Alternate Demon Sketch - Atlas by Bhurloka12 Alternate Demon Sketch - Atlas by Bhurloka12
Reason for Redraw: an attempt to show him holding up something. I forgot to ink in the rest of his sandal, oops.

Fun fact: in classical mythology, Atlas never held up the earth. He instead was said to hold up the heavens, which people believed at the time to be something like a dome over the earth (making the motion of the stars Atlas' doing as he turned the inside of the dome). I think the "holding up the earth" myth in modern culture stems from this sculpture ancientrome.ru/art/artwork/scu…, as the markings on it represent the constellations.

Element: Wind
Description:

One of the Titans who battled the Olympians. Because of this and the defeat of the Titans, Zeus condemned him to forever hold up the skies.
