The Nabbing of Persephone p. 1 Picture

Why is there a "mixed media" option UNDER "traditional media"?
...Anyway, this is page one of a set of comics portraying the story of the seasons in Greek mythology -when Hades stole (or "nabbed", or as my books put it, "raped") Persephone, daughter of Demeter and Zeus, because he was lonely, only hanging out with dead people and a three-headed dog all the time.

So I drew this series of comics back in... October or November 2009. Then I inked them, and later colored them partially with Sharpies.
And then yesterday and today I added some Photoshop coloring to it. And it took FOREVER.
I'm still pretty new to Photoshop coloring techniques, but I like how it came out. I suppose since it's just a comic strip, I'm excused for it not being epic.


Er, right, so this strip: Persephone is out with her mother and friends. Persephone saw a flower she liked and wandered out of sight. Then Hades rose from the ground and kidnapped her.

Hades has a beard.
And Persephone's hair is supposed to be brown, not orange. Something weird happened during the scanning and photoshopping process.

Oh, and originally Persephone was supposed to be saying something in the last panel, but it looked better without it. So the only words are two sound effects, "yoink" and "rrsh".
