RfO Bookmarks - Set 1 by TheDutchesse RfO Bookmarks - Set 1 by TheDutchesse
Availability: Still available. (Persephone and Artemis are sold out)
Price: 1,50 per bookmark
Specifics: Single-sided and laminated.
More Info:

Other Sets:

The first bunch of the bookmarks that I've finished.

There's:

Hestia with Swallows, Anthurium and an Oak tree.
Persephone with Parakeets (Alexandrine and Long Tailed), Narcissuses and a Maidenhair Fern.
Hades with a Screech Owl, Asphodel and a Cypress Tree
Artemis with a Quail, Thistle and a Laurel Tree

Please don't comment saying "But isn't Athena's bird an owl?" or "But those birds don't even come from Greece" or "Those flowers are totally wrong."
I did my research and I did it thoroughly. The only one I couldn't find anything for was Hestia, of whom I looked up plants and birds representing 'home' and fire.
Capiche?

Anyway you haven't seen Hestia yet, so here she is. The others should all be familiar to you if you've watched me for a while xD

This is absolutely beautiful.

You most definitely did your research when it came to the foliage, animals, and colors for each of these special Deities.

Each have their own appearance, their own personality illuminating the specific 'bookmark' that they're in.

:3 Well done, I say! And it's good to see some Hestia action!

I did more research on this than I've probably ever done for any kind of project, including school >.> Researched jewelry, plants, birds. It was so damned HARD to find some of the sacred birds for these, especially for Hades.

Hestia deserves some action, she was one of the first 3 Goddesses after all. Psht.

Hades is normally associated with a ram, and Athena, an owl...
Reply
:iconthedutchesse:
TheDutchesse Featured By Owner May 9, 2010  Student Digital Artist
Yes, but do rams fly? Right. Screech Owls are associated with the underworld and seen of bad omens and death.

Get a Wacom, hands down.
Ihave one of the older Wacom Bamboo's and it works just fine for me. I have the smallest size, yet no troubles with it, so if you have a tight budget than a small Bamboo would do just fine.
