I absolutely love the myth of Persephone and Hades. I was searching for a picture of the pair when I came across this. As soon as I saw the longing in Hades, the need to touch her, my thoughts of this myth were blown out of the water. So much compassion and desire in one face.... You are an absolutely amazing artist, keep it up!!!
