Horae by Arbetta Horae by Arbetta

The Horae, or Hours (Las Horas), from Greek mythology :aww: I think some people wanted to see them :D

There are two generations of Hours (and even a list of nine hours, from the Romans), but here I drew the first generation:

Thallo, the Hour of Spring, protector of youth and nature. She is a regular companion of Aphrodite, but also the one who waits for Persephone and walks with her when she leaves the Underworld each year.

Auxo, the Hour of vegetation and plants (I believe we can say she’s the Summer hour). She protects growth and fertility.

Carpo, the Hour of Autumn, she protects fruits and harvesting, and brings ripening. She is associated with Dionysus, and assists him in the vintage.

Hope you like them ;)

They're also known by the names Eunomia, Dice and Irene.
I like how you drew them, they're like a Grecian-teenage version of the Power-Puff Girls.;)

Wait a second... What is Carpo dropping? I know it's an apple, but... Is it one of the famous golden apples?!

...

If it isn't, I'm going to imagine it is. If you made it like that intentionally... WOW.

Oh I didn't know about those girls :D though I love Greek Mythology
From the design and the little description, I'd say my favourite is Thallo :) but the three look gorgeous ! I like the fact they are dark skinned

A estas no las conocía. ¡Muy original! A la vez que muy clásico en la composición y las posturas. El vestido de Talo y el peinado de Auxo lo parten especialmente. :D

PD: ¡por mí, miércoles o jueves!

I can't believe you drew and colored the 1st generation of Hours!! The 2nd generation is more known though because there are 12 of them like in half a day. Cool, right?! Anyway they are solo beautiful and graceful!!!! Great job and I'm looking forward to more!!:):):)

I love the second generation too, but they were too many for me hahaha :D And also there are Eunomia, Dice and Eirene, who are another three "horae". It's great to get to know people who also love mythology. Thank you for your comment! :hug:
