Aphrodite Classic Mythology Sketch Card Picture


Aphrodite (√¶frəˈdaɪti/ af-rə-DY-tee; Greek Ἀφροδίτη) is the Greek goddess of love, beauty, pleasure, and procreation. Her Roman equivalent is the goddess Venus.

According to Hesiod's Theogony, she was born when Cronus cut off Uranus' genitals and threw them into the sea, and from the sea foam (aphros) arose Aphrodite. Thus Aphrodite is of an older generation than Zeus.

I completed 25 sketch cards (in both color and greyscale -- a change for me) and a base card for Perna Studios' Classic Mythology trading card set.

Approximately 2 x 3 inches. Copic markers, colored pencil, & white ink on cardstock.
