ah a hoplite without a phalanx(?)
ah a hoplite rich enough to have a slave(?)
Not a spartan
Not an athenian
Not a theban
Maybe Pylos(maybe thebes)
apart from that great image

I really love this; just the whole concept of the warrior standing on the cliff, overlooking the city.

gorgeous! would be cool if the soldier himself would carry all of his gear like a true spartan! but this tells a story of a rich spartan that can afford a helper :) nicely done mate.

It was impossible to put on the panoply of Greek armor by yourself (much like medieval armor), so you'd need a squire.  Herodotus seems to mention that each Spartiate at the Battle of Thermopylae had seven Helots serving him.

Amazing. I'll never be able to paint stuff like this. So far I've been fairly optimistic about everything but everyone else just seems to be doing things so much more better and... they also do things I would've never even thought of doing.fgcvhn

Love this! Wonderful speed paint. :) I don't really paint myself, so highly epic that you can paint this in only 4 hours. :D I love the ancient world, Ancient Greece included, and this made me happy. :) It makes me think of a Spartan warrior returning from or maybe setting off to battle with his Helot slave in tow. Wonderful!

When you do speed paintings like this, what do you take as references for the colors?

That's a great question. I have often wandered too people who are good at speed painting how they hit the right colors in a short time because finding the right color balance is a pain for me and can take a really long time.

it would be interesting to put a little description about the characters, about the landscape .. like what are their names, the city ahead .. i think that would be more interesting :)
