1100 BCE, the Trojan War has raged on nearly 10 years.  With the city of Troy in ruins, the heroes take their place among legends.  Achilles, choosing glory over peace, has carved his name into the echos of eternity.  But at what cost?  What a terrible toll immortality takes, carried by the ghosts of thousands..
Achilles has seen some shit, y'all!

New painting for Smite!  One of my favorite projects I've got to work on to date!
Hey come find me out there!  :)

Damn... the blue part is slightly out-of-place, though, as Spartans used warm colors, like brown, red, and brass.

True, but Spartans also didn't have spears like that. Mostly because they'd be a pain in the ass to smith.

I didn't actually realize the spear was like that until now :/

If my memory serves me correct, I believed Spartans used a sword called 'Gladius'? Or was that the gladiators?

 I mean, it looks fancy, but it's not very practical. That's not to say there weren't spears similar in design, if less elaborate. Here's an example, it's based on the leaf spears of the La Tene era Celts. deepeeka.in/leaf-shape-celtic-… The helmet is based on Celtic, Anglo-Saxon, Norse and Roman designs (the Roman contributing to the plates around the ears and the broad neck bill. The leather is studded with steel plates riveted on the interior. Her red tunic is silk and she wears a gorget and a hauberk w/ sewn steel scales. Her red tunic is layered silk.

It's called a Xiphos. The Gladius was used by the Romans, who wiped out the Spartans. Gladius just means "sword" in Latin, it's the root-word from which "gladiator" is derived. "Gladius" also is used in Latin as slang for penis, the word "vagina" meaning "sheath". www.dartmouth.edu/~humananatom…

Word.  Well you know how video games are, they got to have all kinds of different skins for all their characters. You can check out the concepts, by Sven Bybee, I was provided on my ArtStation if you're interested.

loved the card art for this skin on Smite when they showed it on the patch notes last week looks amazing but wasnt feeling the actual skin itself. the card art was better than the skin.
