Back on the Knights again

An experiment in colouring up a sketchbook drawing. It's fun, but a little time consuming for what I'm planning to do with it.

Below: Here is the original drawing, about 2 inches high and photographed late at night.

Medieval Weapons Research

This morning I was flicking through library books looking for reference material. Here's a page from my Moleskine regarding the spikey pointy weapons of medieval soldiers, drawn direct with one of those spikey pointy Pilot G-Tec-C4 pens.

My Medieval Background


Sketch for a background scene. Light source in the drawing is from the light box, other than that it's just pencil and paper.

Drawing and Re-Drawing


Busy light boxing a character today, trying to give him a more  'medieval' character and greasy chicken lips. The pencilled version was taking far too long to do properly, so resorted back to marker pens, particually the PITT Calligraphy Pen. Which, for what the drawing will be used for, is going to create a better image.
