Hera by yangtianli Hera by yangtianli
Yep, she is my version of Hera from the greek myth.

This is actually made for an online challenge that a Chinese forum I usually go to. Though I was really busy, the forum invited several brilliant artists as judges, and they will give critics on each painting. Therefore I squeezed my time out for this painting.

Though Hera is normally seen as a mean bitch (excuse me! haha), I think it's all Zeus's fault for flirting with every girl he sees. And for Hera being so loyal to her husband, I just wanted to make a positive appearance for her. What's more, from my research she was depicted as a very graceful and beautiful woman too. So, I made her to be a goodness that punishes every other girl that flirts with her husband, ha ha.

the challenge required Hera to have red hair and peacock elements related armers. So if you are wondering, that's why. I designed her weapon to be a whip with three spirits of fire. fire of jealousy and anger.

woah, that was a lot of description. Anyway, hope you enjoy! :)

Hercules Hercules Hercules! I like his story steal golden apples for godesses, steal the belt of chastity from amazonian godess, and take the three headed dog tryant to Gandolf to guard the philosphers stone. That guy yes a myth but bad ass.
Peace!

It's not easy to make Hera strong while not turning her into a bitch from Hell but this is just awesome!

This work looks a bit unfinished compared to the details and elaborate designs in your other works, but you managed to capture her viciousness and pwoer very well through expression and color.
