Atia Julii by Stanbos Atia Julii by Stanbos
Portrait of Polly Walker, A3, approximately 35h, graphite pencils (2H to 8B)

An excellent character from an excellent series ! "Rome", if you know it =) There were only two seasons and it's over, but this series is really nice...

In "Rome", Atia Julii is the mother of Octavian/Augustus. Polly Walker plays Atia very well, a woman who loves power :devilish:

The WIP of the portrait is available here : [link]

Yes! It's an excellent portrait of one of my favourite female characters to ever grace the screen. Loved Rome!

Any chance of you doing Titus and Lucious as well?
