Nyx, Born of Chaos:
nyxbornofchaos_zps3d84e7e8.jpg





Nyx(Ancient Greek: Νύξ, "night") – Nox in Latin translation – is the Greek goddess (or personification) of the night. A shadowy figure, Nyx stood at or near the beginning of creation, and was the mother of other personified gods such as Hypnos (Sleep) and Thánatos (Death). Her appearances in mythology are sparse, but reveal her as a figure of exceptional power and beauty. She is found in the shadows of the world and only ever seen in glimpses.

In Hesiod's Theogony, Nyx is born of Chaos.

-Wikipedia

Model: Ashley Knight, girl I met at a Cafe I frequent.

I certainly don't mind people printing them out as long as someone isn't trying to sell them. I should warn you, though, Nyx is the mother of Dreams. If you try to take credit for the drawing, you could be in for some nasty nightmares. Hehe.

Absolutely wonderful work zoobieshoe. I drew a turkey in 5th grade art class. It looked more like an ostrich.:cry:

Those look very nice. I can't say much else, as my appreciation of art is rather limited. So, it all looks impressive to me.

I haven't read through the old thread, so maybe somebody else pointed this out, but by god, that cafe you go to is filled with incredibly good looking people or what?!

The Hymn of The Eumenides
-by Aeschylus (Turtle Guy)..........................​
Let us now! with solemn step move in accord.
And show in accord
The enthralling might of our music.
Let us tell them of our vengeance :
Let us all make mention of justice.
Whoso showeth hands that are undefiled,
Lo he shall suffer naught of us ever.
But shall go unharmed to his ending.
But, if he hath sinned, like unto this man.
And covereth hands that are blood-stained,
Then is our witness true to the slain man;
And we sue for the blood, sue and pursue for it.
So that at the last there is payment.
Sing then the spell, Sisters of Hell;
Chant him the charm, mighty to harm,
Binding the blood, madding the mood;
Such the music that we make :
Quail, ye sons of men, quail and quake;
Bow the heart, bend, and break.​
-------------------------------------------------------
The poem belongs to the play Orestia's third part Eumenides. Eumenides, Eryines or furies as they were variously called were the Daughters of Night or Nyx, if you will.
It is said that during that scene many of the audience fainted in horror of the dreaded furies.
NOTE: I edited it (a lot) to make the english translation sound better. Translation by Dr. A. W. Verrall
My own poem was inspired by this one.

Thanks much, edward. Turkey, ostrich, same difference.

Thanks, Mepris. The interesting thing is that I'm even better looking than all my models.

Thanks, Caveat. I have some fanatical nonsense posted back on page 23.

If you show me a drawing I can probably tell if you drew it or not. Sure you're drawing is unique, but all the faces are familiar, or there's something common about them.. the look maybe. Is it possible that an artist is influenced by a certain person in his/her drawings?

Ah, I see what you mean. Good observation!

Yes, they're all certainly connected by the choices I make about who to draw and how to depict them. Any given artist will be unconsciously filtering that way, allowing a certain range of things in and excluding a certain range of things. And, you develop the particular technique you develop specifically to be able to render the things you find important.

So, that face you keep seeing is some core, ideal face I've conceived of without being consciously aware of it.

I just posted one two years ago! Boy you're impatient.

Here's a random sketch to hold you a few months:
