Queen of Hades by Celestial-Gold Queen of Hades by Celestial-Gold
"She is among the most dangerous of the immortals in all of the Underworld. The child goddess who brought Hades to his knees."

Persephone, Greek goddess whose name means "she who weakens the darkness", wife of Hades, the Iron Queen.

Demoness-Melody's judge for the Exchange, that classic Greek goddess who just about everyone's read about and pictured. Well at least I know I have so I hope I got her close to what you pictured Melody, but with all my preconceptions I had to add a crown of roses and such. =P Just consider this her informal/formal wear for when she's at home with her hubby.

So really this is my interpretation of the infamous mythological couple.
My version of what Hades might look like... Underworlders just look a certain way in my mind, and I figure being a god of the Underworld Hades would look something like that rather than the run-of-the-mill Greek god. :P

Colored version!
I'm really happy with the way Hades' hair color came out. The one thing I wish I could change is the green eyeshadow on Persephone, it looks way too... well just too much.

Made with: pencil, colored pencil

Thanks! I rather prefer that interpretation that Hades and Persephone eventually got along to the HATE HATE FOREVER PINING one. :P

Always loved that story! I prefer Norse mythology, but out of all the Greek tales, the one about Persephone and Hades was my favorite. Nicely done interpretation-The stitches, skin tone and elf-ish ears on him are wonderful touches as well.

Keep up the great work, this drawing is lovely!

Thanks! Same here, Greek mythology isn't my favorite. But who hasn't pictured these two? They have the most interesting relationship in that pantheon in my opinion.
Yeah, Hades always seemed like he wouldn't be the typical good-looking Apollo type but something that would make the other gods shun him. But hey! He's better than Zeus in my opinion.

Thank you for the thoughtful comment! I'll try to keep the quality up! :)

No problem! I agree with you on their relationship being the most intriguing. And much better than Zeus, he slept around with random chicks XD

You're welcome of course! And I have no doubt your following artwork will be of the upmost quality. ;)

Yeah, Zeus just couldn't keep it in his pants. Fathering entire countries and frankly having EVERY HERO be a Son of Zeus gets tiresome :P

Cool! Thanks for being such an active watcher! :)
