Persephone Comparison



A comparison shot of the new and old versions of Persephone.

This picture has been such a wonderful journey of discovery for my digital painting and for pushing myself, thematically! It started out as a characterforge challenge over at

I thought I might move on and leave sleeping dogs to lie, but I just couldn't stop staring at this piece wondering how I could make it tell more of her story. So the cave was added to give her more of the atmosphere of the underworld, along with several other subtle shifts in elements to help the composition's flow.

There's more about the compositional analysis that led to these changes at this blog post, for the curious - [link]

Now, if I should work on this picture any longer, may my hands fall off! The downside of digital = too much ability to perfect!
