This picture is very unique and awe-inspiring. I see the picture where a Roman legion standing their ground against a barbarian horde is actually a best realistic picture I see. The armor looks very detailed and the legionaries along with the centurion are do their best to form up against the barbarian horde.

The scene is like before the battle begins or it's in the middle of the battle. The forest looks little frizzle and the distance of the barbarian horde is sort of fuzzed. The Roman legion marching up against the horde is very good despite of frizzle background.
What do you think?

This is some of the nicest work I have seen on deviant art. As a history buff i can tell you that the details of the legionaries and the centurion are very well drawn. You even got the focale sweatcloth on their necks right. As for the barbarians, the shield wall was very much the formation the germans would have used. This whole painting makes me think of the battle of the Teutoburg forest. The Romans look as if they were about to break after losing mny men but it is the commands of the centurion that encourages them to fight to the last man against an overwhelming enemy force. Unens agua bolson baina.

Three weeks from now, I will be harvesting my crops. Imagine where you will be, and it will be so. Hold the line! Stay with me! If you find yourself alone, riding in the green fields with the sun on your face, do not be troubled. For you are in Elysium, and you're already dead!

This is a pretty well-drawn picture! However... the way the Romans advance is rubbish. This way the Romans will drop like flies and look just stupid and desperate. "We are the only dozen Romans left, so die with honour!"

Well I wrote a critique but this is fantastic! 

I have seen all of those movies--I liked The Eagle better than Centurion. I just wasn't expecting Centurion to have the tinge of fantasy that it seems to have. It seemed a bit like 300 in that respect, as well as the violence--I'm no stranger to violent movies so that's not my problem with it, but it just didn't seem to fit. Maybe it's just me. The Eagle was interesting though. And of course Gladiator. I want to watch that now! Maybe tonight.

Hey there. I really thank you for the critique. You are right. I have tried to break off from traditional images. It is actually 2nd wave of the barbarians, so the legionairres are trying to form up.

It's depends on which form of Latin for that one.
It's either Ave Cessar (prenuntiation) or Ave Kaisar (prenuntiation) but in all

Ave Caesar!
