In this painting I wanted to do my version of one of the greatest warriors in human history the "Spartan soldier". Spartan warriors were taught "There is no retreat or surrender. Only victory or a glorious death". They inspire us to never give up , fight to the end.

"Ogun" The Yoruba God of Iron and War.
On August 14 1791 a slave rebellion began on the Island of Saint Domingue, present day Haiti. The slaves held a ceremony and prayed and asked "Ogun" to fight by there side and give them the strength to overcome those who would oppress them. The slave's prayers were heard by the powerful Ogun. As the slaves rushed to fight for their freedoms, the mighty Ogun infused his spirit within all of them. Across the tropical lands he charged into battle with his saber-tooth white lion and the Haitian revolution had begun.
The slave revolt led to freedom for the oppressed peoples of Saint Domingue,and the birth of Haiti as the first independent Black Republic of the modern world.
Highland Elf is an original character I've wanted to design for a long time.
I really wanted to stray away from the typical "Elf" we are used to seeing in fantasy art. This is a scout/hunter who lives in the misty Highlands. He is rarely seen , and pray he does not see you first.
