Roman Legionary by Hrivalasse Roman Legionary by Hrivalasse
Allright, this poor guy just had to be finished after 7 1/2 months. I gave up on him several times. I have too many issues with this doll to name all and this poor man deserves better, but otherwise he probably would have died in my doll folder if I had put him off again.
I tried to make everything he's wearing and carrying as accurate as possible to the early 1st century AD. I somewhat gave up accuracy on his shoes. I called their main layer in photoshop 'FUCK THIS SHIT!!', if that's any indication of my sufferings. His gladius (sword) looks too small. I hope, for his sake, that nothing else about him is too small. I don't even want to know XD

Awesome work! Your suffering was not in vain, brother!

BTW, also, I like the decision to go with the Lorica Hamata, as I think the Segmentata is overused!

I suggest you keep working. No matter how long it takes, I want total perfection! Until you complete this, I will neither favourite this piece nor watch you.

I don't tend to aim for perfection in my hobbies (i.e. drawing digital dolls). If this was an illustration to be shown in an academic publication I certainly would, but it's not.
Seeing how much love, work and time seem to be put into your own pieces, one must wonder how you even find the time to comment on deviations which don't please you.

That's just awesome! All the detail (and the hairy legs! :D), it's just... Wow! If I ever tried something like that I'd use far more than 7 and a half month.

THIS. IS. AWESOME. All your suffering was not for naught!

As a lover of 1) male, 2) historic, 3) detail-oriented dolls, I am totally crushing on this. Textures, man. TEXTURES. Yowsa. Also: this may be the first male doll I've seen with hairy legs, and it surprises me to say this, but . . . . it looks so much better that way!
