So I decided to go with this design for Aphrodite’s character after all. I have way too many things that I’d like to say about her, so I’ll limit myself to just this. There are many definitions of beauty, and I think lots of people will agree with me. This said, I’m drawing Aphrodite like this not because this is my “ultimate-ideal-of-beauty”, but because this is just how my mind depicts this particular character (after all, it might be that I’m heavily influenced by classical and Reinassance’s interpretations of this goddess, who knows?) I hope this doesn’t sound as if I’m justifying myself (and for what anyway?), but I just wanted to share my thoughts about it. Let me know what you think!
Artemis has always fascinated me a lot (maybe because I have a thing for girls who are wonderfully skilled archers, idk). Also, even thought she’s the emblem of chastity, I’m pretty sure she’s gay (????)
Anyway she, together with Athena, is like a big sister to Kore/Persephone (well, they’re actually step-sisters, so we’re good).
Sketches of a 7-years-old Kore. She’s a rather quiet child but her mind is already very curious and inquiring, and she drives Demeter crazy every time for Kore can’t help but covering herself with dirt and mud.
What’s with that strange crystal…?
