Historical Warrior Illustration Series Part XXVII

Milek Jakubiec

At times I question why I would bother gathering these images when they are already displayed on sites like deviantart and artstation. And then I remember it’s about the focus of these postings and the joy of discovering these artists works, which in the case of Milek Jakubiec is responsible for much of the concept art for my favorite game series Total War.  Check out his other artistic styles at the links above and enjoy.

The Last Kingdom

Second Season

First Season

I do hope they renew this series for another season.  With Netflix joining the team I hope they can increase the scale and scope of the show. While the first two seasons lacked some of the dark grimy conditions that I wished to see portrayed from Bernard Cornwell’s Saxon Stories, I’m still a junkie for medieval historical fiction dramas. It would be great if they filmed the whole series, but with ten plus books and counting that’s unlikely.

Historical Reconstructions Part II

Jean-Claude Golvin

Golvin’s vivid images bring me back to an age that seems not of this world, yet stands in marble a mere two thousand years old in places like Rome.  Some of these lands I have visited to feel the richness of that history.  Others I’m still excited about seeing with my own eyes.  Till then these will have to suffice.
