The battle of Ilion WIP. Third painting in the Tibi Soli series.

This is how messy my first layers always look. I am painting over the first layer of something I changed my mind about.

Also I am learning as I go to paint this weirdly disproportioned, somewhat comical 1500ish people and horses.

I am a big fan of Loyset Liédet. Technically, he wasn’t the best illustrator but his drawings are always very dynamic.

This is supposed to be serious but it’s hilarious.

Also by Liédet I believe. Look at those hats. The one on the right looks like a 15th century version of a hipster. And the biggest oddity of all: why is that man in the front wearing two different shoes? And there is even a clock in the background.
