Fire From Heaven  
Okay, so I really have to stop colouring long enough to write. I am thinking while I'm colouring, but I really need to actually get the stuff written, before I forget!

Um, okay, so I'm promoting someone else's artwork (again). Basically, a pair of friends complained about the cover of their copies of Fire From Heaven. Apparently they've got a picture of statue (which is better than mine--I've got a painting of Elagabalus....) and so one decided to make up her own cover. Thus, we get this. She tells us to guess who's who. I want the emo boy with the hair to be Hephaestion. Cause he's hot.

That's about it....

This would make an awesome cover. They all look so... Greek! (DON'T ASK. XD) Anyway, I'd guess the one under Olympias/next to Alexander should be Hephaistion - there should be a reference so we can know for sure!

I think there might be one somewhere. I'll have to search through comments and stuff to see if I can't find it >.<

But I'd totally buy a second copy for this cover. That, and I bought mine used, so it's quickly deteriorating...

Do report your findings. XD

Heh, it may not be a bad idea to get a different one. I mean, why it has the Totally Unrelated Elagabalus on the cover...

Okay, left to right, top to botton: Aristotle (maybe? I haven't actually figured that one out), Olympias, Philip, Alexander, Hephaestion (okay, so he totally looks like the movie...), Cassander (why's he so hot?!)

I'm a little afraid that they might be relating him to Alexander...maybe? Maybe it's just a pretty painting that they thought might fit?

I thought that was Aristotle, actually. Yay! So that's that sorted (well, even Cassander can be hot every now and then?).

But Elagabalus? I wonder what they were smoking. I mean, this guy couldn't have been more different from how Alexander supposedly behaved...

They were both kooky, maybe? Okay, so Elagabalus wasn't so kooky as just an insanely crazy/ahead-of-his-time wierdo, and Alexander was really just a bit of a megalomaniac...

I don't know, it just seems a bit like equating him with Nero or some such emperor. But of course they wouldn't because Nero is the famous one and people might pick up on the differences. (But even then there'd at least be the analogy of things getting burned down! XD)

Well...at least it's not that statue of Commodus comparing himself with Hercules (now that would be weird...)

Okay, you got me there. I always thought Commodus was a bit... well. XD
