Today’s artist is Milek Jakubiec AKA EthicallyChallenged.

I’m sure you have seen his stuff by now, but you can the pleasure of seeing it again. An illustrator living in Poland, he does excellent work for a historical interest mag called Medieval Warfare Magazine. 

primus-pilus:

Today’s artist is Odobenus. He has a lovely impressionist style with vivid contrasts of light bright primaries and natural looking earth tones. He does historical art and as you can see some very nice Sci-fi stuff. He also encourages people to download his stuff and print it out for themselves.       

"The King of Benin can in a single day make 20,000 men ready for war, and, if need be, 180,000, and because of this he has great influence among all the surrounding peoples… . His authority stretches over many cities, towns and villages. There is no King thereabouts who, in the possession of so many beautiful cities and towns, is his equal."
Olfert Dapper, Nauwkeurige Beschrijvinge der Afrikaansche Gewesten (Description of Africa), 1668
