Another one for the repetoire of Greek Olympians. First Zeus, then Poseidon, now a son of Zeus - Ares.

Ares has always struck me as an arrogant, powerful, and fierce fighter (as his station in the pantheon implies), so I wanted to get all of this across in the image. The lighting is inspired a bit by Frazetta, but the details are all me.

I gave him a companion, an armour plated hound that looks like a cross between an armadillo and some sort of jungle cat. I took the DAZ Gargoyle Hound and tweaked one of the texture maps, adding a displacement map to pop the armour a bit more. Quite happy with the result.

Hope you enjoy and please do click to get the full view of the smaller details I've worked in.

This is absolutely perfect.
The Ares as he is in my imagination.
I especially like the arrogant expression
and his hound adds to the general atmosphere.

A great image! Now do one of Mars. (Just joking!)

Funny thing: the ancient Greeks (like the Romans) were mostly blond and brown haired. The darker haired genetics occurred later.
