Thank you, Sandor.


The red banner can be found in the Freiburger Fahnenbuch. Sadly there are no further information where it was taken or to who it belonged.
Together with some other it does not follow the pattern of the banners of the burgundy ordonnance compagnies. So the function of this banner is not quiet clear and I decided to use it for the vanguard together with some other not ordonnance banner  I 'm going to paint.

At long last there is something new!!!!
Very nice!
Especially I like the meticulous rendering of the Burgund-banner!
I haven't seen the second banner (on the red-base) yet - how did it come from?
Anyway: nice work Christoph!

Thanks for your comments.
Here is the next picture. This time more homme de armes of the vanguard with to banners. The red one is based on a burgundy banner taken by the swiss.

The intense black/dark lining of the characters give a very special brand onto these paintings, a kind of cartoon characters, like Mickey Mouse , but not on paper, but in the space.


This style is very unique to Christoph, giving a strange but beautiful aspect to the characters.


The observation of a white background is valid, white is probably the worst background to give, because it darken strongly the colours to the eyes of the spectator and reader.  Black emphasize the colour le most but is uniform.


Probably a light brown or creamy tone would reduce this contrast, that human eyes cannot withstand without reacting.  To give normal colours, we have to lighten the picture and the white background will become so luminous that it will hurt the eyes, like looking at someone placed between the sun and yourself !!

I don't like the horse efforts.  You look unreal.  Everything without real color direction of light and shadow.  I'm sorry.  The main thing is colorful..
best regards

Very nice!
I like the blazon on the first trompeter!
The "metallic" finish on the neck-armor of the last but one horse is also a hit!

That is a good question I'm thinking about at the moment.

What is your preferred method for displaying series of flats?

Thanks


Next goal is to complete the vanguard.


So here is the first part. Two trompeters, a captain with a local nobleman, serving as guide. Next is the captain's page riding his masters warhorse, carrying his helmet and lance. Followed by a homme de armes.

Excellently painted series, I am struck in this grouping by the detail painting--well done.
