ACEO #09 : Quietus : The light behind your eyes Picture

The white snow falls (I cannot see)
Say it to me in a way that I can understand
I hear You call (Loud and clear)
It melts my heart (Take my fear)
Show me how to see the love that brings serenity
On my black heart (In front of me)

— by Serenity by Fireflight

This is fanart for AngeLhearteD's Quietus. A fanfic which is modern take on abduction myth and combines Naruto's characters with ancient greek mythology. The classical mythological subject of the Rape of Persephone to be exact with Sasuke as Hades and Sakura as Persephone.

First in a series of four aceo's, thought I'd start with Hinata as my last Quietus fanart was of her. I've been working on this last two days on & off and finished it just now. It's been a while since I did an aceo for quietus. I believe the last one was Circle of Life, which I did in march 2012 which a kinda a very long time ago.

  • I wanted portray Selene/Hinata as she would appear in maybe in epilogue as I think it will be a while before anyone has reasons to celebrate in Quietus. Not to mention her design doesn't scream innocent as tend draw before hell broke loose in story/far past.

  • I wanted to keep trend I started earlier so gave her a different kind of style then say Kore/Persephone (Sakura) a Chthonic deity and Aphrodite (Ino) who an Olympian. As a second generation Titaness and a minor goddess I wanted her to different yet elegant look. As always my sources of inspiration were Margaery Tyrell (Natalie Dormer) in Game of Thrones and Princess Serenity from Sailormoon. However I also added armor even if it looks like jewelry to show the past left it's mark.

  • It's been awhile since I've used Mucha inspired decoration and I wanted add something fancy. not to mention it suits Quietus.
