In an attempt to join my two passions, Art and HEMA, I decided to resurrect my patreon with a fresh new project. 

Painting fencing masters. 
 
The list is growing strong and canvas prints, posters, etc. will be made available on RedBubble even if you aren't my patron. So you won't miss out entirely. For my patrons I will have other things prepared like wips, status updated on each paintings, process gifs, and even providing some of the core files so you can have more control on how you have them printed, or if you just feel like using them for different purposes. 

All the income will go towards supporting my art to be able to continue delivering artwork and... getting my first steel sword!

Fencing Masters List:


But wait there's more...

I will also be painting several illustrations from each manual as they were duels!



Below is an example of what I'll be doing, it is a digital portrait of fencing master Ridolfo Capo Ferro based on the frontispiece of his rapier fencing treatise "Gran Simulacro dell'Arte e dell'Uso della Scherma" (c.1610). You can also find small thumbs of other fencing master below.

 

For prints, posters and other goodies, you can check my redbubble page:
