Some illustrations of pikemen and musketeers I retouched to feature the latest colours and coat of arms I designed for my family and I. This post includes a combination of brand new artwork for the setting of my creative project, previous artwork I have retouched with improved colouring, and previous artwork that i have reposted for strictly archival purposes. Artwork for a creative 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 mounted and armoured knights fight alongside armies of pikemen and matchlock musketeers. In context to the lore of my creative project, House Maher is the ruling family of The Kingdom of Aquitaine. While many, if not most kingdoms and empires in the fantasy setting of my creative project do not have exact historical counterparts in either Medieval or Early Modern European History, The Kingdom of Aquitaine is my creative project’s rough equivalent of The Kingdom of France during the medieval and ancien regime periods.

While having no rough equivalent in medieval or early modern European History, The Margravate of Mazowsze borrows loose aesthetic influences from The Polish Lithuanian Commonwealth during the late medieval and renaissance periods while diverging from it in most other regards
