I started this painting in the summer some time, and in between not having time and other art I never got around to finishing it.
If I don't finish a painting in a short timeline there's a good risk of me getting bored with it, which is sort of what happened with this one, but I picked it up again in November for whatever reason, fiddled with it and it finished it.
This is Eros, the god of love in Greek mythology (though better known for his Roman role as Cupid), he is the son of Aphrodite and Ares. This was inspired by my browsing through Bouguereau paintings on my harddrive, and then re-inspired by a Dollfie I had who was named Eros
Thanks for looking~!

Eros by =yumedust is attractive and beautiful at the same time. In this piece of art we can feel the cool air and the magical effect of this wonderful painting. It's so tender, peaceful and soft that makes you want to touch the feathers for real. ( Suggested by FunkyButterfly and Featured by JunkbyJen )

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! \(^_^)/

Mm, very nice. Although, Eros was originally viewed as the being Protogonos or Phanes, who was generation and life. The third - sometimes fourth - being to exist in Greek mythology, and was the first rule of the universe, who created winged animals after fighting with his creator, Chaos.

How do you do this? I know it's because of tools there are now that we didn't have back then, but have you seen some of the "greatest masterpieces known to man"? They have NOTHING on this.
