    Hello my friends, here is another one of my last works, a Roman Aquilifer in service at the east borders of the empire.
    Regards.

    Wow, you're on a roll Christos!

    Another excellent figure, and it does look Eastern Empire, with the barren groundwork.

    Cheers,

    Thanks a lot for the comments,
    Eduardo the skin is fine, the problem (which I already correcting) is the lions hair they must be more dark and a bit yellowish.
    Thanks again,
    Christos

    Very fine painting.

    I like the natural/un-dyed color look of the tunic. Which is probably a more authentic correct look instead of the red tunics.

    Thanks again for the comments guys,
    Steve, I have the same opinion about the authenticity of the color clothing that's why I made this choise of color.

    Christos, what was the pallet that you used for the tunic?

    Unfortunately David my camera's lens can't shoot closer and this is a big problem, try a couple of clicks on the photo to make it much wider.

    Well Steve I used acrylics to paint the tunic (Valleho), green ochre, buff and burnt umber (but I am not 100% sure).

    I can't imagine what it must be like to wear that lionskin rug on your head in the deserts of Syria (or wherever). :eek: What's Latin for "heatstroke", I wonder. ;)

    The tunic is a good colour for natural linen. There's lots of evidence for linen clothing in the east.
