Le Serment des Horaces - high' resolution by Eyardt Le Serment des Horaces - high' resolution by Eyardt
Exactly 10 years from now, when I was at school, I did my first acrylic painting, copying the famous "Serment des Horaces" from David.
It was bad, sloppy, but I was so proud of it...
And now, here I am, working in the industry, having fun with monsters and stuff... But never forgot that day, where I thought for the first time, at 17 years old : "Yeah, damn, that' would be cool for a living... and it could be possibile".
A kind of a serment with the Serment.
Maybe in a few years I will do another version of this painting. I will probably do some others of these "reloads" in the next months. But the Horaces have a special place in my heart.

Thanks for the support and all the nice comments... was really a great help for this one ! And never forget : be badass.

Love at first sight: that's what happened to me when I first saw this masterpiece of yours... It's an amazing painting, and the DD is absolutely deserved, but that's not the only reason why I love it. I read your description, and I love the relationship you have with this painting, the story beneath it, and your way to success...
But this story, your story, has another meaning to me: it's the proof that when a piece of art is really great (as the David's "Serment des Horaces") it's immortal, and it always has the power to impress, emotion, move and INSPIRE people: a masterpiece, at least in my opinion, should not be the final step, the last stand, something that's too perfect to even attempt to improve it, but should be the first step for a new process, something to confront to, to get inspiration from...

So, compliments again for this awesome piece of art and... may I feature this in my blog (obviousely giving credit to you and linking to this) to explain the thought I summarized here? Thanks so much in advance, and keep on your great work! Hug

This is simply stunning. So much silent horror in just one marvel of fine modern classic art. I don't know a thing about art, I'm not an expert and I've never made it to concentrate enough to learn about the art of art critic. The only thing I know for sure about myself -since I can feel it having an effect on every aspect of my life- is the fact that I'm a human from a fantasy world trapped in a parallel universe of boredom. Your work makes me want to see through this universe and find my homeland. Or maybe I'm just a deeply depressive person who "feasts" upon the silence and fear of this wonderful piece of art.

Entrancing, stunning, and very well executed. The composition jumps at you, and it tells a very interesting story.

One picture is worth one-thousand words.

That's what the artist's description says. "Le Serment des Horaces" is the French (and original, I think?) title of the painting you're talking about. ^^
