If one wants to watch a movie filled with endless samurai action this is your film. I was reminded of Takashi Miike‘s bad ass warrior directing style when I recently saw a trailer for his adaptation of a comic book I used to follow by the same name.
Blade of the Immortal
This movie will be filled with more fantastical elements but will still probably be an endless blood bath of sword play. Look forward to seeing one of my favorite comics come to life.
If this falls in line with the quality of The Vikings I will be a happy medieval camper. Glad history channel is still willing to spend the money to make these historical reenactments for our entertainment. Hope they keep it up.
This is the last of my Jean-Claude Golvin that I have. Future historical reconstructions will be filled with other great artists that fit into this category, because I love imagining the environment that our ancestors lived in. Thank you Golvin for inspiring me to start this category and to dream bigger.
If you would like a hard copy like I tend to do, then here is where you can find one. Keep filling the treasure chest. Enjoy
These works are a good source for anyone trying to get concepts for world building projects, not just historical perspective. That is definitely why I started collecting these in the first place. One look at these birds eye view art pieces and whole worlds come alive.
For the French version of a Romanized Gaul one can collect Jean-Claude Golvin work here.
I recently stumbled across Darren Tan’s work. Its great being able to see work that’s being made in Singapore on concepts I enjoy. Most of his gallery is filled with other fantasy and sci-fi work, which I also appreciate, but for this site I collected all his more historical fiction work for future reference. These are a few places to find him…artstation deviantart
This is some related material published by Osprey Publishing and Illustrated by Darren Tan in case you would like to collect his work in paperback form.
