Achilles and Penthesilia

Sci fi/Fantasy image by

Heather Carroll

This is a quick drawing I did of Achilles killing the Amazon queen, Penthesilia. The reason their positions may look awkward is they are in the same stance from an acient Greek vase I basically took the clothing and position and made it slightly more realistic. As the story goes; in the Trojan war the Amazons sided with Troy and Achilles ended up killing Penthesilia but as he was doing so the two's eyes met and they fell in love, but it was too late and Penthesilia died right there.
