Yep, more horse tattoos. The first was just a warm-up as I figured out how part of my dystopian gladiator culture worked in The Plague Legacy.
My world has nine gladiator houses, like the original gladiator schools in the Roman Empire called ludi. In my story, they are all privately owned, although the deck is stacked for those who want to maintain power.
After a fighter has passed a series of challenges, they earn the remaining parts of the tattoo and this is what it looks like when it’s finished. I do have a lot of details to work out with this futuristic ‘Roman’ culture based on the arena, but the drawing part is pretty fun.
More to come! If you want to catch up on the world of The Plague Legacy, the first in the series, Acquisitions, is available on Amazon (Print copies coming soon!).
