Ares - God of War by johnsonting Ares - God of War by johnsonting
Another assignment, digital illustration class "Hero".

Really enjoyed the whole process of making this piece. The requirement of the assignment is to choose a character from mythologies or legends, and produce an illustration to present the characteristic using all the techniques we've learned so far.

My favourite technique is texturing, so that explains the heavy textures :S Still not quite good and i really wish i could improve more, im falling behind..

Inspired by marko djurdjevic and my lecturers. Awesome people.

Lost count on the time taken, but it took quite long.

Wonderful rendition of Ares, love the sense of strength and divine power, especially with the frenzied expression and the spear, simply vicious. Well done, keep it up.

Nice art! I would like to ask for permission if it's okay to have your art be part of my list on my site? I am looking forward to feature some great gods and goddesses on my site. You can check out my site here, at the bottom. Of course I'll put a credit that this is your own art. :)
Hope you'll agree! \(^_^)/

Great work :D
Love the idea, coming out with the phalanx in hand attacking :) a very fearsome expression as well and giving that 'he's coming at you' feeling hehe :)

By the way, might I ask why the Number iv on his bracer. mostly as it is a roman number rather than a greek. Just curious :)

The god of war will never be as good has his half sister Athena (Minerva); wile he carelessly uses his brute strength and malice against all of his enemies, his sister defeats him many times throughout Greek mythology using a bit more subtle approach; by using her skills, wisdom, wits, and her own physical abilities she is easily able to defeat him. Now if we were to pit Ares bare physical brute strength against Athena's, by far Ares would win. Then again Ares is your driving force in battle. This is an beautiful yet awesome picture, the lighting effects and action pose are really takes me away, great job. :thumbsup:
