    Now I'm confused. Where did this one come from?

    IIRC, that's the guy from God of War.

    That is Kratos, yes.  <3

    Sartan very much resembles him. Exelethril was doing what I do in Discord a lot, and compare the two =)

    I always saw Kratos as more Aegis than Sartan. 
  • PyoriPyori Posts: 510Member ✭✭✭✭ - Eminent
    Aegis looks nothing like Kratos :|

    Aegis = John Boyega?

    @Sartan's head is way too small, imo.

    Wow! That Sartan picture is good enough to be on the side of a van! Could use more tigers though... 10/10

    That's so awesome. It'd be cool to have a page where all the immortals have their favorite picture that describes them, kind of like a yearbook. haha. Kind of like how all the cities are set up to give some kind of visual foundation to imagine some of these awesome situations we keep having.

    The perspective looks fine, it’s from a servile member of his legion. He’s also not human, but a God, he isn’t going to have human anatomy.

    just draw me like one of your french girls instead <3

    Just because he's a divine doesn't necessarily mean he wouldn't have human (or humanoid) anatomy and physique. Part of that being proportionate and realistic details. Take Phaestus' painting for example. Especially since the pantheon in Achaea is largely based off Greek/Roman mythology.

    I actually prefer when a deity is  human in appearance and stature to actually closely resemble the average physique instead of having an 18 pack (that never really gets used anyway because they're a divine).

    I think in the past they've done a good job of reflecting this, akin to how gods and goddesses are often portrayed in similar instances based off of ancient mythology with shows like Xena and Hercules (which I why I posted the pictures of Ares for reference). They're not the average humans, they're often much more beautiful and studly (such as the paintings of Phaestus and Scarlatti and Neraeos), but they're still largely relatable.

    Unless it's something specifically like a Troll god or perhaps even in the case of Lupus, whom one expects to have a sort of half human/half beast like appearance, I think that's a fitting theme.

    I don't see the issue with the proportions of the picture. The viewpoint is from foot level at the highest, the head is not a glance to the side but slightly over the shoulder that does involve a slight puff of the chest and you can see that they have tried to apply some (I don't know the right word so I'll say..) 'lensing' affect from the towers behind him.

    It's like them instagram chicks yo. Angles and 'lensing' making that rack more impressive than it is.

  • XaeXae Posts: 433Member @ - Epic Achaean
    The angle still doesn't play into the fact that his left arm is completely dislocated from his body lol

    I'm with Xae on this. Either his left arm/shoulder is in the totally wrong position or that's some really oddly designed armour.

    Well, that too. Chest muscles don't balloon out as a whole, they each have their own shape instead of just being an.. a balloon with muscles drawn on it :sweat_smile:
