I warned you guys!
Here is another Agincourt scene, this time a smaller one. This is a 54mm scratch built vignette from 2 years ago (old sins indeed!)
Here we see king Henry V leading his outnumbered and starving army against the french knights...
This battle has always fascinated me and always will.
The hard fighting, the terrible conditions, the desperation and the triumph against the odds.
And it gives the sculptor and painter a great opportunity to practice how to sculpt different facial expressions, body language and also how to paint blood stains and some mud spots or two!

    Still the same method: the king in colors ans the soldiers in grey

    • Mike Blank

      Yes my friend, it is the same idea to use the colors, to make the king stand out, to show his status and also to be the focal point.
      Well spotted! It is all about how to control the viewers eye using the composition of the poses, levels ans also colors. And I guess we have a formula that we feel represents us, making it personal and unique.
      Thanks my friend!

    • Mike Blank

      Thanks Clive!
      And I love doing these tightly composed scenes, and once again, I am very much inspired by the classic painters and sculptors, were they use a very minimum of “dead space”.
