drawn for my classics class that i'm taking over the summer to fill my complementary studies credits.... the course is intro to greek and roman mythology and we have one assignment in the entire class.

could have either written an essay or done a creative project (art, poem, story, etc) so yeah, decided to draw one of my fav pairings in greek myth, hades and persephone =D

i really like how it turned out for once ^O^

hope you like =D

Your style is amazing. I love the detail of the pomegranate and the clothing. The only thing I don't like, if you'll pardon my saying, is only personal preference - I don't think anime facial features suit Greek royalty/divinity at all. But still, beautiful. I love that it isn't computer art as well.

I love the colours and the character designs are beautiful. I also like how he's seducing her into accepting the pomegranate seed, and the expression on Persephone's face. Wonderful work! :heart:

OMG, it just so happens that I'm doing a Project on the goddess, Demeter, Persephone's mother, that I stumble upon this awesome work! Hades is such a bishounen there and Persephone is as beautiful and innocent as ever despite becoming the queen of the underworld! LOLz

She ate six seeds from a pomegranate (the fruit in the picture) which condemned her to spend six month of the year in the underworld

The look in her eyes is just perfect for the myth of Hades & Persephone. She's not sure exactly what she's just done, but a part of her is happy anyway! Epicly awesome job! =)
