Forever Love by Artemysia Forever Love by Artemysia
Happy happy happy birthday my darling bardo! you lived a quarter of a century and you are a man of experience :D (experience that you shall teach me soon ;))
I finally finished the drawing I promised you ... it was supposed to be celebrating our one year anniversary, shame on me! but it still does :) I hope you will like it ... not much to say about the technique, pencil and paper and some bad shading ! I did my best for you my love, and I do hope you will like it!
The subject is one I find very special : me and him as mythical Selene, Goddess of the Moon, and Endymion, her beloved one. (he looks more like and Apollo, but I did it on purpose because hes the God of Art and Poetry and so is my darling bardo!) The lyre and the leaves on his ears show that he is an Aed, the ancient greek bard :) they are romantically sitting on the moon, and I wanted to give a special glow effect with the shading but I dont think I did it well!!
Since theyre both divine they should glow in the darkness with the moon..
its a very special scene for it is one of our most ancient memories,when he called me his Goddess, Muse and Selene and I called him my Endymion and bard. I mixed everything and thats what came out! I love it particularly as I am so fond of Ancient Greece!
Im quite satisfied except for his shoe and some other small details... but we soldier on!
I tried giving both a romantic and sensual atmosphere by dressing them poorly (:P) and letting him embrace her with desire, and setting all of it in a dark sky, on a glowing moon, in a mythical era.
Is not as wonderful as your anniversary drawing to me , my love, but I still hope you will love it :D We went through a year of things happening together and I am very proud of us :) we shall always be like them Selene and Endymion, in our mythical and eternal love!

characters are me, =karusuman

oh are there a mytologic characters?? :? the young boy with a lyra reminds me Orfeo. Are they Orffeo and Eurídice??

well they're inspired by mythological characters, they are me and my fiancè in the guise of Selene (goddess of the moon) and Endymion, her lover, although you are right, it should be Orfeo using the lyre :)

Ah so I was not wrong at all :D I know about Selene, but not of Endymon, perhaps I have to read about this mith. I love grecian miths :)

Thank you bella, its the most wonderful birthday present I've ever received! It reminds me so much of when we first met of the conversations we spoke about and the things we had in common. Indeed it is you and I in our splendid romance and we shall forever endure this visage in our dreams and live it each and every day we live for one another. Ti amo tantissimo, mia dolcezza, mia musa per sempre!
