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  :)

but thats a cool picture Paul, you should do the rest of the figures. I'd like to see who you would make into the zephyrs (aka those wind people in the corner  :))

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.  :D

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.
