Spartan helmet by hobito Spartan helmet by hobito
I am VERY pleased with how this turned out. the design came from three places; one was Frank Miller's graphic novel "300", another was from a computer game called Civlization IV, and the third from my head. i combined different aspects of each and i think it came out amazing. about 1 hour to complete. enjoy!

Wow! This picture is very accurate and it is very detailed! Well done!

I'm currently researching medieval helmets as part of my coursework. May I have your permission to use this as a resource?

that shit is tight!!! I'm actually wanting to get a spartan hoplite tattoo and i would be very grateful if you would be able to help me out with a sketch or drawing of one. I'm wanting a helmet, shield and a weapon (sword or spear). it has quite a significant meaning to me and my personal life and struggles. i hope u will be able to help me out. but none the less kickass drawing

Yea i like the helmet a lot, it has the aggressive look that I'm wanting and as soon as i saw it it stuck. I'm kinda wanting my tattoo to be a little aggressive, if you know what i mean, because of the nature of Spartans and its certain symbolic meaning to me. I'm guessing you've seen the movie 300. I love the swords they have. I believe their called slashing swords(maybe wrong). But they have very aggressive lines and curves which is something I'm looking for. I'm very open to your creative artistic touch as well, so if you have anything in mind you can let me know. The shield symbolizes protection from evil and my past wrong doings. I'm wanting there to be something significant to that on the shield but i don't know if I'm over complicating it or not. Any help would be much appreciated. By the way there is no real timeline that i must keep to. I still need to save up some money and figure out where I'm wanting to put this design on my body. thank you again and keep in touch.

ya i was thinking of basing the sword off of the one in 300. in fact, some aspects of that helmet are from the ones in 300. ill see what i can do.
