All you need are incredible art skills, and you too can look like King Leonidas. This is Mr Nagata from Japanese comedy site Omocoro, which recently had artist Hikaru Cho paint him a chiselled chest.
The process took over three hours and lots and lots of paint. And, from the looks of it, a haircut.
But the result is amazing!
The effect only works if you're running around with a shield and a sword.
Less so when slouched shirtless in front of a computer.
