Ajax, the Great Picture

Él es Ajax, el Grande, un personaje mitológico del qual me enamoré gracias a "Age of Mythology", así que tenia que dibujarlo en mi estilo ^-^ os dejo una pequeña sinopsis de su vida, si os interesa podéis buscar más detalles, personalmente me gusta mucho su historia y sobre todo el carácter que le han dado en el juego, creo que encaja perfectamente con las descripciones.


SINOPSIS:

En la Ilíada de Homero se le describe como un guerrero de gran estatura y fuerza colosal, testarudo y de inmenso escudo que por sí mismo es un antemural de las falanges, segundo en destreza y valentía en la batalla únicamente por detrás de Aquiles. No fue herido en ninguna de las batallas relatadas en La Ilíada y es el único personaje de importancia en la obra que no recibió ayuda por parte de ninguno de los dioses griegos. Al igual que Aquiles fue entrenado por el centauro Quirón. Áyax era sin duda uno de los reyes más importantes en el campo de batalla, aunque no tan sabio como Néstor, Idomeneo o Menesteo, ni tan hábil como Diomedes, Odiseo o Palamedes.

He's Ajax, the Great, a mythologic character that I love thanks to "Age of Mythology", so I have to draw him in my style ^-^ I give you a little resume of his life, if you are interested go and find more information, personally I really love his story and most the personality he has in the game, I think that it fits perfectly with his descriptions.


RESUME:

In Homer's Iliad he is described as of great stature and colossal frame, the tallest and strongest of all the Achaeans, but for his cousin Achilles in skill-at-arms, and Diomedes to whom he lost a sparring competition as well as the 'bulwark of the Achaeans'. He was trained by the centaur Chiron (who had also trained his father, Telamon, and Achilles' father Peleus), at the same time as Achilles. Apart from Achilles, Ajax is the most valuable warrior in Agamemnon's army (along with Diomedes), though he is not as cunning as Nestor, Diomedes, Idomeneus, or Odysseus. He commands his army wielding a huge shield made of seven ox-hides with a layer of bronze. Most notably, Ajax is not wounded in any of the battles described in the Iliad, and he is the only principal character on either side who does not receive personal assistance from any of the gods who take part in the battles.
