Selene by JessiBeans Selene by JessiBeans
Part 2 of 2, this is Selene, named after the greek goddess of the moon, who fell in love with a beautful shepherd, but afraid to watch him age and die, blessed him with eternal sleep to keep him with her always, dreaming of holding the moon in his arms.

I loved that story, though this image doesn't have so much to do with that, this is just my moon fairy. Woo!

Helios is here ---> [link]

Am writing a book about Selene and Endymion and their children. Love that people know who she is. Most people have looked at me blankly when I tell them about this myth

Did Rogue from X-men inspire this at all? She seems to share hair stylists with her.

Awesome work! I love the colors and the different shades of purple you put into here; it gives it such a mystical quality. I love her staff, but feel sorry for her and that shepherd - that is no way for someone to love another. Should have asked Zeus for immortality and eternal youth...

Artemis is a moon goddess, but Selene is the moon personified. :D

Like the difference between Helio and Apollo? I'm more interested in Artemis, but maybe that's just because I know very little about Selene.

Endymion... my friend actually has a 4 year old she named Endymion. Endy for short. Good story and good picture that has nothing to do with it XP

After Helios i'll use her for a costume and I'll carry an even bigger banner that will read "IT'S NOT MY IDEA SO BACK OFF YOU SODS!" and underneath in bigger red letters it will say "PROPERTY OF TATTEREDDREAMS" and they will all scratch their heads in wonder at who could've come up with such a wonderful idea. :giggle: just picture it :giggle:
