I still waiting for Johnny to post what he promised, that one would be King Philip II of Macedon...But see, Johnny is a little rebel, he instead do other kind of drawings first. Smile

PS: What kind of drawing you would like to see better than pikemen & cavalrymen instead Josef? :?

Thank you Guys Smile ... yes Johnny is one of many members that give flavor to this forum...

There is also another one, a guy called Tarbicus :roll: , with a diferent talent and has a surprice ...gosh! when he will post that Greek illustrtion with a unique helmet? :|

Sigh! he is just like Johnny, bunch of rebels :twisted:
================================================

Josef, the horse archer, is in fact a Scythian, his trouser in Scythian, yea I know they look a bit like the persians, but Scythians adds gold figures on it. Scythians trade or fought with Greeks who lived around the Black sea, that how they get the mixture of greek stuff in their armor gear.

Johnny used these for inspiration.

- Scythian

I've got a question for some artists here - how do you make your aspides on photoshop/corel/whatever? Any particular rounding tool, or just practice? I.e. Nick Panos' shields look particularly 'perfect', especially once the blazon is on them. Almost looks like they were made in another program.

I'm very impressed by Johnny's work, and the horse postures are very dramatic, but I notice the reins are always slack and flying everywhere - except in the case of the mounted archer, which is the one place you might expect this, the reins aren't held, but they look taut. Many artists do this - I think it's intended to add to the sense of movement and drama, but it detracts from the picture's effectiveness for anyone who rides in combat. Yes, you can fight without reins, but it's dangerous to leave them loose, better to knot them up short before you drop them. And you can't pull a horse's head round with slack reins.

Looks nice, but there are some points that I would change, for instance the position of the quiver and, most of all, the image should be mirrored - this guy is left-handed....
