Gladiatores (1984)

A drawing I made at the Stedelijk Gymnasium Nijmegen in art class. Triggered by roman and greek literature I was reading back then, I became fascinated by gladiator fights. This one also served as a study after rendering human bodies realistically. I remember it to be quite a struggle.
