The Emperor Marcus Aurelius Antoninus. Aka, Elegabalus.

Born: Varius Avitus Bassianus.

Brush pen + Color markers for background.

Definitely the most beautiful of Roman emperors. And very, very naughty. I’ve had a history nerd crush on him since the 90s. Even started sketching a novel about him that I may need to finish someday.

This drawing doesn’t do him justice, so I’ll probably do another or one or two or . . .

I Guess I STILL have a bit of a crush on him.

I know, I know. Our age difference would make it weird. I’m only 48 and he’s 1817. But who are you to judge our love?! 😉
