Gilgamesh by artozi Gilgamesh by artozi
A Gilgamesh portait whose power is controlling animals mind. And an axe of course (axe effect?). I had great time with this assignment:)

Btw, thank you for all comments. They are witty, smart, sometimes provocative, sometimes point out story inconsequences, but they all add up to what art is and how important people input becomes. Thanks for big motivation!

Is it possible to get a detailed description on how this amazing piece of work was made, by the way? I'm mostly asking this out of curiosity.

As for my actual comments, well, what can I say? It's great. We can CLEARLY see the dominance of the character (I had NO idea he had an axe, that's really interesting), the shading on his armor are just gorgeous, and so's the lion under his foot. Wow. I want this XD

Awesome people always forget Gilgamesh had an axe and a sword.  I always thought he had red or blonde hair/eyes since Shamash the sun god gave him beauty.

The beard from the older representations meets the golden armor of a very specific newer representation I can think of. The resulting effect is suitably awesome. Nicely done.

But... didn't he kill a bull, not a lion? Still looks pretty intimidating. The armor, stance, and environment give off a feeling of power and confidence. Well done.

To critique more than gush... I kinda wish his hand holding the axe was a bit more 'activated'. It seems a little too casual for this guy.

But solid, solid, solid, and gorgeous.
