Created for Illustration Friday. I was inspired when researching the topic (Might) by the story of "Mighty Aphrodite". This illustration depicts the might of the sculptor's attraction to the statue he created... and she then comes to life!

The composition was inspired by Angelo Bronzino's work "Pygmalion und Galatea".

Thanks for checking out my work!

Oh, wow, very nice painting. I love the textures and how the color comes out showing she's alive. Nice effect.
