I'd like to see what kind of a weapon such paladins use. This is pretty much awesome, in every way. It's rare that a truly skilled artist, (like yourself,) also knows a thing or two about medieval armour & weaponry, but I see that that is the case here! It's a pleasure to see that someone actually know about the stuff they draw, when it comes to these sword & shield- things.

Thanks a bunch man!
Well, actually this is like a hobby for me, to collect and study information and images about medieval warfare,so it's very pleasant when someone recognize it in my work.
The arsenal of such a paladin(he's a friend's RPG character of a campaign of mine)is a long sword (14century style) and a cavalry lance, of course.
thanks for the comment, see you.

His proud gesture seemed just like when a knight has won a war with dragon, or won a lady's heart. Superb :D

This is really great. I love how the hooves of the horse sink into the leaves, and the way one rests on top of the tree root. I also like the way the autumn leaves fall. The pose and posture of the knight is great, and I like that it seems like I'm looking up at him from the ground. Beautiful. :) By the way I was showing my sister my faves and we came up on your work. She saw other medieval pieces before that, but when she saw your work she pointed at the screen with big eyes and exclaimed "Oh my god,...this artist draws the same things you do! You're like soulmates!" :rofl: Yes,...because nobody besides me enjoys the medieval theme. :no: :XD: I'll tell her to get out more. :D

THIS is really great! To come to job early morning, with my head humming with a headache, the bus was overcrowded, someone there stinks like a wet dog....and after this I sit in my desk and read this!
Again, you made my day!
This horse was a real challenge...actually I made it with a lot of mistakes, anatomy, perspective...this is the corrected version. I make some modification in the original, by cuting and pasting the paper, and lately by photoshop.
It'n not perfec, but if you could see the original....well it got very better.
The eleaves! oh! I just can imagine how it fall, here the leaves never fall, not even in the autumn!
The description of your sister's reaction was specially warm and nice! How old is she?
Nobody besides me enjoys the medieval theme too! When I started here in DA I was expecting a lot of people making this type of art, but what a surprise! Just one or two pieces, almost no one who dedicates exclusively to the theme...
Because of this, nice to meet your art! I never met people who draw the medieval theme personally, but I tought this was because I'm in brasil, far away from europe, now I see I'm wrong.
Thank you!Thank you!Thank you!
A verey big hug to you and your sis, friend of mine!

:lol: That sounds like a great morning. :XD: ;) The wet dog smell is not good. :no: I hope your headache is letting up, though staring at a computer screen might not do it much good.

The perspective of the horse and knight are very difficult from this angle. I have tried in the past to make it look like I'm looking up at them, but I have yet to produce a successful image. I think you did very well with it. :)
The leaves are very convincing. That's what it looks like! :) I wish you could see the forests changing. There are bright and deep reds, yellows, some green, brown,.... all sorts of colors. After it rains, the bark of the trees looks almost black, and this creates a strong contrast between colors. Maybe in a past life you lived somewhere in Europe. ;)
You're right, not too many medieval-theme lovers, but I found a few here and there, and glad to have found your gallery. :nod: Too much anime here.
My sister is 24 years old.
You're very welcome! :hug:

que isso é um segredo....eu tinha errado a anatomia do cavalo, daí desenhei novamente, e não teve como tirar a pata dalí sem mexer no resto da ilu, porque o cavaleiro estava fixo no lugar.....
mas vc tem olhos muuuito apurados, ninguém tinha notado isso. Por esse motivo que eu disse por que o povo gosta tanto dessa? eu não gosto muito devido a esse fato. hehehheheh vc descobriu meu segredo, agora não poderá continuar vivendo!hahahah
