HERA - THE GREEK GODS PROJECT by ISIKOL HERA - THE GREEK GODS PROJECT by ISIKOL
After a long time i finally found some to make Hera!

Hera ( Greek Ἥρα, ) was the wife and one of three sisters of Zeus in the Olympian pantheon of classical Greek Mythology. Her chief function was as the goddess of women and marriage. In Roman mythology, Juno was the equivalent mythical character. The cow, and later, the peacock were sacred to her. Hera's mother was Rhea and her father, Kronos.

Portrayed as majestic and solemn, often enthroned, and crowned with the polos (a high cylindrical crown worn by several of the Great Goddesses), Hera may bear a pomegranate in her hand, emblem of fertile blood and death and a substitute for the narcotic capsule of the opium poppy. A scholar of Greek mythology Walter Burkert writes in Greek Religion, "Nevertheless, there are memories of an earlier aniconic representation, as a pillar in Argos and as a plank in Samos."

Hera was known for her jealous and vengeful nature, most notably against Zeus's lovers and offspring, but also against mortals who crossed her, such as Pelias. Paris offended her by choosing Aphrodite as the most beautiful goddess, earning Hera's hatred. (from wikipedia)

I'm definitely putting this fantastic masterpiece into my favorites. I love how the way Hera proudly holds her spear up high as nothing can get in her way. :-)

She doesn't look like a stubborn bitch at all well done. It would be cool if you made the Roman version of her. Romans were more vicious so Hera's personality would be even worse. :p But this is an amazing picture :D

Wow. She doesn't look anything like how I envisioned her. Beautiful artwork, though if you're a Percy Jackson fan like me, you would understand why I considerably dislike her. Not that I liked her even before I read those books. She did throw her son off Olympus.

Yep, but if Zeus is married to his sister I don't see a problem for the demigods.  :P

Isikol, i understand as I have four of my own lol. I really wasn't wanting you to do it specifically for me, rather more of a suggestion. If I had the money I would pay you to do one with my son's face, but because I have four, there's just no way lol. Anyway, love your work and look forward to seein more!
