The Greek Goddess #Sketch





Today's mythological #Sketch comes to us from our Manchester studio 2D Renderer Louise Haywood! Louise gives us a glimpse into the world of Greek mythology with her interpretation of the Greek goddess Herophile. 

Louise: I created this piece whilst listening to an Audiobook about Greek Mythology. This painting is my interpretation of the Greek goddess Herophile, daughter of Poseidon and Aphrodite; a half human, half water nymph oracle.

At the age of 900 everyone from her youth had died so she left her home and settled in a nearby cave with a spring.

I completed the painting in Clip Studio Paint on the iPad Pro. Previously I had been exploring backgrounds and I wanted to experiment with a finished character within a scene.

The sketch was worked up from a rough gesture drawing done in pencil as part of a figure drawing practice session. I especially liked the way the model's fabric almost appeared to have movement and I felt the pose lent itself to the emotions evoked in the myth.
