Hades and Persephone- Part I

Prologue, Part I, Part II

————————–

It’s here! I’m going to try to post on Thursday nights. No promises they’ll always be on time because of work/school. But Thursdays are the goal.

I had a lot of technical difficulties with this. My home monitor is really crappy and the one I used at school is great… but it made the colors have a lot of inconsistencies. I’ll be getting a new monitor soon, so maybe I’ll come back to older chapters later and retouch them.

Be to her, Persephone,
All the things I might not be;
Take her head upon your knee.
She that was so proud and wild,
Flippant, arrogant, and free,
She that had no need of me,
Is a lonely little child
Lost in Hell, - Persephone,
Take her head upon your knee;
Say to her, “My dear, my dear,
It is not so dreadful here.”
—  Prayer to Persephone, Edna St. Vincent Millay

Prolouge Part I Part II

———————————–

Here’s the prologue to my version of Hades and Persephone 

didn’t get too creative with the title haha 

I’m very nervous to post it. I saw other artists do a much better job with the story, but I really didn’t want to give up all the work I did just because of that.

The first actual chapter will come out soon! I’m looking forward to sharing it!

I’ll probably post here and on Tapastic eventually, so if you like Tapastic’s layout better than tumblr’s, there will be that.

I will have to re-size all these pages because I wasn't thinking
