The Moirae by xlopp The Moirae by xlopp
Yep!! Another dev for the Myths&Legends contest [link]

I had to work quickly cause it ends next sunday!! It usually takes me days or even weeks to finish my drawings but with this one, this morning when I woke up it came to my mind and now it's done!! A bit rough but well, I'm satisfied :)

The theme is the Moirae, three goddesses of the Greek Mythology who were responsible for all being's lifes. They hang the threads of life that Clotho spins (birth), Lachesis weaves alloting the fate (lifetime) and finally Atropos cuts with her golden scissors (death).

If you notice, the expressions of each Moirae is different: Clotho is happy for bringing a new life to the world, but Lachesis suffers with the various sorrow and pain that is in every life. Atropos looks impassive, giving death without caring about age, status or personality.

And yes, Moirae don't control only human lifes but also Divine ones...

Hope you like it!! it has been hard work!! ;p
