Sint Maarten by WorldsEdge

This artwork is trully well painted, it is not only evocative of the woodcuts and engravings of old but visually appealing, it even has...



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.

Otto I offers Liutgarde as a token of peace to Conrad the Red, duke of Lorraine
Liutgarde is offered as a token of peace to Conrad by Oznerol-1516
Otto I, german emperor, son of Henry the Fawler, true founder of Ottonids, had a glorious reign, unifying the country, defeating it's enemies, the magyars, extending his power onto Italy and being crowned Holy Roman Emperor in Rome by the Pope. One of the most defying nobles to his authority was Conrad, the Red, duke of Lorraine. After waging many skirmishes and conflicts both signed the peace, and such he was offered in 947 the emperor's daugther as bride. From their union would come the Salian dinasty, and such the Ottonid survived, by female inheritance. Their robes are done after ottonid miniatures, jewelry and art. The emperor's attire has a lot of carolingian elements, as he chosed to appear in "frankish" dress at his coronation. Liutgarde wears a typical womanly, but royal, dress, with her head covered, and crowned (not only ottonid, but anglo-saxon art proved to be useful here). The emperor's sword follows the surviving examples we have from that period.
Above Otto's heard is his monogram (OTTO), the two others have their name in somewhat ottonid calligraphic style, copied from a privilege issued by Otto.
Liutgarde is frigthful, for his marrigae to the fearsome and rebellious duke, and such I tried to depict her face! While Otto is not trully convinced by the alliance and Conrad is eager to take his bride's hand.

This was done as a comission (my first ever) for LordHadrian, a fellow deviantartist. Hope you all like it. 10 eu was paid, based the price being three characters (3 eu each), plus 1 for doing it.

 Master Oznerol, I'm not sure if you're familiar with the work of Jude Maris but given your own interest in portraiture and the reconstruction of historical figures (not to  mention that excellent page of them in your gallery) I thought that if you had not already seen her work you would enjoy looking through it.

 I hope you enjoy her gallery!:) (Smile)

Many thanks for the fave! :thanks:
Think my sisters beautiful don't you?  I'd be careful if I were you, especially where dragons tread. Thanks for the fave, Aegon Targaryen.

Please direct your replies, if any, here...…

Master Oznerol, I would like to express my complete admiration for all the works that you have posted to date and my hopes that you will continue to post work as good … or even better!

 I shall finish here and would only like to add that I think a version of 'The Princess and the Queen' illustrated with your work (used as paragraph breaks) would be even better than the one with which we are already familiar, since your work is fit to illustrate any Medieval Manuscript!

I've never received a better praise for my works, in fact it is for me the greatest pleasure to read your kind words, Libra. I'm glad you liked the artworks I've posted to the date, will try to keep developing my skills.

And I'm extremely honored by your suggestion, it could be a hard task, but a pleasant one noneless. Now you only have to convince Martin and his editors to include them in a new version! Hahaha! Just joking (but it would be as delightful as a dream!). Thanks for the compliment, as I'm glad that you find my artworks fitting for such a magnificent story as it is 'The Princess and the Queen' and for a Medieval manuscript! Because as you surely know History is always my source of inspiration.

You totally made my day, I'm nearly jumping with joy. Thanks for your kindness again.

I was thinking what character I'm going to paint next, suggestions?

 Thank you very kindly Maester Oznerol for your own very kind reply to my remarks! (thank you also for the Llama, who seems very surprised to have suddenly found herself in Great Britain, but has very kindly decided to refrain from taking her displeasure out on my person - although she tells me that I shall now either have to buy her a ticket home or a raincoat, the weather in the British Isles being rather too damp for her taste).

 In reply to your equally kind request, might I suggest Daeron II 'The Good' dressed in the Dornish fashion (likely to please his wife and conceal his pot-belly!), as this particular character is something of a favourite of mine owing to his Moral courage, which proves the equal of the physical courage in any knight - even Ser Daemon Blackfyre.

 Thank you again for your own kindnesses, L.

Kindness is the least I could do, I had to thank you, Libra, for posting. You know, it is not usual to see comments on my artworks and that is most encouraging, many times I have doubts about my art, but thanks to your words I have reasserted my self-confidence.

About the Llama, I think she will have to endure the mist and rain of your English weather, as you diserved it and the ticket back to Cuzco for a llama is far too expensive for us both, I think. You must buy her a good raincoat and teach her how to endure.

I've read your suggestion in the other reply, and I agree with you on every point; wise, brave, a good administrator, merciful... Such it was a pleasure to draw him (I have just uploaded the lineart).

A Targaryen less!

Next suggestion?

Again I have to thank you for posting, you cannot imagine how pleasant is to read comments in an artwork you spent quite a few hours with.
