Hades and Persephone by dan-duncan Hades and Persephone by dan-duncan
I'm actually not sure I'm done with this, I think I want to even out the skin tones on Persephone a bit. But we'll see I'm going to sleep on it for now

I don't know if you used the silver fox term right. I do know your Hades is cool! :)

Just wondering, why are people grabbing onto Persephone? It's a lovely picture, by the way.

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!

I agree completely, it's definitely an awesome couple to draw because combined they have everything you could want! Thanks bro!

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

I probably won't but thanks anyways!

2answers:

1) I wanted to do a series of illustrations based on greek myths just for self promotion and fun. Then Dan reminded me about spectrum so I guess now they're for that haha

2) you're making me blush over here

I love the fact how you added the seeded-fruit that Hades offers her. In art I've seen of these two, the fruit is left out, but it's a big deal in their story.

If I'm remembering correctly, for every seed, it's a child? Or a year she has to stay? Something like that...

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
