My vision of the famous conqueror Alexander III of Macedon, better known as Alexander the Great. When drawing this, I was working with the (non-mainstream) argument that Alexander and his Macedonians weren't really ethnic Greeks as popularly believed but rather a separate group of European "barbarians". Hence why I gave him Celtic-inspired war paint and bear-skin cape. Whether or not it's historically accurate, I think this barbarian interpretation of Alexander looks cooler than the standard all-Hellenic portrayal.
