Hera by cheungygirl Hera by cheungygirl
This was for an art project, where i decided to paint the Greek Goddess Hera. She was the wife (and sister lol) of Zeus thus was the Queen of the Olympian dieties. She was usually depicted with a diadem, veil and scepter and her sacred animal is the peacock (symbol of pride), the pomegranate is also dedicated to her. Hope I did a good enough job!!

Check out my blog! :D

This is a beautiful depiction of a misunderstood goddess. I love the coloring and shading you used to create her details. This is a beautiful piece.

You did a very good job. Looks totally like Hera to me, although it suits the image I have of her.

Nice art! I would like to ask for permission if it's okay to have your art be part of my list on my site? I am looking forward to feature some great gods and goddesses on my site. You can check out my site here, at the bottom. Of course I'll put a credit that this is your own art. :)
Hope you'll agree! \(^_^)/

My favorite Hera image so far, I love the elegance of the post, the simplicity of the composition and her hair is scrumptious.

I searched: "Hera" in dA, and all kinds of "epic" (but really just stupid) stuff came up. I'm glad someone is making an accurate, beautiful picture of Hera.

Good work!
