Briantk2003 is right. This does remind me of Eric Shanower's "Age of Bronze." Although Eric is also known for his OZ graphic novels, "AGE of Bronze" is probably his most important work: a retelling, using many literary sources, of the Trojan War. A terrific series, but VERY adult.

Iphigeneia accepted her fate and died for her country. This is completely wrong, read the damn play.

I played Iphigeneia this year, for fuck's sake. I think I know what I'm talking about, shit-for-brains. Aeschylus's "Agamemnon" tells it from Agamemnon's perspective and is flattering to him; I performed Iphigeneia by Euripides which tells the less politically flattering version. Aeschylus was a traditionalist who never would have exalted a woman, and Euripides is the father of modernism, which one do you honestly think is more trustworthy? Fucking moron. I have a degree in theatre, be careful who you fuck with before you get a new asshole ripped for you.

hey moron...the story isn't true...it's fiction...therefor each writer's take on the story is legitimate in it's own context. You seriously think Euripides based his take on historically credible evidence rather than his own imagination? Yeah, your a real bright one aren't you? I don't know how tying up your daughter and then murdering her is a flattering act. If you have a degree in theater you should get your money back because being educated by a cage of trained monkeys doesn't qualify as a trustworthy degree in anything. Go act out the scene for real please and stop spewing idiocy on the net. your blocked btw.

have a nice day

To be honest with you dude I just wouldn't bother with her.
She's got some kind of psycological issue which makes her feel the need to argue and threaten everyone.
She's kind of just a sad, pathetic excuse for a human being.

Didn't Iphigenia except her death with grace, though? I thought she went willingly towards the end, knowing it was fruitless to escape.

I...am not so sure. Possibly. Alfred Lord Tennyson's "A Dream of Fair Women" made it seem she didn't go willingly.

Nice drawing. You must have spent a lot of time drawing all these characters, but the result looks very good. The high number and quality of the details are quite impressive. And you really did an excellent job of showing the terror and the futile struggle of the young girl. It makes the whole scene quite poignant.

(Agamemnon, I think your wife is going to have some sharp words for you about this whole affair. But don't worry, they'll wait until your return.)

Well, it has interesting spin on Trojan War. He depicts Cheron the Centaur as wise man of the mountain, dryad and nyard as priestesses of the forest and ocean. All the characters are portrayed with regalia from suspected time period when Trojan War occurred, the Bronze Age. Hence the title Age of Bronze.

also, this pic makes me think -
It'd be cool if this artist erikson1, with his powerful tenacity for creating strong lighting, did more fantasy works in addition to all the sci-fi

But then again, do what you enjoy, because we only live once
