Greeks & Romans
« on: September 10, 2019, 12:20:14 »
Let's get the ball rolling on antiquity customs.

First off, an attempt at Commodus. Sources describe him as blonde; still, I thought it best to go with dark hair so as to take advantage of the mustache/beard combo.



I'm not too satisfied with the hair. An afro perm might be the closest match with Commodus's most famous depiction, though I'm afraid it'd look ridiculous in Playmo-form.

Next is something a bit more original – I hope.

Here's my take on Dionysus. I tried to capture an ephebic, youthful look. Wouldn't mind erasing the print from the skirt as it doesn't really match, but couldn't bring myself to do so yet.



I'm a bit bummed Dionysus wasn't given a plastic form together with the other Olympians, I'm really curious as to how PM would have represented him.
