ZEUS by Tyanite ZEUS by Tyanite
GOD IT TOOK ME LONG ENOUGH TO GET HIM A REFERENCE PICTURE
Mainly because I could never get happy with the way he looked in chibi.
WHY YES MY ZEUS IS YOUNG AND HANDSOME AND BLONDE, WADDAYA GONNA DO ABOUT IT? (He IS the youngest original Olympian after all...If Poseidon and Hades don't get the grey-hair facial wrap treatment, neither does Zeus)

Zeus
:bulletyellow: King of Gods, youngest child of Cronus and Rhea, father of too many to count.
:bulletyellow: Married to his sister, Hera, Zeus would like to make out that he doesn't like her at all, but deep down he loves her.
:bulletyellow: He has a bajillion bastard children, way too many to count. And he is also an awful parent.
:bulletyellow: His favorite children are Athena and Apollo. (I told you he was awful, he even has favorites!)
:bulletyellow: Zeus cares a lot for his family, even if he doesn't necessarily show it in the right ways. Once you are in Zeus' circle, you are set for life.
:bulletyellow: Zeus has a thing for powerful women.
:bulletyellow: He isn't necessarily guided by a sense of justice, but Zeus has a strong, inner moral compass that directs his actions. The fact that the compass is broken and bent is a different matter.
:bulletyellow: Zeus never ever cries. EVER. (freebie by ~Pinkiekitty)

Wow, pretty young Zeus. Must have been when he was fighting Typhon!

Haha, poor Zeus, he gets teased mercilessly over this point.
Since the Typhonomachy happens after Zeus rules Olympus and all the Olympians are together, technically this would be the same Zeus?
At least in my interpretation of Zeus, it never made sense to me that he appeared as an older gentleman. ESPECIALLY given how much he gets around. While I understand that a grey-bearded guy is probably going to be trusted to be wiser and a better leader than a kid, Zeus' history with the ladies doesn't seem like he would look as old as their fathers. The Ancient Greeks really idealized the young, athletic, clean-shaven youth, and that is how I chose to design Zeus~
Also, he IS the youngest of all the original Olympians. If none of them get the grey-hair/beard treatment, Zeus shouldn't either.
I figure the Gods have the ability to appear whatever age they want. Other than taking disguises (Like Hera or Demeter appearing as old crones, and Athena and Poseidon taking on the form of many different people during the Trojan War, etc) the Gods seem to be able to purify their body of imperfections and flaws with Ambrosia (As Hera does in the Seduction of Zeus chapter of the Iliad)...Meaning wrinkles and grey hairs. I am sure if they sat around for a long, long time without using Ambrosia, they would probably start to look their age, but luckily they have the miracle aging cream: Ambrosia!
