Hector vs Achilles by GENZOMAN Hector vs Achilles by GENZOMAN
A old draw... ok, well not so much, arround a month ago or more. when i was a kid i read the iliad by homer, my favorite scene was the combat btween Achilles Vs Hector, a epic battle with two of the greatest warriors of the history. dont wait! go and read the book, is awesome :D

the troy movie is ok too, but if you can, go for the book :D

a draw for myths & legends TCG

Photoshop CS/9 hours or so/intuos/music: W.A: Mozart dies irae (dunno why, but since i was a child i imagine this battle whit this song XD)

Well, this fight was DESTINED to be one-sided for sure.

Hector, skilled as he was, was only human and mortal while Achilles was a demigod with the powers of River Styx that juiced up almost his whole body to be invulnerable(save his heels, of course). It may not have shown that much in the movie but they were not on even grounds. Achilles was basically a warrior on trainers & cheat codes mark-ups in addition to his core skills. When you go one-on-one against an opponent who's under the effect of invulnerability or infinite health you know you're gonna lose.

If you want to be pernickety about it, in the original myth Achilles wasn't invulnerable, he was just such an absurdly good warrior it appeared so, and then that got misinterpreted later.

Very nice! Love It's really something to think a war can be won with a duel or that a king will grovel for his son corpse.

Aquiles, el soldado perfecto... Enfrentándose al gran heroe de Troya, Hector Priamida. Una pelea que, de hecho, no fue de dos ... faqin olimpicos

 Great pic, and I've gotta agree with you, the book is way much better than the movie.  It's nice to meet a fan.

He was killed by Paris with Apollo's aid, but that wasn't in the Iliad

First thing I thought of was the movie, which is sad to me... they should have _at least_ mentioned Cassandra once, but no, not a single time and she was no where to be found... as though she wasn't at all important to the story. My name is Cassandra and that's actually how I got into Greek mythology to begin with.
This picture is awesome though.

Hector stabs Achilles in his heel.

Fight over.

Well, whatever it is, he should clean up this city here...
because this city is like an open sewer, it's full of filth and scum.
Sometimes I can hardly take it.
Whoever becomes the president should just...
really clean it up, know what I mean?
Sometimes I go out and I smell it. I get headaches, it's so bad.
It's like-- They never go away.
It's like the president should clean up this whole mess here.
He should flush it down the fucking toilet.

I heard the movie (though epic, don't get me wrong) is innacurate. Didn't Achilles die before the war?

I love Greek mythology/legends and i love your works.
Ive watched Troy and Ive read the Iliad and that is one of my favorite part of the story, Achilles fights Hector to seek revenge in the death of Patroclus.
jacksonwilliams19 Featured By Owner Jan 9, 2011
I'm making a poster about Achilles, and this picture is really great inspiration for drawing him.
And this is pretty freakin' epic.

So like, he didn't really ruin the post by writing, " wow first comment " ... you guys all ruined the post by arguing over something that really doesn't have anything to do with the actual "ART". after all, it is called "DeviantART" for a reason ^^
