I love how you interpreted the flowers that she was picking when hades took her. You show the beauty in her that they proved only in words and the facial details of hades speaks for itself with or without the outfit. The armor was just the touch to speak for him being one of the three brotherly gods. Amazing color, technique and an obvious knowledge to fill the art with ample sense. Well done indeed.
