Greek goddesses III by Arbetta Greek goddesses III by Arbetta
These are the next six Greek "minor" goddesses I've been drawing in my tumblr: [link]

I think it's time to go now for something more serious... like the Muses or the Fates... By the way, this is way too colorful for me, I'm not satisfied with this ladies. Anyways, they are not very well known so I'll tell you their names:

From left to right, up to down:
Iris (rainbow, messenger of the gods)
Hemera (day and daylight, also called Dies)
Harmonia (armony, concord... boring peace)
Psyche (the soul...)
Nike (victory, speed, glory, the winged goddess)
Eris (strife, discord... FUN!!)

Sorry I'm not around lately, I'm very busy with work... But that will end soon!

is it bad that this reminds me a lot of the main characters of my little pony?

I love all your versions of the Greek Goddesses, Nymphs and/or Ladies.
Especially your version of Nike and the Furies, just the way you portray them...
Have you ever thought about doing Nemesis, the Goddess of Revenge?
Just a thought...

Oh wow, you favor Eris don't you?
Semideia Featured By Owner Sep 18, 2014
Hemera and Eris = :heart:

These are like the most obscure of the greek goddesses (except Psyche and Eris) I wish there were more stories about them.

I'm doing a Eros and psyche manga

In my opinion there are no " minor" gods and goddesses.

I love your interpretation of Hemera. They're all gorgeous, actually, but she's my favorite here. Brilliance!

As I remember, Harmonia married Cadmus and had a happy life until both of them turned into snakes so that they could live together forever :>
sevenofeleven Featured By Owner Oct 21, 2013
Harmonia: Eris, darling. You really must try to get along more!
Eris: Why and miss out on all the fun goings on? Nah!
Nike: Gals, check out my new sneakers!
Harmonia: Yay!
Eris: Meh.

Looks great.

Love Eris and Nike
Eldr-Fire Featured By Owner Oct 3, 2012  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Wow! These are great. My favorite might be Hemera (a goddess I hadn't even heard of before)! I just love how she looks like the ebullience of day.
Iris-Yukimihime Featured By Owner Sep 29, 2012
I love your representations Greek goddesses! I am a fan! I saw that you be at least 2 times, Iris. I just created a group on Deviant Art about her and her entourage. (this is my favorite greek goddess). I leave the link: [link]
If you're interested you can join us.

Congratulations for your design, it is superb! My favorites on this are Iris, Hemera and Harmonia.

Oh yes. Wherever Eris goes, disaster follows. XD
UnsureGirl Featured By Owner Aug 29, 2012  Hobbyist

What mediums do you draw and paint with?
InPBo Featured By Owner Jun 6, 2012  Student General Artist
Armony doesn't spell like Harmony? (just a question, i might be wrong) but whatever :)

laetificavi Featured By Owner Dec 3, 2011
I love the look on Eris' face. Though I'm puzzled as to how to decided who would be fair and who not. Still lovely.

I like your style. I hope you do more from mythology.
gamezgc Featured By Owner Oct 17, 2011
whoaaa I love your Art!!
NeefaFeefa Featured By Owner Oct 1, 2011
You have the absolute coolest Greek Goddess drawings. Seeing them makes me happy :)
lilittu Featured By Owner Sep 30, 2011  Hobbyist General Artist
acá las que me fascinana son Iris y Hemera! pues la segunda me hace pensar en una hada ^^
Wolf-Terrier Featured By Owner Sep 29, 2011  Student General Artist
They look so nice and soft, and the colors are very very pretty and go well with each of them. As I say on tumblr, awesome work! ;______;
WillowWaves Featured By Owner Sep 29, 2011
Wow everytime you upload something new I´m in awe for a few second because it´s so beautiful. My favourite this time is Nike I think. Beautiful, shimmering golden coulours.
hrothila Featured By Owner Sep 29, 2011
Como hagas una cuarta parte no sé a quién vas a meter, porque de estas ya sólo conozco a Niké y a Eris (las otras, sólo de nombre). Niké es la que más me gusta, pero a nivel artístico creo que la mejor es Hemera.
Arbetta Featured By Owner Sep 29, 2011  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Jajajaja Ya se acabó, creo, no quedan más diosas que me parezcan interesantes, alguna madre por ahí como Leto o Mnemosine o Tetis podrían molar, pero creo que ahora voy a hacer a las musas o a las parcas, o a las gracias, o alguna ninfa interesante... Luego he pensado en hacer a los tíos (Zeus será gordo y pederasta, Ares un cani, Hermes un nerd, Apolo un conserje...) ¿Qué opinas?

Me alegra que te guste Niké :meow:

AH! Y tengo que hacer lo que te dije que haría para ti jojojorr...
hrothila Featured By Owner Sep 29, 2011
Nah, Leto aún, pero Tetis es "madre de" y ya'stá. Lo de los dioses sí puede ser bastante grande, jaja, Zeus sobre todo puede ser épico (aunque me gustan todas las caracterizaciones que has puesto... ¡menos la de Apolo! ¡Apolo mola!).
Arbetta Featured By Owner Oct 5, 2011  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Apolo no me mola, es un chulo pero no llega a cabrón sin cerebro como Ares o a emo como Hefesto o a Su Infernal Majestad como Hades... Nu sé, siempre me ha dado un poco de pena Apolo... ¿Cómo debería ponerle, en plan deportista guapetón campeón del mundial de fútbol con rubios cabellos cuan Justino Maderalago?
hrothila Featured By Owner Oct 5, 2011
Jaja, supongo que lo del Timberlake podría funcionar, pero mi visión de Apolo es radicalmente distinta. Casi como una Atenea en tío, muy digno él (y con un arco). Supongo que podría ser un monerdo (me encanta este palabro) muy sieso.
Arbetta Featured By Owner Oct 8, 2011  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Te puedes creer que acabo de buscar la palabra "monerdo" en la RAE para ver si existía y yo no lo sabía??? LAWL JUASJUASJUAS Ya estoy pensando en los dioses para empezar a hacer bocetillos de ellos... quiero que sean más cómicos que otra cosa (más que nada porque no me sale hacer tíos "monos" como las diosas jiji), pero te prometo que a Apolo le voy a hacer fisno y digno... tipo Alejandro Magno o algo asín... A Hermes tengo ganas de hacerle en plan majete... los demás van a arder en el infierno, me dan asco tós! :la:

¿Qué significa "monerdo" al final?
hrothila Featured By Owner Oct 8, 2011
Jaja, "monerdo" es una palabra acuñada por un amigo mío, una combinación de "moderno" y "nerd". Y significa... pues eso. :p

Los tíos no puedes intentar hacerlos monos, tienes que hacerlos viriles y chuloplaya como está mandado para seguir los cánones (pero a la mierda los cánones, prefiero tu visión; dioooos, un Colin Apolo Farrell sería perfecto). Yo es que a los dioses griegos, si los tengo que ver en plan coña, los veo como en "La caja de Pandora" (el cómic más grande de Superlópez junto a "El Señor de los Chupetes").

You drew me!! lol
The romans called Nike Victoria. Which is my name.
Arbetta Featured By Owner Sep 29, 2011  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Hehehe, really? No, I have yet to draw you, but I'm preparing the painting, just wait and see!
Thank you for your comment :aww:

spoonybards Featured By Owner Sep 28, 2011  Student Digital Artist
These are all coming out so amazing! I was marveling over that Iris one you posted today for quite awhile! Gorgeous colours (why unsatisfied?!) and movement, on all of them really, but that one especially *_*
Arbetta Featured By Owner Sep 29, 2011  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Thank you!!! I felt unsatisfied because they seemed too colorful to me, when I started the girls were more like... dunno... soft and sketchy... I want to go back to that again!

But I'm so glad you like Iris... You know, this means a lot to me :meow:
gahillaker Featured By Owner Sep 28, 2011
This is absolutly amazing!!!! You portrayed Nike, Iris, and Eris the best of all I think. Cool!!
