Quote:Thank you very much Alòexand, when I finished the work I felt less hate toward Sulla! :lol:

Now a work in progress but I love it wery much, it is an omage to MMFA, infact actually this is the Ultimus Romanorum Himself, the Magister Militum Flavius Aetius, with his Hunnic bucellarii:

Carlo, I like the depth of shade of your pencil work!
Evan his shield reminds me style of Notitia Dignitatum designs.Is it out of your imagination or something borrowed from real existing bosporan shield devices?
Paul not bad at all ! I think they have enough charm to be used in a book.I especially like landscapes, loaded mule and the last picture with resting soldiers.
Its from my imagination.
1)Crusaders above the body of Justinian,newer colored version-so it should be clear now that the deceased is indeed an Eastern Emperor.
2)Sketch of the late Roman soldier with ridge helmet adorned with similar "dragon heads" design as those often depicted on late Roman shields.I had to paint this immediately after Jens Horstkotte show me such intercisa helmet find I've never seen before.

3)And the third and most important thing to me:my first payed work- book cover for Arthurian story by Francis Hagan.It was a great privilege to work with Francis and I also learned a lot of new things while I was doing on it.

You can see some details here: http://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B00FIN06SU/re...GG.0G922TA
Awesome stuff Pavel!

However, I should note the perspective on the Crest of your intercisa-IV is off. Don't take it the wrong way, just trying to help.
Thats ok Evan, I'm open to constructive criticism and this is after all just a small sketch Smile .
Thanks, Pavel - and the privilege is mine also. Your work was perfect for The Arthuriad and captures the mood of the decline of Roman Britain superbly. Thanks again for agreeing to take the project on. I look forward to working with you again in the near future.

For those interested (shameless plug!), the novel can be found on Amazon here:

Your books seem great. I've never actually read one (although I read your original AAR for The Nowhere Legion)
You should try them! Let me know what you think!
Well, judge from the reactions on DA at least one book is sold by now Confusedmile: !
Here is a recent illustration of mine.

It was used in the latest Roman Conquests book by Pen and Sword on Egypt and Judaea by John D Grainger.

Hardcover: 256 pages
Publisher: Pen & Sword Military (30 Jun 2013)
ISBN-10: 1848848234
ISBN-13: 978-1848848238

The scene illustrates Marc Antony at the battle of Actium when he learns that Cleopatra is leaving him up the creek without a paddle!

Graham.
:-o Mr.Sumner you are a Godlike person to me and certainly not just to me...same as this picture-heavenly creation!

And I also like that detail with letters in greek alphabet bearing the name of Cleopatra as it is known from more sources from around this period names of chief commanders were often written or displayed on the shields.
Nice one Graham!

@SBH
I wish I had the money to buy them Tongue
MMFA - they are only a few dollars (no pressure!). Wink
