The Battle Of Thermopylae by Aranthulas The Battle Of Thermopylae by Aranthulas
After a lot of time, i finally finished. Circa 480 B.C.E Leonidas and 300 greeks hold the pass against the might of the over 200,000 strong Persian army led by Xerxes King of Kings. My most favorite battle in the ancient world. Though it was a Persian victory, the Spartans and their allies killed over 20,000 Persians.

Love this! The hue or the warm red colors really make this piece very intense and very masculine. Captures the essence of the adrenaline that every man had when they fought.

Wow, these red and orange colors really gives a battle scent. A few of the helmets look a bit flat and there's not enough blood (For me). Awesome anatomy and shading. The coloring is amazing.
