The Hussars by alarie-tano The Hussars by alarie-tano
Watercolors, 44 x 59 cm

This might not fir really in the Fantasy category, as hussars really existed and are not just fantasy. These here are based on the impressive Polish winged hussars.

The composition is based on a painting by Paul Bonner.

Thanks a lot to ~Puk3y101 for letting me use his great horse shot as a reference image:

A little bit too romanticised view. Hussars generally didn't fight/make camps by waterfalls and stuff :<

The Hussars were also a kind of soldiers in the Hungarian army, riding on horse-back.
This is wonderful especially the rock and the small details. :w00t:

Maybe the Hungarian part has more significance to you, it just seemed kind of odd. Oh well, sorry then

No problem. I am Hungarian so I can relate to that more than anything. I think that feeling's something common for everyone.
