View Full Version : Looking for a couple photos

I thought this would definately be THE PLACE to ask for help on this one, being the equine - oops i mean animal forum and all-

I'm working on a commission, Some funky fantasy mideavil t-shirt/logo design for some people. One of the subjects in this picture will be a large horse, rearing, with a man on his back holding up a sword. Ofcorse the horse will be covered in armour and the man will be overly robusk and evil looking LOL but I'm not asking for help on that part ;)

I was wondering if any of you had some photos of a man riding on a rather large horse. Doesnt have to be rearing or anything, I just want to look at it so I can get the relative sizes of the man and the horse. Prefferably the man would be kind of tall (I guess a tall dark hansom worrior on a black steed.....*trails off*) and the horse rather large.

If you happen to have a photo or 2 lying around that you think would be of help to me, and you could post it in this thread, or maybe you could direct me to one (I did look in the library, but had troubles finding images with male riders on large horses) that would be FANTASTIC!!!

Thanx !!! :D :cat:

being in the middle of a medieval piece myself, i am quite happy to help out! i dont have the copyright info on these pics, as i am combining parts of many and only using each for general referance (like body size:D ) but if they help, go for it!
i have more if you need!

Hey Axl, check out that old cheesy fantasy movie, "Krull". Towards the end, they all ride clydesdales that fly, I bet you'd get some decent references there. ;)

sorry Axl,

I don't have any such pictures,

but now I have a really nice picture in my mind of Viggo Mortenson (Aragorn) riding his horse in the recent Lord of the Rings movie...... ;) ahhhh.......:D (happy thoughts :cat: )

Axl...if you want to do some research, you will find more than you ever wanted on this renaissance website:

Sir Clisto (http://www.sirclisto.com/clisto2.html)

He is a friend of mine and has spent many years collecting a huge database of references for just about anything renaissance-related...the site is well known and it is trustworthy.

That being said, if anyone has photos like what Axl needs and is willing to share them, the library could always use more photographs ;) .

:D :D :D
