Greek Mythology - Dionysos Picture

Dionysos or Dionysus (Ancient Greek: Διόνυσος) is the god of the joy, grape harvest, winemaking and wine, of ritual madness and ecstasy. In his capacity as a god of joy the prototype of a theater was invented during the Dionysia in Athens, the theater of Dionysos. (Dionysia (Greek Διονύσια) were a Greece festival in honor of the god Dionysos).

Dionysos is usually depicted with ivy or vines and grapes and in addition, often shown with a panther or tiger skins.

Unlike the Athena image I am using references for the face and noticd that human faces ( or the one from human looking gods) are much more difficult than Wraith faces. Using own photos as references, but also works from Alkamenes (Alcamenes) [link]. And I took a look at the Spartian King Leonidas in the movie 300. But of course I wanted my own version.
