One question: is this an Photoshop brush, is an real photo or is an edited real photo?

I hate these chain-mail-esque comments. Looks like either this account was hacked, or you are being a serious troll. It seems there's no report button, but I need one.

I have always imagined Hades as the bad guy from the Disney movie Hercules, but this is so beautiful. She is the light in his darkness and I love how this picture portrays them.

He reminds me of Lord Darsha from the anime WOLF'S RAIN.

I just want you to know that the only reason why it took me so long to put this in my favorites was because I had already downloaded it in my computer a really long time ago. I enjoy collecting exquisite art. I felt that having it saved in my computer and in my Favorites would be overdoing it. But by refusing to show that this exceptional masterpiece is one of my favorites I'm only saying to the public that I have no taste. So here I am...putting it in my favorites and still having it saved in my computer. Seriously, this is one of the most magnificent visions I've seen in my life. Hades looks like amazing! Handsome, yet dark, mysterious, and misunderstood. I love the poses and the dynamic between them in this piece.

Seriously, you're beyond great and it would mean a lot to me for you to check out my work and tell me what you think.

this really is a beautiful scene with absolutely stunning composition. <3

Hades looks rather elvish.
Living4me Featured By Owner Apr 7, 2015
You may hate me for this, but I have recently started the Game of Thrones ... and binge watched it to the end of season 4 ...
What I know and what I see are two different things. At first I understood that this was Hades and Persephone ... but now I see it as a glorified version of the King of White Walkers and the Sansa ... Please don't hit me ...

WARNING! Carry on reading! Or you will die, even if you only looked at the word warning!
Once there was a little girl called Clarissa, she was ten-years-old and she lived in a mental
hospital, because she killed her mom and her dad. She got so bad she went to kill all the
staff in the hospital so the More-government decided that best idea was to get rid of her so
they set up a special room to kill her, as humane as possible but it went wrong the
machine they were using went wrong. And she sat there in agony for hours until she died.
Now every week on the day of her death she returns to the person that reads this letter, on
a Monday night at 12:00 a.m. She creeps into your room and kills you slowly, by cutting you
and watching you bleed to death. Now send this to ten other pictures on this one site, and
she will haunt someone else who doesn't. This isn't fake. apparently, if you copy and paste
this to ten comments in the next ten minutes you will have the best day of your life tomorrow.You
will either get kissed or asked out, if you break this chain u will see a little dead girl in your room
Romeh96 Featured By Owner Apr 8, 2015  Hobbyist General Artist
I find these things so funny~! xD
The thing is, man, I've read this one before and I didn't send it to 10 people or anything, and I'm not dead.
