Alexander the Great by Panaiotis Alexander the Great by Panaiotis
Oggi, 1 ottobre 331 a.C. Alessandro Magno condusse in prima fila l'esercito di cavalieri spezzando le linee avversarie, costringendo Dario III alla ritirata.
La schiacciante vittoria della Battaglia di Gaugamela è probabilmente mostrata nel famoso mosaico di Alessandro di Pompei

I am curious is there a way we can get a copy of Alex and his father without the copyright or can I buy them so I hang them up on my wall ?? I feel the copyright thing for me sorta takes away from the beautiful picture

I said it before. How come they back in these 300 bc or for instant any old painting was not able to paint a face properly ? All these paintins from thousands of years ago was weird, were they not skilled or was it the tools or just that they did not master the painting technique ?   This is amazing btw  i love it !

Hey Mike, 
every period have something different but beautiful in the painting technique. Today is more simple with the digital photography and computer graphics, and also with the knowledge of perspective and others physical stuff. 
The ancient open the right way for us :)
Thank you for the comment and for having appreciated ;)

Yes, but with the copyright "Il taccuino di PaN" and the link at the facebook page (www.facebook.com/Il-taccuino-d…) or here on DeviantArt ;)
Thank you

 Magnificent work Master Panaiotis; this is very definitely Alexander as I imagine him, albeit probably a little less blood-spattered and marginally less … INTENSE (but then my mental image of Alexander does rather live on the fine line between Genius and Madness).

 I must say that the challenge of depicting Alexander's heterochromia fascinates me for by my understanding there are a number of different manifestations of the condition (broadly speaking either one is a different colour from the other or one pupil is larger than it's counterpart); I admit that I tend to imagine that while he had blue eyes, one of his pupils was larger than the other (admittedly because in this interpretation, his condition might be either genetic - or due to one too many blows to the head).

Thank you so much
I'm very glad you liked these illustrations :)
In these royal portraits (Philip II, Olympias, Alexander) I have tried to redraw It,
 just because I do not think there was a reconstruction that made them fame, and especially pertinent with portraits and historical iconography. Alexander often is portrayed without considering its heterochromia!

 May I please ask if you intend to draw portraits for any other characters from History? (I must say that I would love to see even more of your work in this field than your gallery presently contains!).Nod

Sure! I think it will draw other characters, I'm a lover of history and cultural heritage.
As you saw in "Archaeology" gallery there are other characters, especially the Homeric heroes. 
I don't know, but if you want a particular character we can find an agreement for a new commission ;)

Incredible artwork! Amazing.

And you're the first artist who has painted Alexander's heterochromia as described by Arrian! That makes me appreciate this artwork even more!

Thanks for sharing it with us.

Ha davvero un grande impatto, anche emotivo, e così reale che avvicina il mito all'uomo attuale.

Senza parole... è incredibile ciò che si può fare quando uno sa farlo, sembra reale, no, anzi è meglio,  la luce è bassa,vero? il cielo è tempestoso,  il sole che nasce o che muore è sotto lo strato di nubi, e passa, il mantello sembra che si possa toccare.

Speechless ... it's amazing what is possible to do when one knows how to do it,  He  looks real, no, in fact it is better, the light is low, right? the sky is stormy,  the light of sunrise or sunset is  below the clouds layer and passes,   it look as if you can touch the mantle.

E' una nuova tecnica che sto sperimentando, si tratta di combinare più fotografie e gli strumenti del fotoritocco per rendere più realistiche le ricostruzioni storiche. 
In realtà è meno di quello che pensi, e consente di risparmiare tempo
