You should do an Aegon the Conqueror in a similar style to this!

I like to think he died in the saddle, and then fell off his horse. Either way he was a fantastic General, tactician, and King.

Yes, I imagine Europe would be a far different place had he not won the field at Hastings.

Why yes, I am quite interested. I just have to make sure that I have enough time to complete it, as I will be returning to school on the 25th.

You'd have to June or July to finish it? Price? Do you need to read the books first?

William's conquest of England did amazing things for the English language.

Indeed. We're wrapping up our discussion of Middle English in my History of the English Language class. If it weren't for William, we wouldn't have Middle English, and by extension Modern English, today.

A very nice piece indeed, though the clothing/armor aren't traditional. I love the pose you put him in, makes him act like one of those "you shouldn't mess with me" types of people. XD

Yeah, the piece came from a time when I was reading everything Arthurian and therefore, historical accuracy kind of went out the window after a while haha. I'm glad you like the piece : )

Again very nice picture. Interesting pose but I think the right arm looks a little bit strange from this angle (but I'm not an artist). Still it's another good work from you.

thanks, I'm glad you like it, and I know what you mean about the arm, it does look a tad off. Haha and don't think that just because you aren't an 'artist' you can't be critical :), I value any and all constructive criticism! It means a lot to me just having people look at my drawings haha

Wait. You do know that the Franks were once Germanic themselves, don't you?

InfernalFinn Featured By Owner Jan 14, 2008
ahh but you see the name Norman comes from the words Northman/Norseman as they were descendants of the Vikings, and therefore very close to their Germanic brethren :)

I'm glad you like it.
