Lawrence - His Majesty's Dragons

(Click on the image to view Full Screen)

Lawrence, main character from Naomi Novik's Series His Majesty's Dragons

I made a drawing of Lawrence sometime last year, between two projects. Well, it's supposed to be Lawrence, as I figured him. The mood might bit too sombre, but that's what came at the time.

   * Crested Helmet (mix between English Lifeguards and French Dragons)
* Pilot Jacket (leather jacket similar to those English pilot wore during WWII) embroidered with patterns often found on Hussard/Dragons/Lifeguards' vests.
* Sabre : "Epée forte" (strong sword ?) in the Napoleonian "Cuirassiers" style (but there were equivalents on the other side of the channel )
* Breastplate : embroidered with patterns from Hussards/Lifeguards' breastplates.
* Harness : the piece of equipment without which this wouldn't be Lawrence.
