Pandora opens the box


I did a little research before I drew this. In the original myth Pandora has a jar. I wanted to draw a box so I did. Also if you can't tell I like drawing hair. It is a fun design element.

  18. You've used the coloured pencils with grace and sophistication. I like the expression on her face. She looks quite indifferent and oblivious of what may come out from her opening the box.

  38. I also did Pandora! I've seen at least one other... I wonder how many Pandoras there were?

    At any rate, fantastic piece! I'm in the show too and, small world, I live in Long Beach! I'll be seeing your beautiful illustration in person.

  40. Tell her to close the box, she is not aware of what is going to come out, look at her face, at peace, like an angel, go, run, tell her!

    Charming work, bravissima!
