Boudica, the bringer of victory by nathaliagomes Boudica, the bringer of victory by nathaliagomes
Art is study and improvement, so I decided that this piece deserved a refashioned. :D

-

I've been reading some books about this warrior queen (of the author Manda Scott and also of Marion Zimmer Bradley), and other references I found out about it. Since I love History and especially the Roman Empire, I've decided to create this illustration, romanticizing Boudica as the mighty queen of the Iceni who ALMOST defeated the occupation of the roman legion in Britain.

Powerful Women Series:

Valeria, the ruthless horsewoman by nathaliagomes The Fire Caster by nathaliagomes The little thief by nathaliagomes The Huntress by nathaliagomes The Bringer of Justice by nathaliagomes Boudica, the bringer of victory by nathaliagomes

Dear valued artist,
I have allowed myself to use this artwork of yours for one of my recently done story which I published on my website. Please see it here: night-sto.weebly.com/queen-of-…

I wrote a reference back to your work as well as it will show in every post of this character and also is mentioned in right sidebar.

Please send me a note if you don't want your work to be shown there and I will make sure to remove it, however I deeply hope you will allow it to stay as this brilliant work really fits into that story.

Boudica is such a great inspiration! You've done a wonderful job here, she looks so strong and fierce! I especially love the atmosphere of the smoke and mist in the background it adds a sense of awe.

The Romans would have sent more and a lot of tribes were not with her. What Romans did was to open trade goods to the average person and Boudicca would have closed that to them. She was lucky but not a great general by any means. An inspirational figure for Britons and the Victorians later on.

Sorry but I am PRO-SPQR person.

Yes, more or less like Zenobia.

But I have to admit that the Rome Impire it's for me exiting, with all its mistakes and good things. I love all about Clasic Rome, their customs, living, infrastucture, philosophy...and their strategy (not always so honorable as they want).

A história dela é muito boa mesmo! O History Channel fez um documentário muito legal sobre sua vida.

Já que vc gosta de história, vai aí uma indicação: Como os Irlandeses Salvaram a Civilização - Thomas Cahill.
É de uma coleção de livros de História chamada "A História Não Contada". Trata-se da história de St. Patrick. Desde sua ida forçada para à Irlanda quando Roma já desmoronava à beira da Idade Média, até à total transformação da Irlanda pagã em Irlanda Católica. Bem interessante!

By the way, your digital artwork is superb! Very well done! Two thumbs up!
