Medieval Footman
This was my first first boxart for Altores Studio. It was a wonderful experience for me and I want to thank Alexandr Pashin for the opportunity and Alexander Deryabin for the fantastic sculpt. For me it is one of the best historical faces in recent years.

I wanted to depict our subject as a foot soldier in the army of Richard III. Young and inexperienced. I also wanted to depict different metals. An old rusty chain-mail, a helmet in need of care and a sword our subject is very proud of.

    I hope one day I will be able to develop a painting style as recogniseable as yours. When I look at one of your models I instantly know who painted it.
