I think it's because she is probably one of the first (if not THE first) super hot girl that's got the hots for bad dudes. which pretty much makes her unattainable, and everyone wants what they can't have
Have you noticed how they are complete opposites, and yet they look good together? Creepy scary and dark Hades, pretty and light and adorable Persephone! I love opposites in couples. XD Ah well, you captured it well!
Great composition! Persephone is little more sultry than I used to seeing her portrayed but I think that adds to the originality of the piece. You did a really impressive job taking an easily cliched scene and making it different.
thank you! She definitely is more sultry than usual, partly because that's what I wanted to draw/paint and partly because I think the lord of the underworld would have a beautiful wife. Pretty girls like the bad boys
well when I'm officially done I'm going to include a little synopsis. But because you asked, while Persephone was in the under world she understandably became hungry, and Hades offered her a pomegranate. She only ate a few seeds (3-6 or so depending on the telling) before she was "rescued". But, because she ate food from the underworld she must now return a one month for each eaten seed. And that's the reason for the season
