Yes, it's true. I'm a knight.
Been a bit busy lately playing the part. But I haven't been idle creatively.
Still drawing. Still writing my first book of three... I know - I'm slow... Gotta work and tend to lots of other priorities in the process. But, I am making progress!
Because of the business, I've gotten waaay behind here. Messages and deviation stack have really stacked!
So for any of you reading this that have faved my work and/or have begun watching - THANK YOU SO VERY MUCH!!! I appreciate it more than I can express. :)

So, I spoke of being a knight. I've found my place in the world of Ren and Medieval fairs and fests. If you've seen my Dark Ranger/Rogue outfit, well that's where it began! At the Oklahoma Renaissance Festival, I met a group of gents that share an affinity of Mediaeval things and just have fun getting in garb. They took me in as part of their group and we formed the order of Knights of Castleton! We've been well accepted by the people behind the scenes of our home turf, and have in turn represented them well. We've even been knighted into Queen Margaret's own Order of the Thistle! It's all for fun, but we seriously love this fun. Our motto is "Insequor Altus Adventum" - "Pursue High Adventure". ;)
As a matter of fact, my buddy Wouter :iconwoutart: was made an honorary knight of Castleton - being that we're across the way and he's in The Netherlands. Hail House Florusse!

If you're on Facebook (or what we jokingly refer to as The Book of Faces), and interested in following us there, please come by and "like" The Knights of Castleton!/TheKnights…
It would be awesome and encouraging to the knights. ;)
I'm generally the one posting, but we all share the act. I do run Friday Knight Mood Music every week, and it's typically period music. Sometimes I'll cut loose with a little more contemporary stuff, but I keep it knightly. :lol:

Hope to see you there!

I would love to feature these works in my freshly opened group. Its specialised on high detailed military illustrations and it will host only the finest deviations and will gather some of the most talented artists.

I sent the requests. You have to confirm them.
