Erastothenes finished...I used mainly the side view references I had for him, but I turned him face forward for the portrait. Sometimes I look at it and he reminds me of Lee Greenwood and other times I see bits of Phil Collins! It's gotta be the hair.
My favorite parts of this one are his beard and the clothing.

This artwork is for the book, What Really Happened During Ancient Times, to be published by Bramley Books, a division of Knowledge Quest, Inc.

Hi Darla,

Yes, I can see a bit of Phil Collins in him, but he really reminds me of John Willsea, not a famous man, only our editor for this book! I think he will be pleased to see his likeness in the book since he has worked so hard on it himself!
