Archery Photoshoot - Free Use Refs Requested by Werecakes
Archery shoot! This is a very small shoot, with the intention of helping fantasy artists with real live fleshy archer interaction! (I Jadedsilk am the model in these images, and I am not at full draw in many of these shots or have mildly irregular “not perfect” posture because I am attempting not to shoot my photographer. Imagine that n.n;) Thank you TRPSTRIFE, for your photography help! Soon we will update with some male archery model shots. While nothing here is ‘perfect’ or of ‘wonderful quality’, our goal is to provide all level of artists with decent references that are free for use without having to sell their soul. :D We hope you enjoy! (Better versions being uploaded to DA now, net not cooperating tonight. Obviously, pics have to be small for tumblr.)
For any questions on stock usage, please refer to this journal here:

The people in our photographs are real people. We do not touch up, starve ourselves, or work out for anyone’s pleasure but our own. We believe in being ourselves and it shines through rather nicely. Please refrain from derogatory remarks about the models, shots, situations or photography. Remember. Free. <3
MAKE BEAUTIFUL ART <3
Please do not repost or re-upload these images anywhere else.
Yeah so I made a thing. Idk I was just bored and wanted to add some variety to the people I draw so I tried to make these with characteristics I dont see as much in what I draw.
Ok so was thinking about girls for most of the time I made these but they’re pretty versatile so I guess you could do whatever I don’t really care.
And if you use this to draw something you post tag me in it with #queenofawkward27 cuz I’m curious to see the results
I’m gonna tag this for a fandom. Damn hats are hard to draw! >:(
There’s always space for yet another armor tutorial, right? (ﾉ´ヮ´)ﾉ*:･ﾟ✧
Note that the armor I drew would be worn around 15th century, the more into the future the less and less components knight’s armor had (i. e. in early 14th century instead of greaves a knight would wear long boots only; in 12th century knights didn’t wear plate breastplates and instead a chain mail only). Also the design of armor pattern changed by year and was different in every country (i.e. in eastern Europe armors, while still looking European, were heavily influenced by Turkey). so just make sure you always do research whenever drawing an armor. And one more thing to keep in mind is that armors were expensive, knights wearing a full plate armor weren’t an often sight.
Some links that may be useful:
- Armour Archive (I strongly suggest to browse its forum, there is no country or period of which armor wouldn’t be discussed)
- Therion Arms (armorer’s page; each accessory is photographed in big resolution and several time so it’s a nice page to use as reference for drawing)
- Revival Clothing (another store, but both with medieval clothing and armors; I suggest to read the articles, they’re often supported with pictures)
- Basic Armouring:A Practical Introduction to Armour Making (pdf)
- Educational Charts (pdf, shows how armors and weapons changed over the years)
- Medieval & Renaissance Material Culture (actual medieval resources, mostly paintings. And my favourite subpage - women in armor)
- Dressing in Steel (youtube; a demonstration how to dress in armor)
- How shall a man be armed? (youtube; another demonstration but with 4 different knights from different periods)
Hi, just discovered your tumblr and thought you might find this project about skin color interesting.
A breakdown of medieval armor, since a lot of pieces are required to create a full suit.
