Greek goddesses by Arbetta Greek goddesses by Arbetta
Here six quick paintings of my six favourite greek goddesses (my personal interpretation), some of them I presented in my tumblr : [link]

I'm very fond of mythological stories since I was little. I will probably draw more gods, goddesses, nymphs, etc. when I get some time :meow:

From left to right, up to down:
Hera/Juno (marriage, bitching, rage, peacocks)
Demeter/Ceres (harvest, nature, flower things)
Athena/Minerva (awesomeness, knowledge, crafts)
Persephone/Proserpina (spring, queen of the Underworld hohoho...)
Aphrodite/Venus (love, sex... sex...)
Artemis/Diana (hunt, young women, moon, strange sacrifices...)

Going to sleep now... So tired today... :aww:

Great art! Each one of them is uniquely characterized. Well done! I'm getting into ancient Greek-Roman religion, and as long as I can't find
any God/Goddess that I can use for pray, I'm gonna do them myself! I hope they end up well!

Nice work.

Artemis is, to me anyway, a very under-rated goddess.

When I think of how Aphrodite should be portrayed...I think God of War.

I love how you portrayed Athena and Hera, (heck, all of them, but those two especially!) I saw you Artemis portrait, will you be doing one for Athena as well?

Hi! I was planning to do so, yes! :D I want Athena to look fierce and wise in her portrait, but I have a hard time drawing helmets and weapons, so it'll be more difficult, but I'll try!
Thank you for your comment! ;)
