Carlos Martel by GENZOMAN Carlos Martel by GENZOMAN
Another draw for Myths & Legends TCG. Carlos Martel is one of my favorite historical character. I try to give him a old fashined paint style, like a old portrait... lol

Photoshop CS + paint

Very, very beautiful work :)

Can I write only a little criticism?

the name Charles Martel derives from latin Carolus Martellus. He was a great king and a great fighter, but he never used a war hammer. "Martel"  or "Martellus", in latin don't mean hammer.

It mean "Little Mars"... little GOD mars!

It was a nickname for his battle value.

This is an extremely minor criticism, but I notice that the way his left hand is angled seems unnatural.  It's positioned in a way which would be appropriate if the hammer were leaning towards us from bottom to top, but since the hammer is leaning away it's contrary to the way that hand is positioned.  Beyond that, of course, it's a marvelous picture.  I just thought I'd throw that out there for your consideration.

Very glad to see a french hero drawn, but ... his french name, his real name is Charles Martel, not Carlos.
However, he is very cool like this.
Thanks.

Martel era rubio, notoriamente rubio, y muy alto.
