Art is so realistic that... How can I say? The problem of most arts for me is that it is too perfect. I'm not talking about the techniques. Art still requires excellent techniques. Perfect techniques are good. Nothing bad about perfect technique! And your techniques and skills are excellent! The problem is about the story. Many arts tell about supremely good or bad characters and I feel those are already lost. However, quite marvelous! Even in a formation forced by order, I can see differences in each individuals. That makes me think that sometimes imperfect is perfect. In sum, your skills are perfect. Your composition is flawless. Details and story about imperfect is perfect!

Great depiction of a 16th/17th Century pike formation! I've read one source stating that the sergeant might sometimes hold his halberd horizontally, using the pole to push three or four men at a time into the proper lines. Of course these men, already properly drilled, need no such adjustment.

Yeah, I read that too. The actual, pike, staff or halberd lost it's practical use as a weapon over time and became more of a guide for the sergeant or officer to get his troops in line. This is more during the 18th and 19th centuries though.

It didn't take as long as you would think. I own very similar stuff to what these guys are wearing. I just heavily manipulated the photos to make this. It took maybe around 10 hours of work.

digital painting or Photomanipulation?

RobbieMcSweeney Featured By Owner May 5, 2015  Professional Digital Artist
It's kind of both, but mostly photo manipulation. All the photos I used I took with my own gear on, so it gives it a little personal touch I guess haha

Macedonian phalanx* meets rennaisance warfare meets Lord of the Rings, am I right?

*Although I only mention it because of the cheek protectors.

Yep! you're kinda there! I'm a fan of 17th century warfare. The pike and shot stuff. I made the helmets look a little more Hellenic with the Thracian helmet look :)
