I always find it strange when I start questioning something like why no one has made a film or show about Robert the Bruce, especially after Braveheart’s success, and then I come to find that since August Netflix has been posting trailers about this upcoming film in November. Whhhhaaaattttt???? Now I wish they had made this into a gritty ten episode show, but beggars can’t be choosers. It’s already getting poor reviews but the historical accuracy and the battle sequences look great in the trailer, so I’m ready to sit back and enjoy.
I was hard pressed to find a home page for this Swiss illustrator that captivated me with his amazing accuracy. He’s the first historical illustrator that I’ve seen describe himself as a Scientific Illustrator. His focus is historical building reconstructions and archaeological biographies. You can find reference to his current credentials here.
