This makes me so happy~ I love that there's art of this game on here <33 Though it does look more like Eric to me, this is a wonderful design for him.

Also may I mention your links are paintings, so they may also have been inaccurate for all we know.

Um. So the game isn't completely realistic, and mind you, it's a concept for a GAME. Almost the whole thing is alternate history, and fanciful reimaginings.

And honestly, this Gustavus and the real painting of him... are definitely the same person, at least I would've easily recognised them as each other.

It's flavour, nothing more. Go learn to better apply spelling and grammar, develop critical thinking skills, then come back and restate to us your most valued expert opinion.

now listen here you idiot! doesn't matter how good he draws or how bad i draw, or my grammar. im gonna explain it to u really simple because u dont seem that bright... GUSTAVUS DIDN'T LOOK THAT WAY AND IF UR GONNA DRAW A HISTORICAL FIGURE FOR FUN OR FOR MONEY(ESPECIALLY FOR MONEY) U BETTER GET THE DAMN FACE RIGHT. and NO its not "flavour" its like drawing Hitler Asian, u what guys to draw Lionheart or Churchill wrong? i dont think so..

if u look att the Swedish king [link] Erik u might se why this annoyes me.

Yeah, I'm with Bel-Irkalli -- you have some bloody nerve complaining about ANYONE's accuracy or "getting it right" when you're the next thing to illiterate.

"if u look att" indeed. This artist has more talent in his nut sack than you'll ever have in your whole body.

My image of Gustavus comes from book series by novelist Eric Flint... for some reason I thought he was blond though. Thank for making him look so good or they might not have put him Gods and Kings.

Well yeah, this is more Erik XIV than Gustavus Adolphus, since his beard is long and not a short pointy one, though the moustache is spot on. Nonetheless, this is an outstanding piece that helped create a unique Civ5 leader. Great job!

It is extraordinary! Great work! Gustavus is certainly one of my favourite warrior-kings of all time. I hope you depict some other great captains of their time!
