Art Cooperation: Armor Page 2

Before I get fully involved in debugging my video game this morning I wanted to post some more of my reference library online.   A quick reminder that this isn’t to use for resale, or to use in print work but rather as reference for illustration and lighting or to be used as you see fit for textures.

The reason I love this series of photos so much and I think I have around 600 photographs of the armor and armaments, is the richness in the design of the armor.  There is the shape of each piece and how it fits together and overlaps.  There is also the intricate detail in the armor which is stunning.  You also get a great sense of lighting as well as the tiny detail, the pitted metal, the inlay work.  All the things that go into making something look authentic and real can be studied in these photos.

I’m including some of my photos of the horses and of course varying the angles trying to make partial turntables where I could as I shot.
