Helios by JessiBeans Helios by JessiBeans
I know, I know, Helios wasn't female... but I like the name.

Anyway! Part 1 of 2, this is the sun. Fairy. Sun fairy.
Woo!

Selene is here ----> [link]

Hemera, Goddess of the dawn. Either way I love it.

Eos perhaps? Still relates to the sun and Selene, but is female.

Very pretty, however.

My reliance on black lines annoy me sometimes, but it's great to see them here because it makes me confident I can eventually come up with something lovely without losing my precious lines. Thanks so much for encouraging me with this beautiful piece!

She seems a lot more innocent and... naive than Selene, if you ask me. Wonderful job all the same!

If you want a Sun Goddess there's always Amaterasu.
And I'm betting you're a fan of Amy Brown. She's a nice lady, I got her to sign some stuff for a friend of mine who really likes fairies but is unable (read: unwilling) to go to ComiCon where she often appears. I think a little more push and pull with the heaviness of the line and the dimensionality of everything could yield some interesting results.

Lovely painting, I must say. Circe was the daughter of Helios and shared his properties, you could just change the name of the picture.

I adore the folds. You've come close to master folds, they always look gorgeous in your work. I'm also loving her headdress, it's different, I like that. In a good way! Wonderful work.

I do hope you'll do more Greek mythology-related work :) Obviously you've already done loads of mythology art, but I'd love to see more!

very nice! your stuff is always so well structured and solid. i think it would look cooler with thinner or less obtrusively black lines though - not this picture specifically but your style in general.
