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.

This is my favorite depiction of Hades and Persephone. In most depictions she is represented as looking resigned, sad, and helpless, but the way you portrayed her as looking defiant and refusing to be intimidated is perfect. 

Making Hades look like Jareth doesn't hurt either. :)

Just to hint at my age- Hades reminds me a bit of Moorcock's Elric of Melniboné.

In so many tellings of this story, Persephone is portrayed as a naïf -- almost innocence personified. I much prefer your Persephone, well-aware that this stranger warrants some suspicion. Though Hades is the god here, they appear more as equals -- or at least, that she believes they are equals. I'm reminded of the Bruce Springsteen line, "I looked straight at her and she looked straight back."

Not sure if you're aware of it, but someone appears to have "borrowed" this image for a quiz. >>>www.playbuzz.com/amandapond10/… Figured I'd give you the heads'up just in case it was without permission. Have a good day!
