done with Adobe Photoshop

The colour choice, the pose, the background all glue my eyes to the screen. Marvellous.

Kore the Maiden. Beautiful work. I love the intricate, symbolic pomegranate at her feet.

A question she is Persephone? She called Proserpina, Hade's love?

This is AMAZING! This looks like it could be a painting hanging in a museum amidst many of the masters. Her outfit draping is beautiful. The oasis in the Underworld called by her presence is evident in the beautiful greenery growing in the otherwise dark and intimidating atmosphere. What an amazing painting!!

Gorgeous piece... Love that there's a contrast in theme.... there's a classic feel with Kore, and then a very modern vibe with the monstrous face in the background

OMG I love this! It looks like she is the only spot of light in the Underworld - which is true, as far as Hades is concerned. This is so beautiful, and very accurate with the story ^_^

I have to say, this is one of best interpretations I've seen. :D

Das Bild ist wunderschön!
Ganz davon abgesehen, dass dein Stil wirklich klasse ist, gefallen mir besonders ihr Gesichtsausdruck und ihre Pose sehr gut.
Außerdem ist es eine nette Abwechslung ein Bild von Persephone in der Unterwelt zu sehen, auf dem sie nicht wie ein Häufchen Elend melancholisch in die Gegend schaut (Ja, man merkt, ich bin ein Vertreter der Version der Mythe, in der sie bei dem Part mit dem Granatapfel nicht ganz unschuldig war...)
Auch die Details sehen wirklich gut aus.
Wie gesagt ein wirklich abslout gelungenes Bild!
