You've caught it well - the use of other materials also make a slight difference in impression, it's softer.
Only thing I think that would make it better would be adding clavi (a purple-red stripe at the edge of the toga that designates the wearer as senator), even if it isn't in the original.

This is cool as hell. The Romans were the shit.

Awesome reproduction. You can almost feel a dark aura around Catiline

i'm translating this as we speak for my latin course lol, in catilinam (the first speech)

Thanks! It was a challenge to reproduce, but also a learning process.

Lovely piece!

It's such a great scene (even if it does remind me of an awful Latin class where we had to translate one of the In Catilinam speeches) and you've done a wonderful job, especially with the lighting/shading and capturing the atmosphere of the original.

Thanks! It was definitely a challenging painting to execute, but a learning experience.

...and thanks for the add. :)
