hades and persephone 1 by sandara hades and persephone 1 by sandara
uhmmmm since people are asking...

these 2 are hades and persephone, just prior to him abducting her. (thats' why he's staring like that)

i don't know if i'll finish up the pic... this roughwork thingy seems to be growing into a new style. i think i'll go back and fix his cloak though... it looks funny.

To me this shows a more sympathetic version of the God of the Underworld. Hades in the classical myths was always depicted as this dark and foreboding character not because he was inherently evil like modern takes of him, but because this is the god of an aspect of life no one wants to explore or be involved with. In fact, it's kinda funny how whenever there is a story with Greek elements, the main villain is most of the time Hades while in comparison to his younger siblings Zeus and Poseidon, he's one of the more level-minded and even fairer gods.

After all, Poseidon is famous for raping Medusa in Athena's temple causing her to turn into the infamous monster while Zeus is famous for countless upon countless acts of adultery, two of the most famous cases was when he transformed himself into a swan rapes a woman named Leda and of course when he fathered Hercules but did nothing to prevent his torment at the hands of his wife Hera. Yet the worst thing Hades has ever down was kidnap Persephone and made her his wife, something that seems honestly tame in comparison to most of the things his brothers did and he did it for a more deep reason then just lust: He was honestly in love with her and being the God of the Underworld, the one place that even the gods would avoid entering without a good reason, made him feared by the other gods.

So seeing these two seeing each other and setting forth the events that will eventually lead to the creation of the seasons is not only inspiring but amazing as well. It could have been easy to depict Hades as this demonic overlord-like being but to see him while threatening and intimidating look human shows that you put a lot of thought into this. And of course Persephone looks perfect as well, being the goddess of Growth and Spring she reminds me of a fay or another woodland spirit and her bright, colorful nature contrasting with Hades's dark and bleak aura makes her stand out even more sharping the contrast of the two. 

In other words it is one of the most amazing pieces on this site.

lol, in theater we did a play that had featured these two and the story was very revised, in the play, zeus helps hades take her to the underworld, etc and demeter gets angry with them because all of the plant life is dying, and so on, etc etc

This reminds me a wise dialog.
Life and Death share a conversation.
Life-Death, please tell me. Why everybody loves me and hate you.
Death-Because you are a sweet lie and I'm bitter truth.
