Actually, Paris started the war by seducing Helen away from her husband.....she' a cheating wife, a beautiful one that 'launched a thousand ships' to bring her back...supposedly against her will.

At first I didn't see "Helen of Troy" up at the top, only HOT. And I thought, "Duh." Now I think, "But of course." What a lovely picture.

Too good.

Hey, I just started a blog where people can post art celebrating the female form, cause what's more fun than drawing naked ladies right? It's called "boobies n' booties" haha, hopefully it'll be fun, and if it grows maybe it'll be another outlet for artists to get exposure. I'm inviting all my favorite artists on my watchlist to submit and class up the place, I know it's a longshot because you're Adam frickin Hughes and you're probably very busy, but I'd love if you submitted this or any of your other sexy lady pieces. Here goes the [link]

*fave'd* ... The comment immediately below stole my punchline {grin}

So that leaves me with merely asking: How DO you manage to get such sensuousness into so few well-chosen lines? Not that the minimal color doesn't help, by the way.

To me, this spare imagining of her suggests its use on Greek pottery of the time, as in the tiny and beautiful fraction which has survived. Of course, your three dimensions of perspective add far more life to it.
