What would we have to do to get you to work up something for our local SCA group?  (www.okenshield.org)

Where the Magyar Hungarian? 

I remember they were mentioned briefly in The Historian, in relations to Hungary. But I never was able to figure out if they were Turks or Hungarians.

Yep, they were Hungarians. Or became Hungarians when they settled down. Anyway, in Hungarian language, Magyar=Hungarian so that pretty much settles it for me :)

I didn't know the Lechfeld was a forest. That explains the Magyar defeat.

You captured the mythic look of a very much real past.  Excellent!  It is all true to the period.

Salve, better horses - nice illustration, Historically, well, horses too big, they were about 140-150cm at withers, more spears, less swords as it went the spear, mace, ax and then sword as it was the last implement to be drawn etc. There is lots of Magyars reenactment pictures out there and there are many images on the web showing them etc, but the mistakes in such pieces belong to the author of the article or editors of the magazine and not the illustrator. So I like this illustration, mistakes notwithstanding :)

Wow, this looks really accurate as far as I can tell. I suppose the guy with the red cloak is king Otto?
I've been wondering for some time if they wore chainmail and nasal helmets at that time. I know they did in the 11th century. I thought in the 10th century scale armor was more common. This is what Franks in 9th century depictions use to wear...

Maybe you know more about it

Thanks dude! The guy in the red is soon-to-be-dead Conrad the Red. Chainmail has been known even in ancient times, as to the nasals they were around at that time as far as I know, but probably the author of the article would be a better person to discuss that with. I would recommend grabbing a copy of Medieval Warfare if you're interested in the subject, it's a good read.

Ah, thanks for the clarification. Yes, I know the Romans had chainmail. Judging by depictions I was under the impression it came out of use in the early middle ages and later reintroduced (by Normans, I thought). Could however be it co-existed with other forms of armor.

Dzięki Anderton! Właśnie mam poczucie, że tego mi brakuje, właśnie kompozycja i dynamizm to moje najsłabsze punkty obecnie, więc dobrze wiedzieć, że te elementy mogą się komuś podobać. Będzie lepiej!

no ja cię rozumiem, kompozycja to bardzo ważna rzecz w rysunkach, fotografii, grafice, we wszystkim, a jest bardzo trudna do opanowania.

facet lezacy na pierwszym planie wydaje sie rozplaszczony na siemi, a jego kon, ktort tez lezy chyba zgubił tułów. Chodzi mi o taka krawędz przy szyi tego konia. Ale ogolnie to szacun :P takie skomplikowane artworki :D

Dzieki za uwagi. Zachciało mi sie rzucić spłaszczający cień drzewa na tego poległego, a koniowi dałem pod siodło kocyk w kolorze trawy. Rozwiązania "mądre inaczej" :} No trudno, może następny z cyklu "bitwa" będzie lepszy...

ej ale miedzy tym kocykiem a krawedzia szyi jest taki prostokat trawy i to dziwnie wyglada. nie powinno byc tam wiecej ciala konia? XD i racja, rozwiazanie madre inaczej. tez tak mam czasem :D niefortunne decyzje po prostu.

Hmm na moje to tam lopatka konia wystaje. Ale moxe cos sie nie zgadza w anatomii.I pomyslec tylko, ze specjalnie w celu zdobycia refki musialem zastrzelic konia! Co prawda byl to tylko cyfrowy kon w grze Red Dead Redemption, ale i tak szkoda, ze zginal nadaremno...

:icontelthona:
telthona Featured By Owner Aug 10, 2012  Professional Digital Artist
hm.. to moze wlasnie dlatego anatomia lezy, bo uzyles konia z red read redemption. masz tu troche refek prawdziwych koni. [link] [link] [link] [link] [link] [link] [link]

Zaden z nich nie ma takiej wkleslosci za noga, a wrecz przeciwnie, wybrzuszenie, bo konie sa grube i maja duza klatke piersiowa xD nie ma zadnych wystajacych lopatek.
