Battle of Carthage III by RadoJavor Battle of Carthage III by RadoJavor
Early concept for the game total war: rome II. After the long siege the city was conquered by Rome and later razed to the ground.
It was an inspiration for the actual battle map and the atmosphere. Didn't have much time for this so done in quick style.

Great work! Also Creative Assembly (the people who made Total War: Rome II) had some money left over in their marketing budget and got a great channel on YouTube called Extra Credits to teach some history about the Punic Wars (The wars between Rome and Carthage) please check it out. Just search Extra Credits Punic Wars on youtube, it's amazingly interesting. Go check it out if you're interested (It's seriously like Game of Thrones with all the crazy stuff that happens!)

Heh. That statue on the right reminds me of Indy Jones: Fate of Atlantis. Awesome piece, man. As usual!

Aw man. Being on a Hannibal trip at the moment, this piece hurts. In a good way. :)

One little thing: Would you consider changing the statue in the background? None of the Punic gods had horns. There's an excellent reference for Baal Hammon here: www.art-prints-on-demand.com/k… I totally understand if you decide you want to believe, and depict, the demonic tradition of Carthaginian gods spread by the Romans, but as a matter of fact, this dark side is largely a product of Roman construction.

they have many gods, I know about one called moloch and nobody know now how he looks like.

Moloch wasn't a God but a sacrificial rite called "mulk" ("moloch being a wrong transcription). There are depictions of several other gods in the Carthaginian pantheon (Baal Hammon, Tinit, Baal Haddad, Melkart). 

I wasn't going to quarrel though. If this is your interpretation, it's your interpretation.

Even if it is done in quick style this still a fantastic piece of work. i love the amount of detail that is there and better still implied. It manages to say so much.


I also like the way that in bits we can still see some of the sketch lines that you used to built the drawing up. Gives a bit of an insight in to how you work.

I really like the image, even if it was a quick one as you said. Everything reads as it should and the atmosphere is also present. A lovely piece of concept art if you ask me :)
