There’s always space for yet another armor tutorial, right? (ﾉ´ヮ´)ﾉ*:･ﾟ✧
Note that the armor I drew would be worn around 15th century, the more into the future the less and less components knight’s armor had (i. e. in early 14th century instead of greaves a knight would wear long boots only; in 12th century knights didn’t wear plate breastplates and instead a chain mail only). Also the design of armor pattern changed by year and was different in every country (i.e. in eastern Europe armors, while still looking European, were heavily influenced by Turkey). so just make sure you always do research whenever drawing an armor. And one more thing to keep in mind is that armors were expensive, knights wearing a full plate armor weren’t an often sight.
Some links that may be useful:
- Armour Archive (I strongly suggest to browse its forum, there is no country or period of which armor wouldn’t be discussed)
- Therion Arms (armorer’s page; each accessory is photographed in big resolution and several time so it’s a nice page to use as reference for drawing)
- Revival Clothing (another store, but both with medieval clothing and armors; I suggest to read the articles, they’re often supported with pictures)
- Basic Armouring:A Practical Introduction to Armour Making (pdf)
- Educational Charts (pdf, shows how armors and weapons changed over the years)
- Medieval & Renaissance Material Culture (actual medieval resources, mostly paintings. And my favourite subpage - women in armor)
- Dressing in Steel (youtube; a demonstration how to dress in armor)
- How shall a man be armed? (youtube; another demonstration but with 4 different knights from different periods)
The Periodic Table of Storytelling -aka what I’ve been staring at for this entire afternoon.

How to, step-by-step, make expressions mean different things by changing just one facial feature at a time. *shrug* I’m not very good at explaining how I do expressions, I just…feel out what kinds of muscles seem to fit and tweak those. And sometimes, ever so slightly, little adjustments could mean the difference between fury and euphoria.
As promised, a yes/no/maybe sheet has been provided by The Pleasure Chest.
This sheet is best used if you and your partner fill it out categorizing acts as “yes” (would definitely do this!) to “maybe” (I’ll think about it) and “no” (Hell no!). Fill it out and review it in a nonsexual place. Then compare lists with one another. Readdress the list from time to time.
Trust us, consent is sexy. Plus, talking about what’s OK and making plans to try new things is awesome foreplay.
This is a cool idea. Babe?
This is quality, boost!

Degrees of Emotion
It annoys me to no end when people have a bad day and talk about how “depressed" they are. So, I made some emotional scales. These show the extremes of emotions and the most minimal state of the emotion.
These are wonderful for writers~
I found some old art books today called ‘Celtic Art: The methods of Construction by George Bain’ Which, I found interesting. I only have 4 out of the 7, they are very old (From 55 years ago). I thought I would just share some scans from them, some people might find them useful. :)
Ohhhh horror vacui neat to see tutorials on it.
KNOTWORK *flips table* I have the rest of this book and it’s amazing and I’m trying to learn how to do it myself. IT’S SO TEDIOUS BUT I LOVE IT
