The Fall of Troy - coloured by Cwylldren The Fall of Troy - coloured by Cwylldren
And finally, the fully coloured version!

I think this is more dynamic than the b/w version [link] though aesthetically I think the tinted one [link] is my favourite...

The clothing has more to do with 17th-century visions of greek clothing than actual Greek fashion, but I added the fibula :) With a bit of imagination, she's wearing a chiton with himation...
Her hairstyle was influenced by the Venus of Milo, but I loved the flowing hair of the reference pic so I kept it. She's a goddess, after all. She has her own fashion.

For the story behind this see: [link]

Thanks! Yes, I rather like it. And I get to start a thematic series in the same style - how very grown-up! ;)
