Greek Strategos by Erebus-art Greek Strategos by Erebus-art
A Greek Strategos (General).

I painted it on "commission" for a friend who plays my role playing campaign in the "Mythic" Greece.
His character is a Son of the Goddess Athena. He wants an unified Greece, and so he enlists in the "Seven against Thebes" war, defending the city of Thebes from untold numbers of enemies.

I used various references but mostly drawn on my fantasy.
It was a long time I wanted to paint something of the ancient greece.

All painted in Photoshop, with my custom brushes here and there.

If u want to see more mythic paintings: [link]

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 ;)

Hello, it depends if it's a commercial product or not. :)

Nope it is not, that's why we can't afford paying to artist and we ask to great artists like you :), it will be a great honor have your picture on the game :)

If it's for a non-commercial project, and you give credits, then you have my permission for that project only then, unless it becomes commercial and is sold on android market (even if it's free with payxfeatures or with ads, I consider it commercial)
Until you don't make money from it, you can keep and use the image for it, and if I had time, i would have liked to work with you too, just to make a bit more of curricula on mobile games too :D

I work a lot with boardgames publishers, so strategy games are my bread and butter :D

If you and your friends move to commercial projects, let me know and maybe you could need some professional illustration or graphics (look at my boardgames gallery ;) ).

thanks for answering, but our project is a non commercial project, we want to provide it for free on Google Play without ads. So by the moment we can't afford paying. Hope that at least we win some notoriety and for our next project we could afford paying illustrations to great artists like you.

Greetings and have a nice day!

P.D: I have commented on another of your pics, well in fact all your pics are really, really, really awesome. Congrats!

but probably you have not read correctly my answer ^_^
I told, if the project is not commercial, you CAN use this image for free, just give me credits and it's ok, when I talked about the google market, I was just telling that if there is no income coming from it, you can use it for free, it's more clear? :)
Just let me know if you use it, and I will download the game too of course :)

Lot of thanks for all! It is a great honor to have a picture of such a great artist like you!

Greetings and have a nice weekend!
