Here, We Lie by Halcylon Here, We Lie by Halcylon
Ὦ ξεῖν', ἀγγέλλειν Λακεδαιμονίοις ὅτι τῇδε
κείμεθα, τοῖς κείνων ῥήμασι πειθόμενοι.

___________________________________________

This was an emotional piece. I know it seems silly, but after getting further into it, I started to remember the story of brave Leonidas and the glorious 300.

I knew I had to do this after watching 300 again for the umpteenth time, and just wanted to make it for the Halo fan in me :)

This took a lot more time - due to the fact that I had to find images that I could work with and all.

Actually Photoshopping time was about 2 1/2 hours.

I think it actually says 'tell the stranger passing by, that here, by spartan law, we lie'
