Valles by depingo Valles by depingo
Another one from the secret stash of paintings I have tucked away ;)

Painted a whiiile back for Legend of the Cryptids - this was supposed to be some sort of goddess kept prisoner in the underworld if I recall correctly. Hope you like :)

This is really an awesome piece of ark. Brings so many questions about who she is, where she belongs etc. Love it!

First look at it, and it reminded me of Persephone -- the goddess of the underworld who was kidnapped and then taken by Hades just after as he drew the lot for what he shall lord over. 

The gentleness of her features as well as the slight graceful flow of her hair upwards just catches my eyes (And my breath) 
This is really well done, as the look on her face is priceless and you just want to tell her, that somehow "it would be all right". The curve of those lips to the sights she's looking onto, you can just feel for her.

And then you see the dark, myriad chains that hang behind her grasping her hands in tens of times over. Securing her quite safely, and unfortunately securely. And with the drape of her clothes, you can see that she isn't the type who would easily break free, and that her captor isn't the cocky one with all those chains.

The way she's crouched over the jagged rocks, and how her feet rests uncomfortably as she tries to struggle in vain is also quite pretty. In the shadows you can still spot it, and you were thoughtful enough to secure that it's obvious that she can't break free nor walk to anywhere else (Jagged rocks galore to her background) Which paints a picture of the perfect damsel who's depressed (Distress is quite not the word for this)

Well done! :heart:

I really love to see it that I'm not the only one who knows how to give thoughtful commentary.  I love your comment; I like how you compared this picture to an actual story in Greek mythology.  Clap deviantART Clap Huggle! 

Please continue to feed other artists that are hungry for thoughtful commentary.

I really like a lot of what kuricurry said to you in the above comment.  She really took a lot words out of my mouth.  But what I would like to add to what she said is that when I look at her facial expression, I don't see concern for herself as much as I do great distress for what she sees taking place.  I could see it that she's seeing something happen in the distance or beyond a void and she feels so helpless at being able to stop it.  It's like she just witnessed someone she loved very dearly get killed in a very horrible and unjust way, and there was nothing she could do.  I wonder what took place, and/or who it was that just got killed. 

I guess you gave the woman such light coloring in a dark background because you wanted to add emphasis to how she really stands out in that place, and just how much she doesn't belong there.  She's really out of her element.  She who is gentle, pleasant, and nurturing in a place that is harsh, loathsome, and void of life.

If there is any story to this picture, I would love to see it.  Your Work is Sweet!  Clap Clap deviantART deviantART Clap Clap

I don't write stories for my paintings - I much prefer it when people come up with their own interpretations like you did here! Thank you for the lovely and thoughtful comment :)
