Lineart is © *aesyria :iconaesyria: [link]
She very kindly allowed me to post my colored version of her wonderful work ^^

Texture is © ~fotojenny :iconfotojenny: [link]
It's free to use !


I tried to keep earthly colors since Demeter is the Greek Earth Goddess... so green and brown X) I used different shades of green for the outfit and for the corn leaves, but my scanner ate some of the constrast and I am not skilled enough with GIMP to get the exact original colors back ^^"
Anyway, I'm just a beginner at coloring with pencils, so it must not be perfect, but I am glad of the result. I think I'm progressing... slowly XD

Hi I love the pic c: I'm just curious if I can use this for a video project for school. Nothing too complex just advertising random cooking oil >_<

Hi!
Thanks for your interest, I'm glad you like it! It's OK for me, however please make sure the artist who drew the original lineart (:iconbethanyroot:) is also OK with it ^^

Well actually we rushed the project (school project btw) so we didn't get to use the picture but thanks for allowing us ^^'

Well this is very Muchaesque, which I love my problem is there is no corn in Greece.  Demeter usually holds wheat, barley, or bulger.

Thanks ^^ I know there is no corn in Greece, but as stated in my Artist's Comment, I'm not the one who drew the lineart ^^" however I guess since Demeter is an embodiment of harvest, crops, vegetation, and so on, she may also be represented with non-Mediterranean crops, even though I admit it is not very usual =)

Thank you, I'm flattered you like it that much ^^ unfortunately, neither the lines nor the background were made by me (actually I only colored Demeter), so I can't enable prints of it... because of copyrights and such >.< but thank you very much for your interest!

Nice art! I would like to ask for permission if it's okay to have your art be part of my list on my site? I am looking forward to feature some great gods and goddesses on my site. You can check out my site here, at the bottom. Of course I'll put a credit that this is your own art. :)
Hope you'll agree! \(^_^)/

Well, in fact I didn't draw the lines nor make the texture, so I can't accept in the name of the artists who created them... you should ask them too (they are in my comment for the deviation =))
As far as I'm concerned, it's okay, and I'm very flattered ! There are quite wonderful pictures on your previous articles ^^ So thank you a lot for asking ! :hug:
(And by any chance, do you speak Spanish ? I wonder because of the title of your manga =))
