Persephone Picture

"Upon his entry to the Underworld, the messenger Hermes was amazed at what he found. Instead of finding a frail and fearful Persephone, he found a radiant and striking Queen of the Dead. She had adjusted well to her new position, saying she had even found her calling."

Inspired by a version of Persephone that I especially liked. I was also inspired to draw Persephone the way I did by Zendaya's dress at the Oscar's this year. She looked like a goddess to me.
