4 Blondes and 2 Brunettes by bratitude123 4 Blondes and 2 Brunettes by bratitude123
An art trade with :icongameaddict4:. These are his version of some of the Greek minor gods.

From left to right:

Ganymede: In Greek mythology, Ganymede, or Ganymedes (Greek: Γανυμήδης, Ganymēdēs), is a divine hero whose homeland was Troy. He was a prince, son of the eponymous Tros of Dardania and of Callirrhoe, and brother of Ilus and Assaracus. Homer describes Ganymede as the most beautiful of mortals, which led the gods, or according to some, Zeus in the form of an eagle, to abduct him for service as cup-bearer in Olympus and, in Classical and Hellenistic Greece, as Zeus's eromenos.

Philotes: (Greek: Φιλότης) or Philote (Greek: Φιλότη) is a minor Greek goddess. She was a daughter of Nyx. She is the personification of affection, sexual intercourse and friendship.

Hermaphroditus: In Greek mythology, Hermaphroditus or Hermaphroditos (Greek: Ἑρμαφρόδιτος) was the child of Aphrodite and Hermes. He was a minor deity of bisexuality and effeminacy. According to Ovid, born a remarkably handsome boy, he was transformed into an androgynous being by union with the water nymph Salmacis. His name is the basis for the word hermaphrodite.

Apate: Apate was the daughter of Nyx in Greek mythology. She was the personification of deceit, and was one of the evil spirits released from Pandora's box. Her Roman equivalent was Fraus, which is where the word 'fraud' originated. Her siblings were Geras, the personification of old age, Oizys, the personification of suffering, Moros, the personification of doom, Momos, the personification of blame, Eris, the personification of strife, Nemesis, the personification of retribution, and Keres, the personification of carnage and violent death. Her mother, Nyx is the personification of night, and her father, Erebos, the personification of darkness.

Eros: Eros (Ancient Greek: Ἔρως, "Intimate Love"; UK: /ˈɪərɒs/, US: /ˈerɑːs/), in Greek mythology, was the primordial god of sexual love and beauty. He was also worshipped as a fertility deity. His Roman counterpart was Cupid ("desire"). In the Theogony Hesiod makes him a primordial god, while in some myths, he was the son of the deities Aphrodite and Ares.

Hebe: In Greek mythology, Hēbē (Greek: Ἥβη) is the goddess of youth (Roman equivalent: Juventas). She is the daughter of Poseidon and Aphrodite. Hebe was the cupbearer for the gods and goddesses of Mount Olympus, serving their nectar and ambrosia, until she was married to Heracles, (Roman equivalent: Hercules); her successor was the young Trojan prince Ganymede. Another title of hers, for this reason, is "Ganymeda." She also drew baths for Ares and helped Hera enter her chariot.
In Euripides' play Heracleidae, Hebe granted Iolaus' wish to become young again in order to fight Eurystheus. Hebe had two children with her husband Heracles: Alexiares and Anicetus. In Roman mythology, Juventas received a coin offering from boys when they put on the adult men's toga for the first time.
The name Hebe comes from Greek word meaning "youth" or "prime of life". Juventas likewise means "youth", as can be seen in such derivatives as juvenile. In art, Hebe is usually depicted wearing a sleeveless dress. She got so angry with her husband Ares she shot him in the head 3 times.

That's all of them. (Information from Wikipedia)

I was listening to this while making this drawing. I know that's it's not related.

I hope you like it! ^_^
