aint those shields older? kinda from the fall of the empire? isnt the scutum of that age more like a rectangle?.

Anyway, the pic is awesome, I always wanted to do a pic like this myself, but never tried (I dont have the ability to draw it anyway).

the more famous scutum weren't adopted until the Principate. The shields during Caesar's time were in fact still long rectangular ovals. In fact the shields in the late Empire as used by the foederatii or other soldiers were generally completely round, circular shields.

You changed your mind and decided to make Antony cross-gendered as well later?

Its Marcus Antonius and not too fond of female Ceasar after all she doesn't look tough enaugh and she should be middle aged if she would wanted to be Caesar.
A history fanatic
caocaothedeciever Featured By Owner Aug 23, 2009
Oh I know too, me being a history fanatic. But most people are more familiar with Mark Antony as opposed to Marcus Antonius, or Pompey the Great instead of Gnaeus Pompeius Magnus. When trying to create something more approachable to a larger audience, it's important to keep these things in mind. And also it's a bad stereotype that Caesar was "tough." Caesar was a good soldier, but above all he was a charmer, much less a disciplinarian or strict general as hollywood tends to make him out as. Even Suetonius talks about Caesar's "Dandiness" while Plutarch writes about how Caesar had "fair, pale skin and a thin demeanor, prone to illness and attacks of the falling sickness." And besides, who'd find a middle aged woman attractive? I prefer them younger myself, but if you prefer Mrs. Robinson...:O

Still, it's always nice to find someone who actually knows history. Care to share IM addresses so as to chat some more? :D

i have only MSN. named Big Boss.
I prefer youg women but the historical facts forced me to think that middle aged would be realistic and about Gaius Julis Caesar, yes he waas acharmer but what i ment with tough was his strategic and tacticall skills in both war and politics. And acording to one description he carried scars with him proudly as he considired Alexander the Great as his role model who also carried scars of his wounds as they were trophies, most scars what Alexander had could have been leathal.

Impressive! And the equipment of the soldiers are even realistically similar to the late republic / beginning of empire (chainmail, oval shield).
Titus Labienus is known for his victory during gallic war, especially the victory at lutecia (modern Paris), but if i remember he left Caesar for Pompeius during civil war.
Anyway the women conqueror are just marvellous!

WHOA. Oo That is simply amazing, man!
Had you not pointed out you using Photoshop for the soldiers, I would've been a little worried about you having to draw all those soldiers.
Nice work!

Ohhh... after more than two thousand years, we finally know why noone tried to stop him... her... uhm... :D ;)

Very good pic. :thumbsup:
Colour it, please!
caocaothedeciever Featured By Owner Jan 9, 2008
Thank you ^^.

I'm actually planning on keeping this black and white however. I may go back in and shade it, but unless YOU'D like to color it :P'er mind what I said.

But yeah, I'd like to keep it black and white, to give it a more archaic feel.
Glad you liked it though.

The level of details is just amazing! Wasn't boring draw all those soldiers?
Immortalez Featured By Owner Jan 7, 2008
I didn't see the photohop part. Ignore my above comment...
cordefr Featured By Owner Jan 7, 2008
It's impressively detailed. The horseman in front looks very feminine though. Did you do that on purpose? Juliette Cesar crossing the Rubicon?
caocaothedeciever Featured By Owner Jan 7, 2008
Again, this is a cross gendered Caesar XD. I would certainly HOPE she looked feminine, lol.
