Gea and Uranus

The primal gods of the Sky and the Earth, I've always loved Gea (or Gaia) and Uranus, how everything came from them (titans, giants, monsters, gods). Many myths in different cultures include a love story similar to this one, but not with the later tragic stuff with Cronus castrating his father (yeah) and Aphrodite basically being created within the foam of the sea when Uranus' b**** fell into it :omg:

Anyways, I really love this couple and I coloured and old sketch I did sometime ago because a friend asked for it. I hope she enjoyed the result and that you like it too :hug:

Love your designs for them, and excellent, lovely detail of her standing on his feet. That's so sweet, and appropriate since the Earth is suspended in the sky, of course!
I dunno if it ever was a love story. Gaia created him as a consort, he imprisoned his children in her. He's basically the reason why the Olympians have family issues

The Titan and Olympus family is one HELL DRAMATIC family.

That's really intense and sweet 💙💚. My Ancient Greek teacher explained us this and the other storus from Hesiod's "Teogony"this morning: impressive number of incests...

Thank you sooo much! Yes, I love Greek myth stories because of the tragedies but sometimes it is certainly sad...
