Citadel by JanBoruta Citadel by JanBoruta
Middle of XII or XIII century. Somewhere in Syria or Palestine, a lone, Templar stronghold tries to resist another Saracen assault.

...

Finally, after weeks of waiting, I've finished it. But the drawing took only about 6-8 hours. Really not much time. HB pencil used for sketch and 4B for shading.

Enjoy,
Tom :)

They were at least exciting, not today's ranged warfare without any honour of killing an enemy in a melee combat.

Well, I was also afraid of that drawing when I started shading the soldiers, but eventually I managed to continue drawing it after two weeks' break :)

Thanks :D

Looks VERY fine- especially the spears and the further ranks of attackers plus the base elements and slopes under castle walls

This reminds me of a Swedish book about a Swedish Medieval man who is forced to join the templars after committing religious crimes. There is quite a few bloody scenes in the book and this drawing made it all come back to me.
Nice work, as always!
