Aphrodite Picture

I was on this website, [link]
And I'm totally addicted! lol
I decided to do a series on the top fermale Olympians from Greek Mythology.

This is Aphrodite, goddess of Love, Beauty, Passion, Desire, and Sex.

She's supposed to be first and foremost the total epitome of beauty, even the ground blossoms roses at her feet wherever she steps, (hence the flowers under her dress) At times, she's a kind figure, helping out others in the name of true love, but other times, she's pretty haughty and very high-maintenance. She was married very early on to the god, Hephaestus, who is considered the ugliest of the Olympians, by his father, Zeus, so as to not cause fights among the other gods over who should have her hand in marriage. Even though she was happily married and Hephaestus was a good husband to her, she cheated on him at times, mostly with Hephaestus' brother, Ares. And they have a son, Eros, alias Cupid.
Another famous affair of hers is with the mortal, Adonis.

I drew inspiration from the stereotypical supermodel, who is absolutely flawless; perfect face, piercing eyes, a knockout-body, and long golden hair.

I hope you like it!
