(More) Greek nymphs by Arbetta (More) Greek nymphs by Arbetta
Just some samples of four kinds of Greek mythology nymphs (there are more and I will try to draw them all!):

Pleiade: One of the seven daughters of Atlas, they became stars after their suicide pact :omg: yep!
Epimelide: Apple tree nymphs, and also protectors of sheeps and goats in valleys and meadows. They had beautiful white hair, like the apple tree flowers and the wool ;)
Naiad: Unlike the well-known Oceanids and the Nereids, these are associated with fresh water bodies (fountains, streams...)
Aurae: Nymphs of the breezes, each one a daughter of one of the four main gods of the winds (Boreas, Eurus, Zephyrus and Notus).

The gods are coming soon :meow:

The Pleiades sounds wonderful, but they all seem so sad as well.

Do any of the Aurae have specific names?) I like the idea of the winds having male and female personifications. :)

I -do- like these! I didn't know there were nymphs specifically for apple trees... or for breezes

No sé si mi favorita es la náyade o la aura. Es que la náyade mola mucho con esos tonos verdes, pero la aura tiene una cara de boss que me encanta. :D
Y el peinado, también.

¡MOAR mitología!

Have you ever drawn a Melia? These nymphs were daughters of the blood of Uranus, dropped on Gea. They were the nymphs of ash tree!
