SMTPxLP: The Priestess Picture

Had this around for a while...why I didn't post it sooner is beyond me. Anyway, another part of the Let's Play Persona project, featuring Donnabellez (of the Priestess arcana) and her Persona, Hebe.

Hebe is the Greek goddess of youth, the daughter of Zeus and Hera, and later married to Heracles (not Hercules, Hercules was Roman, Disney screwed up your brain). She was also the goddess of pardons and forgiveness, and freed prisoners would hang their chains in the sacred grove of her sanctuary at Phlius.

Design-wise, I mainly meant to invoke a Katamari (from Donna's Katamari Damacy LP), notable with the sphere motif. Granted, a Persona made of balls probably would've been better for Lucahjin and I probably should've gone for an appearance that referenced Baxter (her chihuahua), but I had already started inking before I thought of that. XD

In battle, Hebe would mainly be a healing Persona, though would also have access to strong Agi (fire-based) spells, much like Yukiko and Konohana Sakuya/Amaterasu from Persona 4. Not sure what Donna's normal attack weapon would be. Any suggestions? (And no, not Baxter!) Nevermind, I got it: bow and arrow. Perfect reference to her current LP, too! (For those not familiar with Donna, her current LP is Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask.)

Donnabellez belongs to herself, and if you attempt to lay claim to hher, you are a very bad liar.
