Percy Jackson, The Demigod Files

Character Design is one of my favorite things in Illustration. I love portraits and the possibility to capture the characters psychology and mood is always challenging. In this kind of images there is no scene depicted and not much of a setting behind them so they have to tell it all by themselves. It's been a while since I designed this group of characters as supporting graphic material for the Percy Jackson series. They've been used basically online on Disney and author Rick Riordan's websites but for my satisfaction they've been also published in The Demigod Files and Percy Jackson and the Olympians: The Ultimate Guide. Here go a few of them. I've keep working in this type of material during the last few years with Hyperion Books for Children in the series Heroes of Olympus and The Kane Chronicles. We have increased the complexity of the images, it's getting better with every new character.
