Tragic Greek ladies by Arbetta Tragic Greek ladies by Arbetta
Four nice ladies I drawed on my tumblr: [link]

I'm working on the gods also hehehe... But now I have a lot to study... hmmmkay... :cry:

So... these gurls are related to Greek tragedy/irony in some way (I did not put Ariadne here because she had luck in the end I guess).
From left to right:
Medea: savage witch, in love with Jason, murdered her children, crazy, nuts, etc. Anyways, she's a pretty interesting and powerful woman!
Cassandra: princess of Troy, she had true premonitions about the shit they were going to be into but nobody listened to her because Apollo cursed her. Great!
Pandora: she opened the box and now we can be able to suffer, hate, despise, hurt others, kill... FUNFUNFUN
Antigone: a true heroine, princess of Thebes. Her father was also her brother. Thebes, a nice place. She hanged herself because she was sentenced to death because... long story. I mean tragedy.

Hope you like them :meow:

Medea definitely fits with the quote, "Hath no fury than a woman scorned," since that's exactly what happened to her.

Arbetta, you're one of the most talented artists of the modern world I've ever seen. I'd like to see more of your artworks of "Frozen" and Greek mithology! :D :) :) :) :D Also, I'd like to see more of Melinoe, Persephone, Macaria...

Of "Frozen" I'd like to see more Elsa!

My God....They are wonderful!!
I like the emotions...Medea is showing madness and anger...she is totally maniac...Cassandra is showing great disappointment and sadness...and the best one:Antigone is showing assiduity,courage,and self devotion.

Ever watched 12 Monkeys? 1996 film by Terry Gilliam with some awesome performances by Bruce Willis and Brad Pitt, it's a psychological thriller about time travel and a disease that wipes out most of the human race which takes a number of watchings to fully comprehend the plot. One of the main themes is the idea of "Cassandra complex": the curse of knowing that something catastrophic is going to happen and that you can do nothing to stop it. You've really captured the open-eyed look of the woman here, and it reminded me of a repeating shot in the film where the main female character runs in slow motion toward a man who's been shot through the chest in a repeated dream sequence through the eyes of a child who grows up to be the main character.

Ooh yeah the intense ones. Pandora was specially made by Zeus to be the sexiest and stupidest woman alive as a curse on the king so that he'd marry her and she'd be doomed to open the damn box on account of her being that stupid. pretty sad about Medea, she's a neat character.

Pandora's just like, "oops, my bad! I'll go get a pedicure to make me feel better." :3
