I can't remember for sure, but I'm pretty sure these were done in the lead up to my art O-level exam, that would have made me 15-16, and they amply demonstrate that my nerdish tendancies started at an early age!!!
I've always been interested in Arthurian legend, and I remember about this time going through a phase of wanting to draw nothing else.
This was an experiment, my first time (as I recall) of drawing on a black background, an effect that I fell in love with - now three quarters of my pictures are on a black background! This was executed in silver Kandahar ink and fountain pen
Sir Galahad - this was done in pastels (I was already hooked on them). I wasn't at all confident about drawing human faces here.
A random knight. I used to love drawing knights; the movement, the flowing caparisons, the gleaming armour, the horses, the drama ... what's not to love??
I must try it again at some point!
