The Artboard

In which I post arts, inspirations, and stuff like that.

19th Century British soldiers

Being a big military history buff, and being that the old uniforms from days of old were far more beautiful than they were utilitarian, and being that I love to draw, I doodled up these two infantrymen.  The first is a Sergeant in the Black Watch, arguably the most famous Scottish infantry regiment, as he would have appeared in Crimea in the mid-1850s.  And next to him is a Sergeant of a British redcoat division during the storming of Badajoz, Spain, in 1812.  That one is still a work in progress.

Anyway, I'll post more as I get them together.  This is definitely a niche I'm discovering that I enjoy a great deal, so stay tuned!
