Alexander the Great of Macedon

Alexander the Great of Macedon

Alexander III, the brilliant Macedonian prince and general known for conquering the mighty Persian Empire, stands in the hilly countryside of his native homeland. For some reason, a lot of modern portrayals of Alexander depict him as a blond-haired and blue-eyed, practically Nordic-looking guy. I used to do that too in some of my older art, but since then I’ve grown sick of that look and so colored Alexander as more Mediterranean (i.e. dark hair and tan skin) this time. That seems more likely for most of the ancient Macedonians anyway.
