Concept art for the Rome II. Siege battle in the Middle East some two thousand years ago, when the Roman legions are trying to take the Persian city. My most complicated work recently, especially the characters were a pain to do. All done in Ps + wacom
I don't know how long it took me but it was long. And tedious. But! It's DONE!!
a concept of the early medieval period, more of an inclination towards the Romanesque period, peasant & domestic lifestyle rather than fairytale castles. Collected loads of medieval Romanesque reference to do this. Also inspired by Assassins creed. yea! haha.
Class project. Understanding of light, shadow and value.
Hi, This is the second level rider unit for Scythians: "Katafrakt"
The Scythians or Scyths were an Ancient Iranian people of horse-riding nomadic pastoralists who throughout Classical Antiquity dominated the Pontic-Caspian steppe, known at the time as Scythia. By Late Antiquity the closely-related Sarmatians came to dominate the Scythians in this area. Much of the surviving information about the Scythians comes from the Greek historian Herodotus (c. 440 BC) in his Histories, and archaeologically from the exquisite goldwork found in Scythian burial mounds in Ukraine and Southern Russia.
The name "Scythian" has also been used to refer to various peoples seen as similar to the Scythians, or who lived anywhere in a vast area covering present-day Ukraine, Russia and Central Asiaknown until medieval times as Scythia. Scholarly consensus since the 19th century identifies the Scythians (Saka) of Antiquity as an Iranian people, and their Scytho-Sarmatian language (the predecessor of the Ossetic language) as a Northeastern Iranian language. It should be noted that this does not hold for times after the 5th century AD, as, with the expansion of the Göktürk empire and Turkic migration, Central Asia came under Turkic dominance, and the Sakha of medieval times are undisputedly a Turkic nation.
