A Series of drawings of Goddesses and Gods

Some time ago I began developing a series of drawings based on several creation myths and the goddesses and gods who helped tell the stories. I had all but forgotten about them when I found them again so I thought I'd share them.

This was the drawing that started it depicting Persephone emerging from Hades' underworld as her mother, Demeter, re-births her into a new life in the land of the living (a bit more to it than that, but you get the idea):

Hades, Aphrodite & Demeter

After that I started researching creation myths
