Moorish Knight

Who are all those black knights in western european art. THey might be the pROUD GUARDIANS OF A FORGOTTEN CHAPTER IN OUR HISTORY.

The armor

I Built this armor from scratch using zbrush and Substance 3d Painter. It is my own variation on several Augsburg armors, and the egyptian Lotus symbols are an element I added to emphasize this knight's ancient heritage.

The Sculpture

The raw SCulpture made in Zbrush


Augsburg Field Armor 1524

This is an Augsburg field armor from the early 16th century. The bottom half of it i designed myself, as it was missing from the original piece. I used this design as the basis for the black and gold armor.
