Calliope - Heroic Poetry Picture

Running out of inspiration, I decided why not draw the Muses? I've always loved Greek Mythology, ever since I was just a kid. The Muses have always been the source of inspiration for artists and writers.

Of all the muses, she is the wisest and most assertive, which I tried to portray through her facial expression. She has been painted with a gold crown, and a roll of paper or books. This is my interpretation of her. So while there are similarities to other artists' paintings of her, it is strictly my version.

Hope you enjoy! (Took a long time and a lot of hand pain xP)
