I Promise Picture

An old picture I finished a few months back. I think during spring or midwinter break is when I posted it on my facebook. I still love this picture even though I've improved so much since then! Also, I put a watermark on it because I have planned on selling it as a print to raise money for a new tablet (because mine is very old and bugging out a lot....) but I think I'll wait on that for a while. Just sit back and enjoy, alright? owo

This picture is of Phlegethon and Styx, two characters based on rivers of the Underworld in Greek myths. If you're wondering, it says "Love between best friends" on Styx's forehead, and "I promise" on her clavicle. In Greek mythology it is said that Styx and Phlegethon had fallen in love, but Styx was engulfed by Phlegethon's flames (he is the river of fire, afterall) and sent into Tartarus. My version of the story is pretty much the same, but with a few twists and such. Such as Styx is the keeper of promises, and Phlegethon promised to keep her safe from the "Curse of Erebus", but he himself succumbed and took her life....owo
pretty brutal, actually. I can't believe I wrote such a tragic story when I was in middle school.
But enough of that....I really love these characters. I wish I could tell their story via comic, but I don't think I'm good enough, and I'm not sure people would take interest. ^^

Anyways, I hope you all enjoy this as much as I do! I LOVE how this came out! >w<
See you all next time!
