Circe the enchantress by Harpyqueen Circe the enchantress by Harpyqueen
In Greek mythology, Circe was an enchantress;daughter of Helios. She lived on an island of Aeaea.
she transformed her enemies, or those who offended her, into animals using magical potions.
She was renowned for her knowledge of drugs and herbs.
According to the Odyssey, she changed the crew of Odysseus's ship into swine, but with the aid of Hermes, Odysseus forced her to break the spell.
it is said that she bore Odysseus a son, Telegonus, who unwillingly killed his father.

I've always really liked Circe, probably because she's alot like me =D

Definitely, the main part about this that draws me in, is her lips. They give much to her expression, and, aside from her hands and the feather in them, it shows the greater side of her elegance, without sternness. =)
