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
It was very hard to decide how to do this - in my original image the dacian had his back to the viewer, which is realistic, but makes a pointless illustration (to show what the Dacian looks like). I'll approach this sort of picture differently in future. Of course, the Dacian could just be a rubbish fighter
Although they were not rubbish fighters at all xD . They are one of the few opponents of Rome that made the romans supervise and change their tactics and equipment. Also, a dacian falx is told to be able to eviscerate a man in two halves.
Anyway, awesome drawing you made. Their equipment is pretty historically accurate. I also like that you curved the dacian's weapon outwards.
The weaponry seems pretty accurate from a historical point of view, perhaps except the Dacian's ecossais-themed mantle. Also, for a more dramatic scene, I would have gone for the bad-ass two-handed falx (aka the warrior fought without the protection of the shield) instead of the one-handed falx called a sica.
All in all, great work! I might contact you for an image to use as a cover of my next historical novel
Excellent drawing ! You even add the up-armoured arm used to protect against dacian falx as can be seen on the Adamklissi column. But against the colder weather, shouldn't the legionnaire wears "trousers" ?
Thank you! I wasn't sure about the trousers; there is so much to learn about when doing a historical piece. My first version of the Dacian had a falx and a shield, then I learned the falx was two-handed so I replaced it with a Sica. Perhaps they could be fighting in summer?
