A battle scene.

In retrospect, this was a very hard image for me to paint. Not only was it a unfamiliar subject matter, but it was also tricky medium to do an illustration in. I think next time I will have to work much bigger to get the details to show up more clearly. This image could have used a lot more work, but after awhile, I just couldn't look at it anymore!

Hi Annie,

This is an excellent piece, so this isn't meant a criticism, but there is one detail here that may or may not apply since I cannot place the image historically, but the stirrups look out of place. If I knew the actual setting I could answer this. Of course, if it's fantasy, I guess it doesn't matter. :)

Hi Al!

Thank you for letting me know. Since its just a fantasy piece, I didn't have a particular time period in mind. I will have to remember that when I revise this image!
