What if all gladiators existed in ancient Rome? Suddenly Nitro doesn't look so hot ;-)

Very well drawn and impressive way to simplify the large audience and setting.

Aww, man. Heather grey. I STILL love it, though! Enough to conquer my fear of heather.

I love it, the only thing I'd change is what the gladiator is wearing, looks too much like a diaper for my tastes!

The fallen gladiator appears to have quite the bulge.

I'm afraid that the stadium line drawing in the background won't work well on heather grey. It's perfect and subtle on silver, but with heather's mottling it becomes extremely difficult to see in the comp. That's my only gripe though - everything else is perfect.

*insert off-color joke about Romans and domination here*

Ahem.

Anyway, great shirt. It took me forever to figure it out though. My pop culture is a bit rusty.

And the one on the ground looks like he's wearing a woman's shirt to me.

You Woot(!) voters are tough critics :-)

I based my drawings on the original 80/90s gladiators, you you can blame them for any perceived fashion faux-pas. As for the diaper, that also turned up in pictures I researched online. They were probably like primitive boxers, gladiators need enough room to breathe :-)

In any case, thanks for the support everyone!
