Mighty Hercules v2 by RubusTheBarbarian Mighty Hercules v2 by RubusTheBarbarian
Thsi is a remastered version of Mighty Hercules or Heracles. I think its better than the old one in every aspect.

This is one of the illustrations I made for a Greek trading Card Game called "Heroes of Ancient Greece". And of course I worked on my favorite one...Heracles!

Pencils and colours on Photoshop!

Nice to see an image of Hercules with the lionskin! Too often people forget to put it in there! Good job!

Hello!

I'm a high school social studies teacher and a graduate student through Iowa State University. We are in the midst of developing interactive technologies for education with the LAYAR software. Our assignment is to create a PDF that will have layers of multimedia as it is scanned by android and/or apple devices. I'd be happy to give you more information if you desire. I have chosen to create a interactive project that revolves around Myth and Mortality. I would like to include this image in my work, cited of course, that will be published solely for education around the world. I would like to ask for your permission to use this image. I appreciate your response so that I can have a private document for my records (so I don't violate any copyright laws). Please message me and let mek now if there is a private email we can communicate through. Thanks so much for your time and consideration.

This is amazing. The muscles, the veins and tendons in his arms are realistic which I don't think you see alot in... can't think of the name for this style. This Heroes of Ancient Greece, can I get it in the UK? Or at least see what it's about online?

I like how you let the paws hang freely instead of tying them over his chest- I always thought that looked kind of silly. This "Heroes of Ancient Greece" sounds pretty cool! Do you know how I could get 'em here in the US?

Not yet, but the publisher is seriously thinking of translating it to the english language.

Until then,it'll only be available in Greek. :(

But if anything new happens, I'll let you know! ;)

Well that's the deal!

He wore the Nemean Lion's pelt because

1. the pelt was unaturally resistant to human weapons. Practically indestructible to any weapons, except the Lion's own claws.

2. though he was already huge, Heracles looked inhumanly enormous while wearing the pelt. His enemies always trembled in fear when they saw him coming...

3. it was a symbol of Heracles' might, since he was the only hero that ever defeated the Nemean Lion.

Definitely an improvement, though I would say watch his right arm; his forearm looks a tad too long to me. Otherwise, nicely done.
