Septimius Severus Color Impression
A quick colorized marble statue. Hair might be too brown for reality, I believe in older age it was peppered with grey like the famous family painting (the one with Geta scrubbed out), but he looked younger here so artistic license was used. Also, he should really be darker skinned but working on the white surface of the original pic made what I was doing seem dark ennough, in retrospect he should probably be a little more dark toned.

Wonderful work, Scott! (small typo: it's Severus, not Serverus)

Your artwork really bring some of these images to life. I hope you keep doing them. Great job!

Fantastic! You have lots of Talent Scott. Any chance you could do a bust of Vespasian?

Pscipio, typo duly noted, i tend to type "Serv..." instead of the proper "Sev...", I don't know why I do that

Dave A, I would do Vespasian if I had a great portrait of him at high enough resolution. I hate to commit to things, heck i already owe a favor to another fellow here (Gunner, I still need to get you your file, ), but Vespasian would be fun, he's a unique looking old coot.

Yes, interesting transformation, but incredible - too soft-hearted appearance for this great & severe imperor!
