Hades and Persephone by Lelia Hades and Persephone by Lelia
Another pencil practice, this time I drew Hades and Persephone. Why always Hades appear in movies as the villain? Zeus is a worst god than Hades.


Artwork is Me

IKR! Zeus is a fucking rapist. Who said Hades raped Persephone anyway?

Agreed! Hades, at least, is faithful (mostly).

Most people: omg gasp omg
Hades: I don't give a fuck.
I just loooove that it portrays his personality so well!
(Even though I feel he'd go 'hormonal teenage boy' just at the mention of her!)

More please.  Out of the Brother Hades does seem like the one least likely to cause issues with his man bits.  Every time there is a storm at sea Posiden is cheating on his wife.

I know right!? Hades is soooo much better than Zeus. Not to mention how charismatic he is <3 Hades is not evil, he's just dark. Persephone is lucky and I love how she grew to love him soon after his abduction.

Agreed, I hate how he's always protrayed as the bad guy simply because he's the God of th Underwolrd. This is great work! :D :+fav:

Maybe it's because we humans naturally fear the unknown, darkness, and death.

Which is a load of bs if you ask me...death isn't always bad...it could signify the beginning of a new life!

In my opinion, in the myths, Zeus was supposed to show that being powerful doesn't always mean being fair or good guy... I actually dislike Zeus from all the gods....

first i love this pic is hot and really well drawn with pencil, second anyone else always think the original myth was just way out of character for hades cause when ever he is in or mentioned in the other myths he is the calm and collected type not the hey look a random goddees lets kidnapp and rape her, just dosent match. sorry for rant hades is my favorite god fom any mythology and i love him with persephone.

Not exactly 'left over', Hades/Persephone was used to explain winter, so He HAD to take the goddess of spring. There are plenty of other minor goddesses he could've had.

Hades gets flak from the church on the basis that his name is another name for Hell if I recall correctly. Very sexy, I imagine Zeus would be all over her when she did that to him
