This site (of your web-comic) is very confusing and I do not know which is the first manga, the second and the others...
zeldacw Featured By Owner May 10, 2015  Professional Artist
Since I didn't design the site, I can't do anything about it being confusing (sorry about that),
but I did take that into consideration and that's why I have placed this following description to each MYth title. It's visible under the comic title, above chapter titles. You'll have to expand it to see the full description though...

MYth is a collection of original short stories inspired by the classic Greek mythology. (follow panels RIGHT to LEFT)

[x]My Seasons: (2007-2008) Story of Hades and Persephone
[x] Eternal Gift: (2009-2010) Story of Poseidon and his queen.
[x] A Promise: (2010-2013) Story before the Olympians.
[x] Will (2014): Story of Hera's decision.
[x] Distillation (2014) Birth of Athena
[+] Inflammation (2014-ongoing) From a delicate little spark, the strongest flame arises...

Only thing missing is Zeus as his father and Aphrodite has a faithful and loving wife.

Hera, if you break Heph's heart here too, I'll hate you

your link for Hephaestus doesn't work anymore T.T
where can I read about him (he's one of my favorite Greek Gods)
zeldacw Featured By Owner Feb 4, 2014  Professional Artist

I just love how you did her face. It's anime-style yet so naturalistic.

Pretty! Wonderful art. :heart:

This is probably my favorite piece that you've done...just to throw my two cents in here, has anyone read 'The Goddess Legacy' by Aimee Carter? It tells a wonderful rendition of the Greek Goddesses stories, from a very different perspective from the norm. They maintain the Hera we 'know', while also incorporating a side that nobody could have guessed, explaining exactly why she became the woman she was. It's a very touching story, particularly the part dealing with Hephaestus, and I recommend reading it. After reading your story of course :heart:
zeldacw Featured By Owner Aug 4, 2013  Professional Artist
thanks ^^
I'll probably read mythology related stuff AFTER I finish the MYth works...
so I don't get..."distracted" while creating them. XD
SailorCosplayer Featured By Owner Aug 5, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
Hahaha I totally understand. I read several books at once, my husband has no idea how I can keep them all straight xD

It's so ironic! I mean, she's the goddess of family and marriage and ended up throwing her own kid from a mountain!
The poor guy ended up scarred for life!
Literally and figuratively!

Awesome job anyway!
fbi12345 Featured By Owner Oct 4, 2013
Well she is the Goddess of Womanhood, Wives, Marriage and Birth, NOT FAMILY! The family part goes to Hestia, who is the Goddess of The Hearth, which is considered the center of Family.

Yaaayyy Hera!! I love herr!! So cutie Haphaestusss ^^
KalahariMeerkatfan Featured By Owner Jun 17, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
This is the first time I seen your Hera She seems to frown in most of the other pictures you have done of her (though she is elegant).

Poor Hephy, I think he's good looking in your style and the tones makes a good scene for this. It's soft and comforting but sweet.

Is Hephaestus the brother of Ares? (I was looking and...the mythology is complicated).

I hope to see more of him

I can only say: beautiful. The emotion in this... the mother's love, the child's vulnerability, all is emphasized by the soft colours. Really beautiful.

Will there be a story about him?
Akatsuki-no-Aiko Featured By Owner May 12, 2013
Oh, I really enjoy Mother/child pictures... I find this one so sweet. What an awesome expression you gave her (even if it's just a dream). Ah! but why... that's in the dreams that all we want can come true... but when you wake up it's over and sometimes you have that weird/bad feeling all the day (that's what happend to me last night). Poor little abandoned child...
You did an incredibly great job with this the colours look so pretty and the hair, feather, tissues... and how they melt with the things around... are lovely!

Yeah I think Hephaestus was the favorite child of Hera. It's nice to see her looking so maternal here hehe.
VaruneGlacies Featured By Owner May 12, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
Wow this is truly a beautiful picture. I love your pics of Hera but this one is by far one of the best you've done. In fact it's one of your best pictures yet. Just has something about it that makes it stick out above all your other pieces you've done and I really enjoy seeing pics like that it's not often you find one that's so moving and expresses so much.

I can't wait to see Hephaestus as an adult, are you going to have a story of Hephaestus and Aphrodite?
