For who knows how many times, I have again read Steven Pressfield's "Gates of Fire" book, and again inspired by it, I decided to draw something or someone...
Polynikes. He is a Spartan Peer, a champion of his generation. Flawless in looks and peerless in valor, he is the nephew of King Leonidas and a member of the King's Three Hundred Spartans in addition to being an Olympic champion. He's the youngest winner of not one, but two Prizes of Valour at the age of 23.
I wanted to stay true to that age and I did a little research, so, everything on him is from that time. Taking in count that he is one of the Noble Knight's and a champion, his equipment is better looking.
