Drew this at the Metropolitan Museum of Art here in New York City a few years back. Was just a pencil and pen study in my sketch book from these beautiful sets of plate armor. The one on the left was from a German jousting set and the darker gauntlets and arms on the right are 16th Century Italian steel I believe.
If you're a fan of fantasy and such like me, definitely pay a visit to your local museums and sit around drawing and admiring the sculptures, armors, weapons, and art from all over the world. You'll be inspired up the wazzooo! Hell, if you're an ARTIST period..get your asses over to your local museum at least 1 time in your life....jeez..
BTW, I'm not a fan of MoMa, the Museum of Moder Art. I'm not bashing Picasso's generation of artist...but you know....I'm not a big fan of paint splats and logs of wood wrapped with barbwire >_< but thats just me.
If you're a fan of that "stuff" visit a modern art exhibit near you as well.
