Maximus Decimus Meridius by Sheridan-J Maximus Decimus Meridius by Sheridan-J
MY HERO! Forever and always :D

He's the kinda guy you wanna meet in the afterlife, and to just tell you everything will be fine :aww:

A quick one this time to play around with some textures and brushes. I kept it sort of loose and just wanted to let the grunge do its work hehe.

Photoshop CS5
About 7 hours!

"My name is Maximus Decimus Meridius, commander of the Armies of the North, General of the Felix Legions, loyal servant to the true emperor, Marcus Aurelius. Father to a murdered son, husband to a murdered wife. And I will have my vengeance, in this life or the next." Cool Job!

I'm not a big fan of Russell Crowe but in Gladiator I can stand him. I really really love this :love: Doing this in 7 hours makes it more spectacular.

Same here, to be honest. I have only seen him in a couple of Australian films (before Gladiator) and this is definitely his most stand out performance ever :XD:
