I did ths picture some time ago, decided to submit it sooner, because it will take part in the Digital Artists Summit Digital Illustration Contest :) Wish me luck!

If you do not know the myth of Eros and Psyche, I propose you try this link: [link]

I hope you like it :) It was definitely the most time consuming project I ever did.

A different style, different tonation, lots of refs used, few dozen hours spent. Heavy Mucha inspirations can be spotted especially in the frame:)

Created fully in Adobe Photoshop :heart:

PS. I uploaded a slightly fixed version~

Really beautiful. The link doesn’t work, however I assume Eros is an alternative name for Cupid/ Amor married to a woman who was forbidden to see him and almost killed him with a dagger because her sisters prodded her to. It says it’s been the inspiration for several fairy tales, Cinderella (the envious sisters), the Little Mermaid (the attempted dagger kill) and most of all Beauty and the Beast.

I just found a large print of this in my closet that I ordered years ago in college and put it up in my art studio :)

There, I knew I recognised it!
This artwork is being used in an Etsy listing here [link] It doesn't say anything about having permission to use the image or give you credit as the artist so I thought I should mention it to you.

Hi :wave:

I'm writing an article (for a free french webzine : [link]) on men and sacred males/divinities.
Can I use your a reproduction of your creation (with your credits and link of course) ?
Thanks for your attention !
