My favorite goddess, the statues of her in the Louvre are so beautiful. Nice job by the way but I'm not too sure I like the flower necklace around the dear. I would have chosen a white flower or perhaps lilacs?

Thank you for your comments! Your flower choices sound better. But I guess I needed more red in the BG somewhere to pull the colors together.

Thanks! The fun part was the clouds--I used blackboard chalk, believe it or not. Great for making mist when you don't have an airbrush.

My goodness, this is amazing! I'm really obsessed with mythology right now and you've really fed my hunger! This is wonderful, the shading is amazing, as is the pose and the positioning! Just lovely :D
