King of the Kings by IRCSS King of the Kings by IRCSS
Good day everyone ^^

"If you are looking at the greatest personages in History who have affected the World, 'Cyrus the Great' is one of the few who deserves that epithet, the one who deserves to be called 'the Great'. The empire over which Cyrus ruled was the largest the Ancient World had ever seen and may be to this day the largest empire ever'." (Professor Richard Nelson Frye)

So yesterday was the universal day of Cyrus The Great (don't ask why, cause I dunno, maybe it was his birth day ^^!) and I had 1 hour to spare so I just ended up painting this.
This is a very quick, rough painting as it took only 40 minutes (or maybe less), so pardon the roughness, I don't have time to refine it.

Oh, One more thing the staff next to him is added only for composition purpose, as a matter of fact the staff belongs to King Darius, not Cyrus.

And finally happy anniversary to all Persian fellows as I am sure it is an important day to all fellow Iranian^^

Well done! Clap 
I really feel like a satrap awaiting the King's orders. It's a moment of suspense, I'm wondering what he's going to say or do. What is he thinking? what calculations are being made in that mind? This man came into my world and turned it upside down, so I've learned that I should expect the unexpected from him. I'm excited and scared, what is he planning? The darkened corners are great, it simulates wearing a helmet or headdress, or maybe I'm squinting in the sunlight being reflected off those snowy mountains. Sometimes rough is good, I can almost feel the wind on my cheek. The way the mitra is at just a little bit of an angle is genius. (if you didn't intend that then it's accidental genius!) real people's heads aren't perfect circles, so hats and crowns don't necessarily rest perfectly on the middle of your head. It just adds that nice touch of realism that really draws a viewer in. You did this in an hour? I'm so jealous. I don't think I could make something this nice in several days.
