  • Title: Boreas, God of the Icy North
  • Artist: Melios the Hoplite
  • Description: One of the four Anemoi (wind gods). God of winter, he swept down from the cold northern mountains of Thrake, chilling the air with his icy breath. Boreas and his brother winds were often imagined as horse-shaped gods. Boreas and Zephyros would sweep down upon the mares in early spring and fertilize them in the shape of wind-formed stallions. The horses born from these couplings were the swiftest and finest of their kind.

  • Considering you have no reference and it was an idea wrought from your own mind (which you have admitted below), I can't rate your avy in the cosplay arena. :/ If it were in the original avy arena, however, you would receive a 5/5

  • Sadly, no, there wasn't. Only drawings on a vase that I couldn't use because Gaia doesn't have purple wings. So sorry, no ref pic but this is my idea of an 'elemental Boreas' not his human form.

  • There has got to be some sort of artist rendition of this God somewhere on the internet that you could have put in as the reference picture and based your avi off of that...
