Persephone Picture

Based on the Greek myth about Hades and Persephone.
The winged skull is Charon, ferryman of the river Styx. He's leading Persephone down into the Underworld to meet her husband for the first time.

I worked on this on-and-off for 6 months, the longest time I've ever spent on one piece.

This shot's clearer than the old one.
