Made a new piece with my all time fav couple, Hades and Persephone 🌿♥💀
Need to draw a personal artworks for both of them separately, cause I always draw them only together 😏
I feel that Hades is amongst the characters unfairly maligned by the Hollywood hacks, whose already meagre knowledge of the Greek mythology is further hampered by tired Christian stereotypes. At no point while reading the myths and legends of ancient Greece did I get the impression that Hades was a malicious character in any way. He comes across as a dutiful custodian of the dead, and when he's a dick, he's less so than most of his relatives. But guess who's always typecast as the villain of ancient Greece in every other American work of fiction? That's right, Hades. Because he rules the underworld, and I guess the train of thought is "underworld => hell => EVUL >:("
Only 6 months....such a short time to be together.
I always love the amount of care that Hades clearly shows for his wife in your pics, holding her as if she were a delicate flower. Which she kinda is, if it were six feet tall and had razor-sharp thorns >:3 Persephone ain't a pushover after all, not with her title as Queen of the Underground. Point is, he doesn't HAVE to be so careful, but he IS. Because he CARES!
