Persephone. by Ashlings Persephone. by Ashlings
Oh my gosh I've tried to submit this 30 times.
T___T

This is the Greek goddess Persephone (per-sef-oh-NE), daughter of Demeter and Zeus. I'm doing a project on her in English IV. I've been doodling her all week, but I liked this one best.

Hades kidnapped her from a field and brought her to the Underworld to be his bride. She ate pomegranate seeds and was thus tied to the Underworld for half of the year, but Hades allowed her to see her mother for the other half. It is said that this started the change of seasons between Winter and Summer.

Done in pencil.
I will scrap this later. Hope you enjoy. :]

:] I love her. The texture really adds to the feel of the picture, but it's really pretty. I really love her expression(her mouth strikes me as being very pretty). <3
