(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:

This is idiotic, jejune, and flat out stupid. People die because it's their time not because they didn't post an imaginary story. Those who believe this must go, evaluate their pathetic lives and get a psychiatrist. Then I can have a civil conversation with those persons. This is risible, how can you languorous people believe this. It vitiates my sense of life, that should never be vitiated. I despise the fact that people are stupid enough, that our society has dropped to this level, to post such trash as that. I repeat the wise words said by TheGamingArtist13 : "Nothing will happen if you do not read this!" In my opinion truer words, on this subject at least, were never spoken.

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. :)

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!
