The escutcheon I designed and some illustrations of Pikemen, Musketeers, and Artillery Crewmen I retouched to feature the colours and escutcheon I designed for my friend Kayven Beemer. The escutcheon and these illustrations were made for a fantasy project of my design that takes place in a low-fantasy setting with technology equivalent to the late medieval and renaissance periods. Where formations of heavily armoured and mounted knights fight alongside armies of pikemen and matchlock musketeers, and where my friends and family fulfill the roles of members of royal and aristocratic households each with great military, political, and financial assets at their disposal. In context to the lore of my fantasy project, House Beemer is the ruling family of The Margraviate of Mazowsze, a kingdom loosely inspired by the aesthetic and culture of The Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth of late medieval and early modern European history. Although taking a degree of inspiration from the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth of European history, The Margraviate of Mazowsze differs from it’s historical inspiration in terms of the patterns of it’s historical development in the world of my fantasy setting.

The escutcheon I designed and some illustrations of pikemen, musketeers, and artillerymen I retouched to feature the colours and coat of arms I designed for my friend Joe Hayes. Formerly the escutcheon I designed and the illustrations I edited for my friend Sebastian Glen before losing touch with the latter. Artwork for a fantasy project of my design featuring technology equivalent to the late medieval and renaissance periods. Where formations of heavily armoured and mounted knights fight in unison with armies of pikemen and matchlock musketeers, and my friends and family fulfill the roles of members of royal and aristocratic households each with armies, lands, and fortunes at their disposal. In context to the lore of my fantasy project, House Hayes is the newly elected ruling family of The Margraviate of Mazowsze in the setting of my fantasy project following the extinction of House Glen during the last Khashabar invasion of Mazowsze. The Margraviate of Mazowsze is my fantasy project’s rough equivalent to The Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth in European history from the 15th to 17th centuries, despite diverging heavily from the historical patterns of it’s real world inspiration.

The escutcheon I designed and some illustrations of Streltsy(Russian for “Shooters”) I retouched to feature the colours and coats of arms I designed for Daniil Gronsky, a friend in France of Russian origin. This escutcheon and all it’s associated designs were originally attributed to my friend Gregory Romanovitch Maev before losing contact with the latter. The coat of arms and illustrations I designed are for a creative project of my invention that takes place in a low fantasy setting with technology equivalent to the late medieval and renaissance periods. Where formations of heavily armoured and mounted knights fight alongside armies of pikemen and matchlock musketeers, and my friends and family fulfill the roles of members of aristocratic and royal households each with great military, political, and financial assets at their disposal. In context to the lore of my creative project, House Gronsky is the newly annointed royal house of The Tsardom of Rus’skaya. While many kingdoms and empires in the low fantasy setting of my creative project have no exact equivalent in either medieval or early modern European history, The Tsardom of Rus’skaya is my creative project’s rough equivalent to Russia during the Tsarist period of late medieval and early modern European history. (1547-1917.)
