This one was done in a slightly different method to the way I usually do art, this was done by looking at plate I bought in Cyprus, and basically attempted to recrate the pic.

The original picture is called "Birth Of Aphrodite" by Botticelli.  This one is called "Leela Aphrodite" by Paul A. Metcalfe  smile

FSAC is not just about my art, it's for the fans, any art or fictions will be gratefully received.  I'm not going to go on forever, so if I stop, then without support the site would stop, wish will be a great shame, since it seems to have some popularity

Aphrodite (Venus) was the only person on the plate as Cyprus is allegedly her birthplace.

I won't argue, but I prefer the Greek version - Aphrodite and not the Roman version - Venus.

Have you got that pic in a bigger size, if so, please e-mail it to me.

actually i just did a search for "Birth of Venus" and it comes up on a lot of those sites that like to sell reproductions, I duno if there are bigger ones.  That's the only reason the title would matter, if you were doing a search for it.  I think the greek name sounds better too, especially for your picture

I draw them before I answer a post. With a pen, yet! So if I repeat the pics, it's because they work on many different levels.  big grin

On a side note - if anyone noticed, the tapestry-like thingy behind Farquaad's bed in Shrek was also a rendition of The Birth of Venus, only with Farquaad, fully dressed, in the place of Venus.
