Persephone - created by annabat

ALL Photoshop (18+ hours of painting)

I've been fascinated by the story of Persephone for a very long time. Persephone was The daughter of Zeus and Demeter. She was so lovely that Hades fell in love with her and stole her away from her world of nature.

Eventually Persephone fell in love with Hades and came to rule the underworld with Hades but here I am depicting her right after she was stolen.

Argus Panoptes - created by GolemAura

Argus Panoptes
Favs: 1SBS: 3Hi-resRank: 4/22Score: 59.5% (20)74912 views

In Greek mythology, Argus Panoptes (Ἄργος Πανόπτης) or Argos, guardian of the heifer-nymph Io and son of Arestor, was a primordial giant whose epithet "Panoptes", "all-seeing", led to his being described with multiple, often a hundred, eyes.

According to Ovid, to commemorate her faithful watchman, Hera had the hundred eyes of Argus preserved forever, in a peacock's tail.
