You were the one who did this??? I've had this as my desktop background forever and anytime someone sees it they can't help but stare. I love it. Everyone loves it. This picture reaches my soul.
I said it before and i will say it again: this is my favourite view of Hades and I must say that I'm really influenced by your view. Really, I can't imagine him any different now because of this beautiful work! I'm currently drawing my own versions of the Greek gods (for a comic too & stuff) and I can't draw Hades in any other way than you did. I hope you don't mind that I'm using your view in the comic and stuff and draw him too? I really love it, thank you. (:

I'm so absolutely blown away by you, that I've made you my first featured artist of the week on my FB page....I love things with a mythological reference, and this is beautiful. I'm also enchanted by how he's drow in appearance.
