Hades and Persephone I by AbigailLarson Hades and Persephone I by AbigailLarson
I've been working with an awesome client recently who commissioned an illustration of Persephone and Hades, and she liked all the thumbnails I came up with - so I got to finish them all! Here's I of IV

Ink, watercolor, Photoshop

This is beautiful and my favourite of this series of drawings. I love the details with her hair, his fingers by her waist, the way they gently cling to each other and more than anything else.. the expressions. Just stunning.

I've always thought Hades got a bit of a bum deal because his kingdom later became associated with images of the Christian hell, but the Greek underworld as I understand it was never a place of divine punishment, but if a soul carried its regrets and longings there it would effectively torment itself. I like the version of Hades that is depicted in Gene Wolfe's 'Soldier in the Mist' where he tells the narrator something like 'men fear me, but there is no one men should fear less than me'. I guess Persephone was technically his niece but then again most Olympians married siblings so no big faux pas there. I like in your version how Persephone is obviously into him and it was unlikely she would have had to have been abducted away to the underworld, Demeter will be furious!
