Andromeda by AlexandraVBach Andromeda by AlexandraVBach
Ok, so here is my (first) collaboration with ~Pinkabsinthe ! Ksenia and I wanted to work together for some time but I always was so busy with commissionned art ! So when she proposed me to work on her awesome pictures, I couldn't say anything but a big yes and here is the result :)

Model (not stock !) : Viky Arger
Photography by : Margot
Project Rotten Pearl 
Pinkabsinthe created outfit and jewelry
Picture is copyright Ravendusk.com / Pinkabsinthe Ksenia Mikhaylova

Stocks : =zememz =SalsolaStock *CHEYENNE75

As soon as I got the pic I knew that I had to do something related to Andromeda and her story en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Andromed…

In Greek mythologyAndromeda is the daughter of Cepheus, an Aethiopian king, and Cassiopeia. When Cassiopeia's hubris leads her to boast that Andromeda is more beautiful than the NereidsPoseidon sends a sea monster to ravage Aethiopia as divine punishment.[1] Andromeda is chained to a rock as a sacrifice to sate the monster, but is saved from death by Perseus, her future husband. (source Wikipedia)

She does act in a restrained way, The monster legs are amazing, I thought at first it was an octopus. This is gorgeously done. :clap: :clap:

It should be an octopus,Cetus. ;) (Wink)  Andromeda's mother Cassiopeia boasted that her daughter was more beautiful than the Nereids. So Andromeda is punished to be chained to a rock as a sacrafice to state the angry monster of the sea but Perseus saved her. ;) (Wink)

Did you made that story up and who's Perseus?

No,it's a greek myth. Perseus is Andromeda's husband. He slew the monster (Cetus) and, setting her free, claimed her in marriage. He is half-god and also son of Zeus and Danaë which is dauther of Acrisius,King of Argos.

I see this theme very often, as do we all, but I can't recall ever seeing it done quite this well. From the conception to the execution, this is a beautiful take on this classic scene.
