Good Luck by Spectaculoid Good Luck by Spectaculoid
"'But...he knew me as a baby.'

'No, honey. He knew I was expecting a baby, but he never saw you. He had to leave before you were born.'

I tried to square that with the fact that I seemed to remember...something about my father. A warm glow. A smile," (Riordan 38-9).


Poseidon saying goodbye and good luck to baby Percy. And maybe a bit of, "I'm sorry." I kind of imagine that in the middle of the night, some time when Percy was just a baby, Poseidon magically transported himself into their house and lifted Percy from his crib to see him just once. And they would lock eyes with each other, baby Percy oblivious to who this man is and what that will mean in his life.

You did a great job. The man does look like Poseidon. I love how you used shading to create texture. Poseidon's face captures the moment perfectly!

Thank you! When I read it, it was doubly sad because I initially interpreted it as a false memory. Like he wanted something to remember him by, but it wasn't real - don't know how he'd remember anything as a baby anyway, but yeah.

That part was kind of sad, how Percy couldn't remember anything about his dad but that smile. Your drawing is really good, by the way!
