiar with Greek, Roman, Norse, and a little Egyptian (<3 the fact that the Greeks told the Egyptians that the Egyptian gods and goddesses were just the Greek ones in disguise, having left the Greeks for a time. Happle Tea is a wonderful comic that focuses on different cultures and mythos (you're probably familiar with it, but just in case you're not, there it is).

Yep. This weekend shall be filled with reading!

Huh... the only thing I'm remembering about Roman mythology in terms of divine figures and creatures is that it's all based on what the Greeks had... and I think they adopted Isis, too... and probably other Egyptian deities... I wonder if they appropriated any lore from Carthage.  Other than the wolf with Romulus and Remus, the only lore I can think of focuses on people

I like that the Norse would just think that all those immortal gods and goddesses were just cowards. Meanwhile Odin, Thor, and the rest would be laying down their lives to slow down the end of the world :-D
