Eris (Greek Ἔρις, "Strife") is the Greek goddess of strife, her name being translated into Latin as Discordia. Her Greek opposite is Harmonia, whose Latin counterpart is Concordia.

The most famous tale of Eris recounts her initiating the Trojan War. The goddesses Hera, Athena and Aphrodite had been invited along with the rest of Olympus to the forced wedding of Peleus and Thetis, who would become the parents of Achilles, but Eris had been snubbed because of her troublemaking inclinations, tossed into the party the Apple of Discord, a golden apple inscribed Kallisti "For the most beautiful one", or "To the Fairest One" provoking the goddesses to begin quarreling about the appropriate recipient.

wikipedia mode off.

well, Eris was always one of my favorite characthers, i like a lot how the guys of dramwork designed her in the simbad movie, but i wanted to do a more younger/spoiled/tsundere, dunno why somekind of human midna, lol.... i do this pic in the beggining of june... my wacom was on the "doctor" the last week :( no new stuff... Also, did you know Eris is the largest known dwarf planet in the Solar System and the ninth largest body known to orbit the Sun directly. It is approximately 2,500 kilometres in diameter and 27% more massive than Pluto :)

She reminds me of Morrigan from the Dragon Age series.

Wow, nice one! Can't wait to see what Hestia, Demeter and Dyonysus will look like. There really aren't a lot of stories about these three, but I think there was one that was mentioned in a "Percy Jackson" book, where Zeus was apparently pissed at Dyonysus about something. So now every time Dyo' tried to pour some wine and take a swig, the wine would turn to water. Best quote ever when it happened: "I hear the Catholics worship a guy that can do this in reverse - now THAT'S a GOD."

Great job as always, keep going! :)
