Steve: In Progress Works

Steve has started a couple of large, time-consuming pieces recently. The following are both in the beginning stages, currently only outlines.

The first is massive, stretching from hip to armpit, and the client actually requested that Steve base it on one of his own tattoos. As an aside: hammerhead sharks are awesome.

Then there is this fierce looking centurion. In case you don’t know, wikipedia will tell you, “A centurion was a professional officer of the Roman army after the Marian reforms of 107 BC. […] Centurions often suffered heavy casualties in battle, generally fighting alongside the legionaries they commanded. They usually led from the front, occupying a position at the front right of the century formation. They led and inspired their men by example. They also sought to display the skill and courage that may have brought them to their rank in the first place. It is for these reasons that they often suffered a disproportionate number of casualties.”
