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.
