Innocent, happy little Nico.....I miss those days (but definitely NOT the Mythomagic!)......
pulser375 Featured By Owner Dec 29, 2014
I totally agree. He was so innocent, then in a matter of days, he changed because of all he's been through. I sometimes think experience makes time irrelevant, especially in Nico's case. Even though he is one of the youngest demigod children, I'd consider him a veteran hero.

interesting to see his feelings in a difference of what- five to eight years. younger nico's shadow is nice, too.

Nico Why U Not Understand I Wuv U! I'm in a similar situtuation as he is right now
Seas-of-Emerald Featured By Owner Mar 1, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
Uhggg....I freaking love Nico to death (heh, pardon the pun) but I sometimes wish he was a 'normal' kid. I mean, I know it's what a lot of people like about Nico, with his whole death thing going on, but it really hurts to seem him like this and I just...askjhfi, I don't know anymore...

I think you made  sad dark nico a little too big and strong
sisterofpercy Featured By Owner Dec 20, 2013
what a change
TimberWolfsHowl Featured By Owner Sep 6, 2013  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Yeah, he is the one who changed most in the story. Even after HoO came out he was still my favorite male character after Percy because he just had such a sad story, and how much their world changed him. After seeing how he went from happy to dark, I always wanted to just give him a hug, he needs it :) awesome art by the way!

I miss happy little Nico


grilzrule1010 Featured By Owner Aug 15, 2013
wow he changed a lot...
raisa864 Featured By Owner Aug 13, 2013
Nico has definitely matured, seeing the world for its true value, but at times I feel the need to preserve his innocence, don't you. You depicted it perfectly, with the use of shadows. Good job!
Mistywater2 Featured By Owner Jun 16, 2013
Its so strange how Nico had grown the past few years, and this is from the girl who was mistaken as a 11 year old when she was 8
Whippytwirl Featured By Owner May 15, 2013
For a second, I thought Nico was Hades... He's his splitting images I tell you! Splitting image!
decemberdix Featured By Owner May 12, 2013
Does anybody else see the sort of similarity (both physical and emotional/mental) between Nico DiAngelo and Severus Snape?

There will be no foolish sword-swinging, or silly camp songs in this cabin.

One'a my best friend's twin's name is Nico Newman

Nico's like a blonde version of present Nico di Angelo

IRONICALLY, they roleplay as twin kids of Zeus/Jupiter

The old Nico looks like a male version of us RPing a few years back, when I first met Nico and didn't know his twin Eva

He gave me an RP dagger with a lightning bolt that I still 'use' in roleplay today

Thus, this picture brings back memories

Amazing! ^^

Makdragon8 Featured By Owner Mar 17, 2013  Hobbyist Writer
That's totally true! He's changed a lot! He's still cute though! :)


I don't know why but I was so sad when Nico threw his Mytho magic cards into the fire!

He also went from olive-skinned to ghostly pale. I really find that weird.
MidnightSkye123 Featured By Owner Dec 19, 2012  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Happy little Nico is cute, and older, creepier, sadder, taller, version of Nico...well, you get the point. Nico's still just as an amazing character. :)
