Hades and Persephone by Arbetta Hades and Persephone by Arbetta
Nothing to add to the title, really. Here is another portrait of my favourite, yet controversial, mythological/divine couple ever. The king and queen of the Underworld! :dance:

Hope you like them :meow:

ps: Here you can see them too [link] They're a little different though :aww:

I absolutely love Hades's expression. It's just so: ಠ_ಠ "This IS my happy face."

Wonderful drawing. This is one of my favorite depictions of them. I hope you'll draw more of them. ^v^

I love how Hades is clearly loving this portrait while he looks away.
I can just see Persephone being all smiles and beauty while Hades is next to her mentally blushing and smiling.  He has this menacing look and aura around him and gets stereotyped, but he's really a big fat softie

I like the story how Hades took Persephone from his mother and how all of this create our seasons!
But in your pictures she look happy and satisfied with his lot.

you know these two always remind me of Edgar Allan Poe and his wife Virginia Clemm. They were also related (cousins) with a huge age difference between them (13 years). they were very loyal to each other, though they never had children, and Virginia's failing health put him in a deep state of depression and alcoholism. Shortly after her death, he attempted suicide. he, himself, died two years after her death.

here's a copy of a letter he wrote to her mother, and his aunt, confessing his love. it's really quite heartbreaking. [link]

I love Hades and Persephone (definitely my favorite Greek myth) and I love seeing the ways people interpret them differently. That being said, I love your interpretation! Your Persephone is beautiful and elegant, but also has enough softness and sweetness in her features to make her likeable, and Hades seems solemn but relatable in a way that helps the viewer understand his expression and his emotions. Wonderful work! :heart:

Jejeje, me alegra que te guste Hades, a mí me encanta que esté siempre tan deprimido y tal :P Y la pareja con ella me gusta porque no tienen demasiados líos por ahí, y hacen un contraste chulo :aww: Gracias por comentar!!

:iconnarelst2:
narelSt2 Featured By Owner Sep 10, 2012
La verdad es que la ausencia de líos es de agradecer XD Vamos, es que es de coña lo mucho que se llevaban en el Olimpo las infidelidades... Creo que estos dos son de los pocos que se salvan XDD
A mí también me hace gracia que Hades esté tan depre, pero sobre todo lo entiendo (es decir, vive en el inframundo y de pequeño se lo comió su padre ^^'). Y no sé, también me hace mucha gracia el cambio radical que se da en Perséfone.
Ya digo, se me hacen los dos muy simpáticos, así que gracias por subir el dibujo ^^
