This is beautiful Sanya! The colors, the inking, it's all wonderful! I was just taking with Megan about doing a Persephone sketch for Fables. Great story.

I know, I love it too! There's an infamous alternative version of the tale, did you know? In this version of the story, Persephone secretly eats the 6 pomegranate seeds deliberately because being with Hades, she realized that in the normal world of the Olympians, she's only a very minor diety (spring) constantly drawing her power from her mother Demeter (all seasons) where as in Hades, she would be queen of the underworld. Personally, I love that version because it's a lot more dark and devious and ambitious-- it sort of inspired this artwork too.. I was originally going to call it, to serve in heaven or "...to Rule in Hell." :D

Beautiful... I'm going to have to chat you up about your colouring techniques, and why the two different programs! (when you move into the Embassy!)

Thanks Keiren! The long short of it is that I do almost the whole thing in painter, but I adjust the hue-sat and knock out the lineart in photoshop because it's less clunky than painter in those areas. We'll definitely have to catch up when I move in-- hopefully some time soon! :D

Haha, I WISH I'd done this in MS Paint-- no Painter is by Corel-- it's pretty much my go-to for digital coloring. :D

Thanks Pirhan! It's funny, I'm producing more work then I have in my entire life, but it's harder then ever to find the time to upload it. :P
