Thureophoros n.1 by Merlkir Thureophoros n.1 by Merlkir
First of three thureophoroi for an EB II artwork. I won't be able to finish the other two for a while so I'm posting this one now. (it's because of those damned exams ;)) If you don't have a clue who he might be, wikipedia is your friend:

Sketch was in pencil and the rest is all digital, it took about 7 hours.

edit: I realized I upped an unfinished version here :D reuploaded the final one + added some additional contrast/color correction.

I thought that is the copper cups used by Hellenistic military personnels throughout Alexander's conquests...

Anyhow, faved. History, especially of the Antiquities, needs that much more love, don't you agree?

i completely agree, i prefer the time of the Greeks. =) history is definitely important and interesting. im also a sucker for antiques, but not any antique, it has to fit my personality.

it's not omnipotent and it's definitely not always right as a source about ancient warfare. But it's useful. :)

It's quick and not so heavy like encyclopaedias. In fact we use them only when we must weigh down home-made wafers :XD:

I use my human anatomy book for pressing down sheets of paper in the scanner (the lid broke off). Yep, heavy books have their uses..

Really great. The cloth-effects on his shirt-thingie are really good.

Only thing I'm not so keen on is the head, seems too small. Although as always, this might just be from my perspective.

remember, head is 1/8 of the body's height :) for a man. I think it's acceptable..
And I've spent a lot of time on that tunic :D

Oh! I thought it was 1/7.. I guess it varies..

And the time you used has really paid off :D

it depends on body build. Women are 6-7 heads I think...
