the scripts for the take your place in the inquisition contest bioware is running. i’d enter if the roles of bitter villager or cat-obsessed seneschal were supposed to sound like a deep-voiced fran drescher.

Dragon Age: Inquisition
I’m not even crazy about chest hair but this is so important (thanks, haymakers9th)
OH THANK THE MAKER.
From the maker’s mouth, rest at ease my pretties.
Do you Know what is happening in Venezuela? This is what is happening. This is what has been happening during a week. The students have been protesting in a pacific way against the repressive and tyrant government that we have since 1999 (yes, 15 years living with insecurity, food and medicine shortages, deprivation of liberty, and media blackout) and what is the police and the army doing? Beating us, shooting us, and recently some students were condemned to jail for 13 years!! For what crime? For claiming justice and democracy. Please, share this post, the world needs to know.
There’s always space for yet another armor tutorial, right? (ﾉ´ヮ´)ﾉ*:･ﾟ✧
Note that the armor I drew would be worn around 15th century, the more into the future the less and less components knight’s armor had (i. e. in early 14th century instead of greaves a knight would wear long boots only; in 12th century knights didn’t wear plate breastplates and instead a chain mail only). Also the design of armor pattern changed by year and was different in every country (i.e. in eastern Europe armors, while still looking European, were heavily influenced by Turkey). so just make sure you always do research whenever drawing an armor. And one more thing to keep in mind is that armors were expensive, knights wearing a full plate armor weren’t an often sight.
Some links that may be useful:
- Armour Archive (I strongly suggest to browse its forum, there is no country or period of which armor wouldn’t be discussed)
- Therion Arms (armorer’s page; each accessory is photographed in big resolution and several time so it’s a nice page to use as reference for drawing)
- Revival Clothing (another store, but both with medieval clothing and armors; I suggest to read the articles, they’re often supported with pictures)
- Basic Armouring:A Practical Introduction to Armour Making (pdf)
- Educational Charts (pdf, shows how armors and weapons changed over the years)
- Medieval & Renaissance Material Culture (actual medieval resources, mostly paintings. And my favourite subpage - women in armor)
- Dressing in Steel (youtube; a demonstration how to dress in armor)
- How shall a man be armed? (youtube; another demonstration but with 4 different knights from different periods)
!! Woah guys! Pixelovely’s new tools are finally out, one for hands & feet, and one for faces!

This is super cool news and I certainly can’t wait to start using them haha
Daily Draw February 21st & 22nd:-
Sorry there was no update yesterday, we lost internet and literally didn’t get it back til this afternoon.
Things are probably going to get a bit complex from now on as i’m finishing this month with my “ideal” companion lineup for Inquisition. Obviously i’m working off only a couple of pieces of concept art and some teeny weeny thumbnails from a leaked survey. It’s proving challenging to say the least.
Have some completely inaccurate Iron Bull and Dorian Pavus. I kinda fell in love with both of them when I was sketching these. Iron Bull because he’s essentially the Incredible Bulk and Dorian because his robes and facial hair have major swag.
