Another illustration of the battle of Mongisard for editorial Sol90. We prefer to represent a previous situation, when the king prays in front of a reliquary that contains remains of the "True Cross". Baldwin'sversion is based on the Ridley Scott's movie.
Photoshop and Painter.

Long time no post . Figured I'd post one today. This is a remake of an old painting WIP I had a while back - i lost it a long time ago but i finially got a round to finishing a new version for it. It took about 48 or so hours all in all to complete.
Another illustration done for Medieval Warfare Magazine a few months back.
This is the battle of Kutna Hora fought in a cold winter night between the Hussites, led by the famous commander, Jan Zizka, and the combined Hungarian and German coalition led by King Sigismund of Hungary (also soon to be Holy Roman Emperor). As you will notice the Hussites were a primarily infantry force based around the tactic of using war wagons as a bastion against enemy heavy cavalry assaults, a tactic Jan Zizka used to devastating effect and hence made popular among medieval armies of the European east. Here The Hungarians and Germans are caught off guard as Jan Zizka conducts an offensive push to break through the royalist forces which have surrounded his own.
Its was also interesting to read about the Hussite heresy and how it came about and why the Church was adamantly against them. There was even a letter sent by Saint Jeanne d'Arc to the Hussites threatening them with extermination if they did not renounce their heresy and embrace Catholic orthodoxy. Of course in such wars there's also always a whole lot of local politics involved which drove the conflict.
Hope you guys enjoy this piece

This is an illustration done for Medieval Warfare Magazine, a dutch publication. It depicts a battle between the lightly armed but battle-hardened Almogavars of the infamous Catalan Company and the French Knights of the Duchy of Athens. Guess who won.
