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.

You can read more about the battle here >> [link]

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.

A commission work for [link]

I quite enjoyed working on it. Here a little description of the character, Estevao:

Estev„o is a Knight of the Order of Santiago, and one of the favorite of the Master of the Order, Dom Paio Peres Correia.
After two failed attempts in the Conquest of the Paderne Castle, Estev„o crosses with Princess Rasha, daughter of Rashid, the Mayor of the Paderne Castle, and the two fall in love and plan to escape together.
But Dom Paio Peres Correia won't give up, and the final conquest of the Paderne Castle, in 1249, will change their fate forever...

One of my characters. Over the years her basic design hasn't changed much, though I am still working on costumes.

this is my last painting .

i tried to portray him as a strong man, his ambition is not the battlefield and his army respects him for it.
however, his enemies refer to him as a demon.

An illustration of a Teutonic brother knight done for a historical magazine. It was such a pleasure to work on a subject I privately find so interesting.

"Come here pretty boy...seems like you gotta opening in your armor...let me "fill" it up."

Thinking of what kind of character I'd have in War of the Roses. [link]
Light armor and a warhammer. Going to open up those pesky full plated knights.

Been pretty busy with commissions and stuff recently, so still alive! :]

Some rough paintings of medieval warriors. Focused more on colors and values on these one rather than details and desing. These are quite fun to do :)

Top left. European knight
Top right. Russian warrior
Bottom left. European crossbowman
Bottom right. Viking


The Viking guy is actually some basic desing of my armor. Might add a hauberk on top of that. I really want to get back to swordfighting and have been interested in viking weapons lately, especially the round shield and it's techniques. They had very sophisticated fighting. Not just rage rush kill. Take a look: [link]
I've been thinking of getting together a small reenactment group themed around early nordic/slavic warriors. Fighting for fun and show.
