Art of the Sword by Merlkir Art of the Sword by Merlkir
A website background drawing I did for a Czech sword fighting entertainment group - Immortalis.

It was kinda quick, but I enjoyed drawing in this simplified style. I tried to make it look like the 15-16th century fencing manual illustrations.
Those usually have less "costume" and more generic dudes though, so I had to make it more interesting since it's for promotion.

ArtRage and a stock texture which I wish I could credit. (sadly I lost the original file, so no idea where I downloaded that from)

Very nice! Much looks like something out of Dürer's or Meyer's manuals ;D

you should find someone willing to pay you to illustrate an entire fight manual, your style is cool and clear. i would definitely make that purchase.
