Adorable. Weird too.

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)

SCP-354: The Red Pool
SCP-354 is a pool of red liquid located in northern Canada. The liquid is similar in consistency to human blood but is non-biological in nature. The density of the liquid increases proportionally with depth. Periodically, entities emerge from the pool and attempt to escape from the enclosure. Thusfar, nearly all creatures emerging from SCP-354 have been extremely hostile and highly dangerous. A log of entities which have emerged from SCP-354 can be found on the main article. One attempt at exploring the pool has been made. A log of the exploration can be found here.

Winnie-the-Pooh made its debut on February 3, 1924 and was inspired by the beloved teddy bear of A.A. Milne’s four-year-old son, Christopher Robin. His original bear, named Edward and eventually renamed to Winnie-the-Pooh, survives and now lives at the New York Public Library. Pictured above, Edward Bear with his friends – Piglet, Tigger, Eeyore and Kanga – in the NYPL collection.
Celebrate Pooh’s birthday with this rare and wonderful recording of Milne reading from his classic.
“Terry and Stanley found each other through Peter Sellers, who, at Christmas time, bought 100 copies of his favorite novel, The Magic Christian, and gave them to friends — friends like Stanley Kubrick. Kubrick saw in the novel a talent which could be orchestrated — a writer of dialogue who could be cut loose like Charlie Parker. Before Stanley read The Magic Christian, Esquire sent Terry to do an interview with the unknown director who had just finished ‘Lolita.’ Upon meeting Kubrick in England, Terry’s New Journalism investigations were bursting out across the pond in Esquire, including: ‘How I signed up for $250 a Day For the Big Parade Through Havana bla, bla, bla and Wound Up In Guatamala Working For the CIA,’ and ‘Twirling at Ole Miss’ — which Tom Wolfe cites as the story which started New Journalism and Gonzo. Upon Strangelove’s release, with Terry so popular, and with the previously contraband Candy making her debut as a controversial best-seller — the press turned Terry into the ‘author’ of the film — a tresspass Kubrick never completely forgave.” —An Interview with Stanley Kubrick Director of LOLITA by Terry Southern; Unpublished; 1962; NYC
Embedded below is another terrific episode of Cinéma cinémas, ‘Search Lolita desperately,’ with Sue Lyon.
