Persephone and Hades Picture

Thank you very much for all the critiques, tips and support! I am very grateful for that! And I think this may clear up some misconceptions. (:

Persephone seems far too young in this drawing and I'm not happy about it. I am aware of my faults as an artist. But I'm working to fix it. And I'm sorry if I have offended anyone with what I drawing, it was never my intention!

* For those interested in better understanding the story of Hades & Persephone, here and here you can find some texts by Kata about these two gods, its story, society, and mistakes propagated throughout history (I chose only two texts, but browsing on your page you can find more stuff). Homeric Hymns are wonderful too. I hope you enjoy reading and realize that this myth is not as creepy as you might think. But don't forget that this is mythology, so this is not something cute and politically correct (the same goes for fairy tales).

Winter's nigh and summer's o'er
I hear that high and lonesome sound
Of my husband coming for
To bring me home to Hadestown
