I tried going for a more painted look. I dont know if I succeeded or not. :/ I also went Texture happy : )
The story of Hades and Persephone is an abduction story. Hades, God of the Underworld, fell in love with the Spring Goddess, Persephone. He took her down to the underworld, and her mother, Demeter flew into a frenzy, killing all the crops on Earth. Hades spoiled Persephone in vast riches so she would love him in return. But Persephone missed the sunshine and her mother. But after a while in the underworld, she began to fall for the Dark King and became accustomed to being a Queen. When Hermes came to collect her because Zeus demanded her back to her mother, Persephone swallowed 6 Pomegranate seeds. This allowed her to spend 6 months on Earth with her mother and 6 months in the underworld with her husband.
More or less that's one of the versions of the story : )

What I love most about this piece, is that you didn't draw Hades to look demonic or weird. It always bugged me how there are way too many interpretations of Hades as a jerk or a demon just because he is in charge of the afterlife. He's not even the god of death, so why the hating on him?
Kudos to you!!
