Good to see someone that knows their history. Do you by any chance play Age Of Mythology?

Great picture, very nicely drawn.
I like the fact that it is more accurate than 300, possibly from a slightly later time period.
I think the spear heads is are little large though.

Awesome. This has to be the first hoplite on DeviantArt I've seen that's wearing lamellar (an early form of Kevlar consisting of canvas, leather, and thin sheets of brass the majority of hoplites wore). Good job.

Weeellllll Considering I have no skill with a pencil (or pen for that matter) when it comes to making drawings, I'm not a good one to give you a critique. Soooo... with that in mind, I'll now sit here and admire your work in silence.

Not likely considering the Romans used very different tactics than the classical Greek phalanx. Indeed, Rome was influenced by Greece, but in the end, Rome took the path of world conquest rather than squabbling with its neighbors as did the ancient Greeks.

Wooooaaaah. This PWNs big time! Yer talented, big time!. As if we didn't know that before.

The anatomy cdoes not cease to amaze while the shading....my vocabulary doesn't have any words good enough to even cover up the whole thing ^^; And if you squint, you can just make out his facial features.

You should do more original art! It's geeeeewwwwwd ^w^
