Hypnos in blue jeans

Pencil drawing on A4 paper. In Greek mythology, Hypnos was the god of sleep. His twin brother was Thanatos (Death) and their mother was the goddess Nyx (Night). Hynos has always been my favourite mythological character and I like the idea of Sleep and Death being related somehow. Could also because I have a thing for twin brothers. Tradionally he should have his eyes closed but I guess we don't have to stick to the rules. (Click to enlarge)

I like your drawings very much! You're skilled when it comes to shadows & light, and proportions.

Embrace life!
Ciao.

How HOT is Hypnos?
Looks Like a Very Moody Greek boy with piercing blue eyes that I used to date...I think his name was Nakdarios.
I use the term 'date' loosely.
Ahem.
Baby makes his blue jeans talk.
Oh, and the proportions and shading are pretty cool too.
