Some illustrations of knights I retouched to feature the colours and coat of arms I designed for James Hobson, a friend in England. Both the overall design as well as these illustration edits originally belonged to my friend Robert Moore before losing contact with him. These illustrations are 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 heavily armoured and mounted knights fight alongside armies of pikemen and matchlock musketeers, and my friends and family fulfill the roles of members of royal and aristocratic houses each with armies, lands, and fortunes at their disposal. In context to the lore of my creative project, House Hobson and The Kingdom of Albion are my creative project’s rough equivalent of The Kingdom of England under the Tudor and Stuart Dynasties from the end of the late medieval towards the early modern periods of European history.

Teddy Verstraet, Count of Lübeck. Nicknamed …

Teddy Verstraet, Count of Lübeck. Nicknamed “The Merchant Prince” or “The Sea Lion” by his contemporaries, Teddy Verstraet is both the head of House Von Verstraet and the current Count of Lübeck. One of the great lords of The Kingdom of Aquitaine, Teddy Verstraet and his family are the wealthiest house in the kingdom after The House of Maher, or their overlords and the ruling family of Aquitaine. Although the Von Verstraets of Lübeck have always been the richest family after the royal family themselves, thanks to their ancient rights to a trade fleet outside the jurisdiction of the royal family, the fortune of the Von Verstraets under the reign of Teddy Verstraet grew exponentially with a colonial charter to establish trade posts in overseas territories in the name of House Maher and The Kingdom of Aquitaine. Apart from the fabulous wealth of his family and he and his highly lucrative colonial charter made with the permission of his overlords, Teddy Verstraet is one of the finest admirals amongst the great lords of Aquitaine. He is second only to Kelian Gerbolino, the current count of the isle of Poitiers. This illustration was made as a late birthday present for Teddy Verstraet, a friend in France.

A repost of an illustration of a knight I retouched to feature the colours and coat of arms I designed for my friends Tylor Deaghaidh Leblanc and Felicia O’Dea Leblanc. 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 Deaghaidh is the ruling family of The Blood Court of Norsca. While having no rough equivalent in medieval or early modern european history, The Blood Court of Norsca is loosely inspired by a fusion of Medieval Norse Culture and Medieval Prussia under The Teutonic Knights. This repost was for strictly archival purposes and no changes have been made to this illustration since it’s previous post.

The coat of arms and an illustration of a knight I retouched to feature the colours and coat of arms I designed for Romain Kilbertus, a friend in France. 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 are fighting alongside armies of pikemen and matchlock musketeers. In context to the lore of my creative project, House Kilbertus is the ruling family of The County of Touraine, and one of the great vassals of House Maher of Aquitaine, or my creative project’s rough equivalent of The Kingdom of France during the medieval and ancien regime periods.
