Veni, Vidi, Vici! by Evil-DeC0Y Veni, Vidi, Vici! by Evil-DeC0Y

There were two things that really inspired this picture, recently I've been playing a new game(well, new to me) called SMITE, it's a MOBA where you play as the ancient mythological gods(Thor, Hercules, Anubis etc.) and there is a game mode based on the gladiator battles in the Colosseum. Also I saw an amazing painting that was painted from the perspective of a losing gladiator, but no matter how hard I've searched for it I cannot find it, which sucks because I really liked it :/.

"Y'know," started the pegasus, deftly dodging all of the Diamond Dog's swings. "I've got a motto here in the arena. 3 words buddy. Veni," she charged into an opening and landed a powerful blow to his solar plexus, winding him, "Vidi, " she slammed her hoof into the side of his head, knocking his helmet off, "Vici." and landed an uppercut on his jaw, sending him into the sand, unconcious. "It means, I came, I saw, I conquered. 3 words, three blows. No one beats the Dash." she said landing in the sand smugly.

this piece, i can almost hear you working on it 

"dot, another dot, another dot, another dot, another dot, another dot, another dot, another dot, another dot, another dot, another dot, another dot, another dot ....."

looks realyl cool tho.

to be more specific:
rainbows wings could have used more work, they look very flat to me, with the eatehrs only painted onto them. 
sharper details as can be seen on the clothes of the diamond dog or Dashes bandages could have really helped out.
the wings also seem to not add up with the general lighting from above .


the arena on the other hand came out very well :) 

Keep it going, i want to see more like this :D

Thankfully I was able to manipulate a brush to help move the crowd making process along so it wasn't quite so tedious, but it still took quite a while.

Yeah, I see what you mean. I just wish I wasn't at a convention with it as my newest print when I realized this :/.


Thanks :D

WTF? They have Heracles (Hercules is actually the roman spelling)?! He was a mortal demigod...

I'd sooner see some japanese gods in that game than a demigod like Heracles...

They have more than just gods in the game, they also have monsters like Scylla, and Fenrir.

They have seven pantheons, Greek, Roman, Egyptian, Chinese, Norse, Hindu, and Mayan, a lot of players think that Shinto will be the next pantheon that is added.

Fenrir is a god, he's the son of two jotunn including Loki, is supposed to kill Odin (but is supposed to get killed by Thor's half-brother Víðarr afterwords), and has a pair of kids who eat the sun and the moon. Honestly I don't know why he's a wolf and why Jörmungandr is a serpent, but they're both direct decendants of jotunn. The only one of Loki's kids that makes any sense is Sleipnir, who is sort of a Demigod(Svaðilfari was just a regular stallion).

Scylla was the daughter of a pair sea gods too.

Just because they're monsters doesn't mean they aren't gods.

Now Arachne on the other hand....
