Many thanks for your kind comments Latheaxe :)

No, I was just inspired by Housecarl's lovely drawing and thought I would have a go as well. I do enjoy sketching military scenes, but have alot to learn. Now if I could draw like Graham Turner or Richard Scollins I might give it a go 8)

Looks good enough to sell to me too.

And actually, it's far superior to the pictures I've seen in some Ospreys!*


Love the rips in the jupon(s).







* thinking of ones that are completely out of proportion, rather than anything about accuracy, as that's down to the writer. There's one (no idea of his name :oops: ) who draws blokes with huge heads and tiny wee bodies...

Nice work.

Stu, drawing is liek anything else, dependent on practice* and some natural ability to start with, not bad at all mate. Keep at it.

*wishes I heeded my own advice.

Marc and Debbie are right - people would buy those (the pictures, not Marc and Debbie).

Jorge, that's good advice - practice, practice and practice some more and Steve many thanks for your very kind critique.

Right I'm off to scribble some more (or was that dribble?) :wink:

As an amature artist, I've put my works on here numerous times and other sites related to WMA and re-enactment, and also put them on Ebay and written to various museums and such, without success.

I am more likely to get commissions rather than people actually buying the works that I produce.

Sorry to be negative, but it is bloomin' hard to get anything sold, no matter how many times people say your work is 'good' or 'worth selling'. It's wonderful to get encouragement, but people and their money are difficult to part!!!

p.s. nice picture - try some shading in colour, or grey-scale for greater contrast and a more striking effect. ;)

Hi Frances, I have seen some examples of your artwork (the knights on the wooden panels) and they are kovely, extremely good and would appeal to us Medieval types. Unfortunately, I think the Credit Crunch' is really hitting everybody and where people really want to purchase items they just don't have the available cash to do so, it's all very sad :( Hopefully things will pick up again soon. Keep up the great artwork, we like it muchly 8)

Thanks for the kind words and good art tip. Yes, I am going to try and expand my own style of drawing by loseing the drawn outline and forming it instead by the contrast in the various areas of different shading. Not easy, but hopefully should produce better results. :)
