Daphne and Apollo Picture

Just an early morning doodle. This is Daphne and Apollo. This is actually my second attempt at this concept (me thinks I like this one better)

The myth: Apollo was struck by one of Cupid's arrows, in vengeance for sassing him - and it made him fall in love with the nymph, Daphne. But Cupid also struck Daphne with an arrow - one that made her repulsed by the thought of love. Apollo chased her feverishly, and she ran from his charms. As Daphne fled from Apollo, she cried out to her father Peneus, the River god, to help her. He turned her into a Laurel tree. From there on, Apollo honored the Laurel, by wearing crowns of laurel leaves and making the tree sacred.
