Hi Everyone, In this blogpost i would like to talk a bit about my experience on my first expo, especially the opening, and i hope it encourages you to set up your own! How it all started I went to an exposition of friends, around a year before i decided to do mine. They were present at a local art collective and they invited friends and family. Food was present, music even and a general good vibe. I wanted to try something similar. So i am a regular customer at my local American Book Center and i noticed that they organize various expositions upstairs. One day i just asked the store clerk if i could enter, and after showing my work he was

Hi everyone, Here is another Walkthrough from one of my recent more succesful paintings (2 yr). It depicts William Wallace, After being slain by the english. His king makes a pact with the Gwyllions of Wales to resurrect him, by stitching him while he is nailed to trees. Just playing around with history and myth around the same area and time. Resurrection of the Outlaw King ''The Guardian of Scotland is Dead; Betrayed by our enemies, branded traitor and mercilessly executed.'' Hope is lost among the Clansmen, but I, Robert the Bruce, Heir to the Scottish throne did not. The Gwyllions of Wales want to play.They have recovered William's d

Hi everyone, Now that ive shared the process of learning the craft through a mentorship i would like to explain how i made various of my portfolio pieces. Today we will talk about my piece the Khan and the Horselord, An interpretation of the tale where the devil promises Jesus the world but he declines, but in this storyline the devil goes to Genghis Khan and promises him the same. The latter accepts thus he becomes the greatest conqueror in history. ''Who am i you ask'' The hooded stranger grinned.

Ive made a big collection with all your concept s that are more or less inspired by history. I want to feature them in our group ArsMilitaria | DeviantArt. The problem is that 1) I dont know where to put them since they are not that fantasy like others out there and 2) there are so many and we are not focusing on game concept art.

Also Im limited to 10 submisission per day even as group founder so I m afraid Ill ask you to do this from your side (on several days). Here is the collection (I might update it a bit these days) Orphydian - Hobbyist, General Artist | DeviantArt

Pls let me know which are the most historical pieces of all of this and submit those first before everything esle

Thankyou Kindly For The Watch :)
