Hades by redheaded-step-child Hades by redheaded-step-child
Hades, Greek God of the Underworld, who presides over the shadowed realm of the dead with his abducted Queen, Persephone. Although a dark, inflexibly stern God, he is by no means evil, and maintains order in the shrouded lands that bear his name.

He is shown waiting for his beloved Queen's return from her time on Earth during the Spring and Summer months, holding a pomegranate, a reminder of their eternal bond.

Stock used as reference for Hades came from the amazing *justmeina

I love the picture, you truly captured a lonely lovesick feeling to it, however you might want to look at his hand again, the thumb is either on the wrong side or is too thin

Neato~ Gotta feel bad for Hades ya know? Zeus and Poseidon gave him the crappy job of being God of the Underworld, its not a surprise that Hades has a large hate for his brothers.

I think this painting shows a more 'romantic' Hades. Yeah, I DID imagine him a little 'cruel' looking, but this photo completely changes my opinion, and now I prefer him much more. :) Thanks for showing me that side of him xD
