Wow! Amazing work! Love it!

I was wandering if you could let me us this image for an Android game called "Kingdoms of Myth", it's turn based strategy game based on a fantasy World. You can find a little bit more info in this rough website made by my colleges [link] (Sorry for the bad English). Of course you will have full credits of your work and link to your webpage if you want :)

Lot of thanks for your time ;)

And again like in Anne Bonny - it's all so illogical! What the hell Romans would do in the thick forest?! Of course beside dying in whole Legions...
The simply reason why the Roman Republic or Roman Empire never invade past Ren or Danube was thick forests, woods and so on [exeption is nowdays Hungary and Romania with their plains]. The power of Legion come from it's thick formation and a bit higher morale than the barbarian tribes, so once again - what Romans are doing here, between trees? They look nice? Especially that one with spear in his chest [who the hell would use spears in forest?!]

Love this art. But why doesn't the Gallic dude bleed when the Roman's gladius stab into his chest? More blood!!

Unless a direct hit is made to a primary artery near the surface (carotid, femoral, brachial, etc.), blood does not immediately come from a wound. Even a direct puncture wound to the heart wouldn't erupt blood the way it does in the movies. Every time I have treated gunshot and penetration wounds to the chest, the blood oozed (granted, with varying degrees of rapidity depending on how large the hole and how many arterial and venal structures were compromised), it didn't spurt. Even with a wide blade such as a Gladius Pompeianus (which is what that appears to be, though during the Gallic Wars they would have used either Hispaniensis or Mainz, that may be a Brythonic warrior, not a Gaul; the artist would have to clarify that one), blood does not emerge from the wound until the blade is withdrawn as the blade itself helps to seal the wound and prevent hemorrhaging. That is one of the reasons we tend to leave penetrating objects in the wound (in addition to being able to determine the wound track via X-ray) when administering treatment. When it comes to weapons, wounds, and realism, Hollyweird is a bad influence on the public consciousness :D

The background is brilliant, and the detail on the imperial armor is most impressive.
