I tried to insert fog onto the scene but DAZ studio refused to oblige me. Always ended around 30% with error after 10-11 hours :-(((

Anyway after 2 days of fruitless rendering and thousand oaths I ended up with this.

I had also a difficult time to adjust Hades left hand to grab Persephone's left hand. The result was very ugly and therefore I decided to try my lack with the right hand which ended with a lets say more natural pose.
Anyway we are referring to Hades here and some small discrepancies with pose may be attributed to his deity....

The myth probably is well known to everybody.:
Hades the god of the underworld fell in love with the beautiful Persephone, the daughter of Demeter, the goddess of fertility and agriculture, and decided to kidnap her one day when she and her maids were gathering flowers.
Nobody noticed her desperate cries and Hades manage to bring unseen Persephone to the underworld. Her mother Demeter tried to find her daughter without success and desperate from her loss refused to fertile anymore the earth, bringing people near to catastrophe.
Zeus, the king of gods obliged Hades to give back Persephone to her mother but Hades gave a Persephone a food of the underworld to her in order to make her come every 6 months back to him. This is how summer and winter seasons were born....
