There is an original painting of mine that everyone can bid for over in the Events section under Park in the Past.

This is meant to be Optio during civil war battle but any color similarities with Confederacy flag were not intentional :-) !

Very nice, as always, Graham. The smoke rising up from fires and demonstrating the prevailing wind reminds me a little of Alan Sorrell's work.

It has come to my attention that scans of all of my Plates from the Byzantine Court Dress publication "By The Emperor's Hand" written by Timothy Dawson have been posted on Facebook by a member of this Forum!

While I certainly appreciate the advertising, it would have been fair to post a small sample, with a link to the publishers or my website. There are people who may buy the publication simply to view the Plates so to post all of them online in reasonable quality will not help my Royalties.

These scans have inevitably been copied elsewhere and can be viewed on at least one other site. It also appears that the text too is available online.

People may not be aware but an author or an illustrator of factual history publications does not earn anything like the author of Harry Potter. If readers of these books wish to see them continue then they should think of that before posting the material online.

This is a form of publishing itself and is also covered by copyright law.

I’ve just come across this thread and there are some fantastic pictures here! I love seeing people’s artistic interpretations of the ancient world.
 
Would anyone mind if I posted some of my own works on here?
 
These are some drawings I did a few years ago of some of the famous figures from Rome’s early history and the Republic. I found them again whilst going through some old files recently.
 
  • The first are the legendary twins Romulus and Remus.
  • The second is (the equally legendary?) Coriolanus, who I drew wearing the Corona Civica he won in the Volscian Wars.
  • Third is Marcus Furius Camillus
  • Fourth is Apppius Claudius the Blind
  • Fifth is Tiberius Gracchus, depicted as a military tribune in Carthage and wearing the Corona Murialis he won for scaling the enemy ramparts.
  • Sixth is Gaius Marius
  • Seventh is Cato the Younger, depicted wearing an old-style toga with nothing underneath, as a statement that he was imitating the early Republican Roman and their values. I must confess that I hate Cato.
There are some figures here missing that I drew but never got round to colouring. When drawing these I attempted to show the progression of fashion and military armour, so I'd love some feedback on how accurate I got them.
