My nine Muse designs, lined up from oldest to youngest, to show height differences and variation!

See their individual character sheets:
Calliope - Clio - Erato
Polyhymnia - Melpomene - Thalia
Urania - Terpsichore - Euterpe

The Muses appear in my Rise of the Guardians fanfic over on my lit account (~tbdoll-lit). In my story, while the Guardians follow the Moon, the Muses follow the Sun.  The Muses have a long-standing alliance with the Guardians and need to make use of it as dark creatures threaten their powers to inspire.

I'm also sort of trying to develop them independently of the RotG universe, but we'll see how that goes.  I decided to do all their character sheets for an assignment in one of my classes and that was a lot to do, but I'm so glad I finished them.  I may still go back and tweak their designs at some point but probably not for a while.  For now, I am happy with how they turned out and very pleased that they're all done.

Something Quite Peculiar - Chapter 01
Chapter One: Reminiscing
The cabin could barely be called a cabin. It was more of a hut: a building in the loosest sense of the word. It had four walls and a roof, a door, a window, and a chimney that looked as though it were ready to fall over. Truthfully, it appeared that a strong gust of wind could knock down the shack, with signs surrounding which read, “Condemned” and “No Trespassing.”
The small structure was concealed behind several large trees, and was incredibly easy to miss, nestled within the forest that rarely anyone ventured into.
It was always snowing around this cabin, regardless of the season.
Inside was exceedingly less interesting than outside, if at all possible. There was only one room, which contained a mattress and pillow in the corner, a fireplace that appeared to have not been used in decades, and a few shelves on one of the walls.
The shelves proved to be at least somewhat intriguing, containing items such as a matryoshka do

Thanks for the link and credit!
I came across this image when I was researching modern muses for a series of books i'm writing and suddenly the ideas flowed. Thanks for the inspiration.

Late response is late, sorry!

That's what the Muses are for!  Good luck with your Muses, there's a lot you can do with them, I think.

By far the best depiction of the goddesses I've found up to now.

What  I love about this clip is one of the Muses, also played Valeria in Conan the Barbarian...seriously.
That, and Terpsichore is ironically the last Muse to leave the mural.

May I use this as the cover as my NaNoWriMo book? If so, I'll credit you in my summary!

I'm flattered you like it so much, but I made this for my own characters/story, so I'm going to have to say no.

To start off with, thank you for replying!
I understand, I'll probably end up stopping myself from being lazy and drawing my own cover.
Finally, I apologise for bothering you!
Have a great day, Jes

You're welcome!!
Okay, here comes a question I'm afraid to ask, where do they all live?

Figured they were nomadic.
Aha, so there always traveling.

I figured they'd at least had a "comfort zone".
