Tackar! min vän som tog bilden är jätte duktig fotograf som tar sitt yrke på fullt allvar! :)
även om min dräkt blivit bättre sedan dess är det inte någon bild som är lika bra direkt! ;)

Du själv är otroligt bra på teckna! :D

Vad kul att ni kan jobba så bra ihop!
Har du gjort hela rustningen själv? Satt och kollade igenom dina bilder och är djupt imponerad. Önskar verkligen att jag var lika duktig på kostymskapande eller att jag i alla fall tog mig tid att försöka göra något så pass seriöst.

Åh, tack så hemskt mycket! :D

På just denna bilden så har jag ej gjort harnesket, hjälmen, stövlarna, handskarna. så de mesta är köpt. MEN sen om man tittar på den senaste bilden jag laddade upp så har jag gjort allt på den. :)

Jo det handlar ju om att ta sig tiden. var rustnings del lägger jag ca 20 arbets timmar på minst. så minimum 200timmar på min rustning jag har just nu som är senaste bilden jag lade upp. ^^

Oj, är inte det jättedyrt? Fast i och för sig, investerar man i sitt eget intresse är det ju nästan alltid värt det.

Hur många olika rustningar har du?

Såg bilden och du är ju helt otroligt begåvad! Självklart handlar det om att ta sig tid men det krävs ju även talang vilket du uppenbarligen har mycket av :)Säljer du olika sorters smiden också eller är det "bara" en hobby?

de mesta jag gör stannar hos mig, men händer att jag gör till andra samt när jag uppgraderar min egna rustning säljer jag den gamle delen ^^

Men det är bara en Hobby har annat fulltids jobb som tar all min tid, sedan håller jag på att flytta närmare jobbet så jag kommer komma ifrån min smedja i framtiden då den är hos mina föräldrar.. men man kan alltid köra hem om för jobba lite i den ^^

jag har 2 rustningar så att säga en 1400tal och en 1300tal :P

I see :)

Åh nej, att flytta ifrån sitt "hobby-ställe" är typ bland de värsta sakerna som finns. Jag jobbar som Au Pair i USA och lämnade alla mina teckningsinstrument hemma i Sverige. Har inte ritat något riktigt bra på snart sju månader nu. Visst kan jag åka och köpa saker här men det är onödiga pengar då det bara kommer ta extra plats och bli veckat och fult på hemresan. Nu kanske inte du flyttar så långt bort men ja, du fattar principen.

Gör du mycket historieforskning bakom varje rustning för att få den tidsmässigt riktig?

Förlåt om jag ställer så många frågor men jag tycker det är så intressant! :D

min egna rustning så tittar jag på rustningar från perioden jag vill ha exempel 1470tal sverige/tyskland, samt tittar på rustningar från 1450-1490 (när liggande årtal) samman ställer information och börjar jobba ;)

Om en vän vill ha en rustning så brukar jag säga "säg vad du vill ha så skall vi se vad vi kan göra" men problemet är att de inte är så många som vill ha historiska utan mer fantasy... och jag tycker inte det är skoj att göra fantasy rustningar... :P
gör samma sak med de mesta jag gör inom historiskt återskapande! :)

Vart i sverige kommer du i från måste jag fråga? :P
samt när kommer du hem igen? ^^

Det är bara till att fråga på, tycker det är skoj när konstnärer intresserar sig i andra konstnärers arbete ^^

Well This is cool and all but most Knights and Soldiers did not have long hair, at least not when they go to war or in a time of war. Long hair like that can get pulled in battle or in a fight; also it is hard to keep good hygiene in the field with long hair like that... Other then that, great armor! I have a few Sallets my self. I would like to get some German Gothic plate one day...

The helmet... is it a sallet? It's my favorite kind of helmet. Unfortunately everyone I know only has pig faces and bacinets.

Too bad I'm a woman... They only let me wear dresses. Ahah. But being at the tents helping them putting the armour on isn't that bad, I get to know how to dress a knight! But again, unfortunately, most of the fairs there in Portugal are 12th/13th century reenactments. We only get like two to four 14th century shows. Even as a woman, I'm dying to wear some 15th/16th century costumes!

Next year come to Portugal, to Santa Maria da Feira. In July/August we have a 12th century fair, and it is known to be one of the biggest around Europe. *and this is me, being a pain in the ass*

I want those gauntlets! The details on them are beautiful.
The chainmail seems to need a hell of patience to be made, right? (I don't know anything about how to make them, maybe they're easier than I think)

More gauntlet details :clap: are those really cutout-hearts?:)

But the leg armour is different than in the other picture, right? Each plate has a downward point on the other one, or maybe my eyes are playing a trick on me :B

I've got one of your right leg armour too :), and your helmet and your right arm from elbow to shoulder - I've basically drawn you in bits and pieces :lmao:
The whole scan-print-glue on cardboard-idea isn't so farfetched after all!
I'll post them when I finish the drawing :D

I made the chainmail, the arms and legs, but the rest are not my work.. I purchase it before I was on my current level of armor producing.

but I shall start on a new full plate armour that will resemble this one but it will be made by me :)
