Oznerol-1516's Profile Picture
Artist | Hobbyist | Digital Art
I love to draw since I have memory... But, as I'm a historian on my own, I love to draw historical scenes and characters, trying to bring them to life. I use few digital programs as Corel, GIMP, and MyPaint for my artworks but I'm far more skilled drawing by hand, being the pencil my favoured tool. Maybe I don't choose trully popular, or known, themes for my artworks, but I don't really care. I hope everyone who visit this page will at least like some of my few "paintures".
Thanks for reading!

And leave comments! I'm also open to criticism.

 Master Oznerol, might I please ask if you have had any thoughts about how you would depict the First Men and the Andals as they were during the long age when the fought for supremacy in Westeros?

 It is a period that has sparked my curiosity for some reason (possibly my fascination with House Arryn and the Battle of Seven Stars!).

I must say I have little idea about how to depict them. Anyway, I think Andals would look something like a cross between Saxons and Normans (odd at it is!) while First Men would be more similar to the ancient barbarian European tribes, maybe a touch of Gaul, another of Germania a bit of old Iberia for Dornish... etc, etc.

 I must say that I too have difficulty working out what The Andals and the First Men ought to look like - although I've come to believe that borrowing from Late Antiquity for the First Men (all that Bronze!) and the Early Medieval Period for the Andals (for example the Cavalry of Charlemagne) might be a good place to start.

 I will say that I tend to imagine the First Men grabbing steel weapons with some speed, but seldom managing to acquire Steel Armour except in Battle. 

I admit that when I think of The Battle of the Seven Stars I imagine a great fresco with the battling champions dressed as Medieval Knights - in rather the same way The Medieval World dressed characters from rather earlier in History as though they were contemporary Knights and Nobles.

 I should warn you that I have thought out this mental image in some detail, so please be warned that if you ask me about it you may get a rather lengthy and obsessively-detailed answer!;) (Wink)

I've stumbled upon your works before, and really admired the historical authenticity that marks your illustrative style. Sad to say I lost you on DA ,but thankfully I've stumbled in here once again - which is a blessing, as I can now :+devwatch: you and have a proper gander around your gallery when I get the chance. Lovely work, particularly the Tolkien (as is clearly my wont ;)).

I must say that I'm truly honored by your words, as you are truly skilled and one of those brilliant Tolkien fanartists whose gallery I follow/watch closely (along others like Turner Mohan, Steamey or Eukanova). Thus I'm glad you stumbled with my gallery again, and I'm as glad that you like both my style and my Tolkien-inspired works. Historicity is a must for me, more so when even my fanart (Tolkien and so) is soaked with historical influences, in armor, robes and jewelry.
So, I thank you for the watch, much appreciated. Btw, sometimes I feel very close to your vision of Middle-earth.
