Alecto Picture

A digital painting from a sketch, both of which I worked on a while ago and never which quite felt finished, until recently when I looked at it again, tweaked a few final things, and finally declared it done.

This is Alecto, the leader of the Furies from Greek Mythology, and also the leader of the Guardians from my original fantasy novel in progress, Ikeisha. In my story (as in Greek myths), she and her sisters are in charge of maintaining order and justice and go about punishing those who do wrong. In my story she also fulfils the role of Atropos.
I always liked the Furies and have long been disappointed at the lack of attention they are usually given, which is why I chose to adopt them and make them central to the world of my story.
