These three goddesses are the Greek Aphrodite, the Egyptian Hathor, and the Norse Freya. Each of them had love and fertility as part of their domains in their respective cultures. Also, this gave me an opportunity to draw a trio of women from different ethnic and cultural backgrounds.
My three goddesses of love—the Greek Aphrodite, the Egyptian Hathor, and the Norse Freya—now have some color for further beautification!
Picking Aphrodite’s skin tone was a bit tough as I wanted her to have a tawny Mediterranean complexion, but adding highlights made it seem paler than it was supposed to be. Also, I added a Norse valknut symbol to Freya’s cheek partly to indicate her Norse identity, but also because I think “tribal” face paint looks good on ancient Northern Europeans.
