Description

The portrait here is based on a photograph of the British actor Rupert Everett. I thought he had an imposing head and so I decided to portray him as a Praetorian Guard Prefect/Commander from Ancient Rome.

Initially I was thinking of making the armour very ornate but quickly changed my mind, believing that a solid, simple cuirass would compliment the black and the picture overall.
