Last charge of the Amazons

Description

Here's a picture i did years ago for a contest on CGtalk.com.

Its based on the story of Penthesilea, queen of the Amazons, who fought in defense of Troy in the Trojan War, and was slain in battle by Achilles. The scene is supposed to be when she arrives with her army on the plains of Troy and is charging through the rear ranks of the Achaean army to reinforce the city. Or something like that. It made sense at the time.

This pic took me freaking forever to paint. Looking at it now, it kinda sucks overall. The color is muddy and its way too overworked, but there are things I still like about it like the city in the distance, and the armor on the warriors.

Wow! Amazing work! Love it!


I was wondering if you could let me us this image for an Android game called "Kingdoms of Myth", it's turn based strategy game based on a fantasy World. You can find a little bit more info in this rough website made by my colleges lifeisinfinity.eu5.org/infinit… (Sorry for the bad English). Of course you will have full credits of your work and link to your webpage if you want :)


Lot of thanks for your time ;)


P.D: By the way we just created now a Facebook with more recent pictures: www.facebook.com/kingdomsofmyt…
