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.
