Eurydice by sorskc Eurydice by sorskc
Eurydice going back into the underworld after Orpheus turned around to look at her. I think I'm going to make a drawing of Orpheus to go with it! He'll be facing the opposite direction and look all mopey and stuff.

This is the best quality I can get at the moment, I only have a crappy digital camera and I'm not good at photographing artwork anyway. I may edit this with a better photo next week, if I can get my boss to take one for me~

Gouache & colored pencil on illustration board

Who are Orpheus and Eurydice?
Reply
:iconsorskc:
sorskc Featured By Owner Sep 16, 2010  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
They're from Greek mythology~ a quick synopsis of their story would be that Orpheus was an amazing musician and Eurydice was his wife. She died, and he went to the underworld to get her back. When he found Hades, the god of the dead (or maybe it was his wife, I can't remember) he played a song so beautiful and sad that they agreed to give Eurydice back to him. All he had to do was walk out of the underworld, and trust them that she was following him without looking back. But he was so eager that before he got to the exit, he turned to check and see if she was really there. She was, but since he broke the condition, she went back to the underworld and he lost his chance. :o

You know, I recall seeing this in passing AGES ago, and saving it to my hard drive because of the lovely folds in her skirt. Now that I pause again, I notice particularly the reddish points on her body--they are a very effective touch, I'm glad you put them in and didn't just leave it mostly monochrome. And that hair is giving me chills, it's so accurately drawn.

The touches of red is one detail I think a lot of people don't notice, so thanks! I like to add a little bit of pink to fingertips and cheeks and such, I feel like it adds a bit of realism even if it isn't very noticeable. :D

I love the hair and the dress, but her boobs look like the dress is really tight but the dress looks like it fits fairly loosely. they're too perky. but it's really good, i suck at profile.

sorskc Featured By Owner Mar 18, 2009  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Well, the idea is that the top of the dress is really tight, and the bottom of the dress is really loose. So I guess I captured what I was going for. ;)
