AH, HERE IT IS!!  BEEN LOOKING FOR THIS A LOOONG TIME!!  ONE OF MY FAVS!!  BUT, THE COMB ON HIS HELMUT SHOULD BE IN A "NORTH-SOUTH" FASHION, NOT TURNED ON THE SIDE.  AND MORE THICK!  THIS SHOULD BE COLORED!!  ALSO, THE COMBS ON THE CENTURIONS, WERE RED.  SORRY, CAPS!!

Can someone explain to me why the Centurion has a sideways crest helmet while the legionnaire on his right has a forward crested helmetConfused

It's flawless CEPT The Centurion's Comb(helmet plume) should be straight forward & backward!

very good work. except for the use of lorica segmentata and a cingulum for the centurion, it is historically accurate, not to mention exquisite.

well it has been quite a long time since I finished the drawing but as far as I remember it took 3 days with 3-4 hours of drawing each day. So approximately 12 hours we can say :)

:) Wow. Fantastic work and great shading!
If I may ask, what kind of pencils are you using, or is this charcoal?

Well I use ordinary pencils. I just make the sketch with HB, first shading with 2B than make a layer with 4B. Finally I have used 6B in some parts of the drawing.

Yes, that's pretty much what I use, too. I can't live without my HB pencils, :D!

You have some wonderful pencil work in your gallery -- I hope to see more!
