But I submit six new Greek mytholgy ladies! I usually talk about them in my tumblr [link] and explain their stories. You probably know some of these! (maybe one or two?)
From left to right they are:
Galatea: a nereid, or sea nymph. A cyclops killed her lover and she created a river with his blood, aww...
Echo: an oread, or mountain nymph, she helped Zeus and thus got punished by Hera (wow, that's new). She could only repeat the last words of the person talking to her... She loved Narcissus but he died cuz he was stupid LOL
Chloris: a nymph of flowers and stuff, she was abducted by Zephyr
Eurydice: an auloniad, country-dance nymph. She was killed by a snake but his husband Orpheus went to the Underworld to rescue her... too bad he was a little stupid too and lost her!
Daphne: a dryad. Apollo was sexually harassing her and thus she asked for help and got turned into a laurel tree.
Galatea (II): is not exactly a nymph but I included her as a bonus. She was an ivory statue whose creator, Pygmalion, fell in love with. He asked Venus to make her a living woman
Hope you like it!
I really like how you did the 3rd one and the last one
it was so sad that orpheus was a bit of an idiot and looked behind him at his wife ( Eurydice)
Wonderful, all of them
Greek mythology is so cruel to women. First Medusa gets snake hair for being raped and now Daphne turns into a tree for being sexually harassed?!
Great drawing though!
that aside, beautiful work as usual ^^
I like Galatea, Echo, Eurydice, and Galatea(II)
Galatea (I) with pearls and blood recalls its history,
Echo is beautiful with its wreath;
Chloris looks all happy and delighted, she has lots of charm,
Original cap for Eurydice
I love cap of Daphne,
Galatea (II) is simple, natural, just a few stars to increase her charm.
Excellent choice of colors! Your characters are very expressive!
I love it!
What a toolbag xD
Do you think Chloris is available?
Thanks a lot for your words
and the description is perfect too especially about the stupid Narcissus LOL
