AngelusMortis
~287 - 212 BC

One of three greatest mathematicians in history. The reference picture I used for this got cut off at the top, so I couldn't see the rest of his hat. For those less familiar with the Greeks, legend has it that Archimedes was the guy who ran streaking naked out of a bathhouse and through the streets shouting "Eureka!" at the top of his lungs.

Here's the original sketch.

BLMGood job overall. His nostril seem maybe a bit too big and his lower lip stands out too much. Other than that, I like the way that he is reflecting the green coloring that is around.
