I think I’m insane now, but I feel that I must. I’ll try to stay on time, but that’s what I said when I started the Tamora Pierce one last fall. (I’m now on Day 27.) I’ll try, but I’ve got the ACT and AP tests coming up, so lend me grace, s’il vous plait. :)

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:

There’s always room for another armour tutorial!

The links are excellent, but watch out for the Educational Charts, which are from 1917. Much of the information and terminology is outdated, and there are a couple of out-and-out mistakes: e.g. a ballista is shown on the crossbow page as being current 1400-500 AD.

This is incorrect. The true ballista as shown in the drawing is a Classical Greek / Roman twin-spring torsion weapon that went out of use about a thousand years before. Its medieval equivalent was either a Great Crossbow which looked similar but had a different method of operation (tension, not torsion) or a springald which looked very different indeed. The word “ballista” still turns up in books and websites even though it shouldn’t be used for medieval weapons. Calling a cow a horse won’t make it into something that can win the Derby.

There’s also a drawing of a Norman wearing the “mail bib-and-breeches” interpretation of a hauberk which had been discredited by most military historians even when the charts were being produced. It was based on the Bayeux Tapestry…

…where the art probably represents needlewomen trying to show how something much heavier than cloth clung so closely to to its wearer’s legs.

They got the hauberk design much clearer in the little margin illustrations of mail-shirts being stripped off corpses by being pulled over the head like, well, shirts, but by then I suspect some historians had got their names and reputations associated with the bib-and-breeches design and were reluctant to admit the error.

Moral: look at more than one source of reference. Google is your friend.
