Persephone by Arbetta Persephone by Arbetta
Yay! She is winning the race in my last poll about the most loved Greek mythology goddess, with Artemis and Athena close behind (specially Artemis hehehe) :giggle:

This is not the last goddess portrait I will make, since I received so many comments and votes from you I got many many new ideas to draw and paint. So... thank you all, really :hug:

Hope you like her :meow:

(I really think I gotta draw all the Olympic boys now...)

No sueles hacer muchos retratos de este tipo, con planos cortos, pero te ha quedado muy bien, sobre todo los colores, las luces y las sombras de la cara y especialmente la nariz. Puede que sea un comentario extrañamente específico, pero creo que es la mejor nariz que has puesto por aquí. :D

She DEFINITELY looks like the goddess of spring! The color palette you chose to color her with is wonderful and very rich in quality! Her hair also seems to glow which is a very nice touch and her tan skin goes well with the color reddish pink!!
This is a FANTASTIC job!!!!! I can't wait to see what Artemis and Athena look like!!!! :D

Oh, Athena and Artemis will have different gazes... Athena will be like "yeah, I'm awesome" and Artemis "yeah, I'm awesome and I'll kill you if say otherwise" :D

Thanks a lot! :hug:

So gorgeous!! I especially love her hair and the flowers (:
Hehe, I'm not surprised she's one of the most loved! If you did the most disliked, I wonder who it would be? XD Hera, of course! Goddess of bitchiness and grudges.

Hahahaha :D She's bitchy but I love Hera, she's funny and has lots of personality! Besides, I can't blame her for holding an eternal grudge against her husband...
I don't dislike any goddess in particular... Even the bad ones are great! :D I have a love-hate relationship with Aphrodite, but that's just normal! :giggle:

Thanks for the comment!

I'm suppose I'm kind of biased because I was encouraged to read Percy Jackson, in which Hera is just a massive bitch, treats everyone like her pawns and then discards them once they've finished with their quests for her. Hmm. Zeus is kind of a player, so you can't blame her for that, but the way she treated Hephaestus and some of her other children is inexcusable. 
I suppose the other one I don't particularly like is Khione, goddess of snow, but that's Rick Riordan's fault again.

Anytime. Your work is beautiful. Please post some more!! (:

Isn't she the goddess of Fertility?

Thank you! :D

She can be taken as a goddess of Fertility but, mostly, it is her mother, Demeter, who represents Earth's fertility and Persephone is the Spring, youth and freshness :aww:
