Tene Mensuram by ColonelLiamRoss Tene Mensuram by ColonelLiamRoss
Taken by Azulox Photography at Lysts on the Lake 2012 - International Jousting Tournament at Taylor, Texas.

The hat is made with the Henry VII Hat pattern from Lynn McMasters. Can't take any credit for anything else beyond the paint-job on the shield, which was done in the truck on the way down. The design is based on one found on a renntartsch that supposedly belonged to Maximilian I. The motto - "Halt Mass" - is his as well and means "Be moderate."

Aw thanks for saying so! Been mostly getting burned out with animation projects so haven't actually done any drawings of my own...

My impression of jousts I've seen here is that there's a real aura of celebrity around the jouster. They have the same swag as a drag racer. Kinda hypocritical of Max to espouse moderateness while engaging in high-adrenaline contact sports IN. MY. OPINION.

Meine Gott im Himmel! You leave dA for a bit - come back to revisit the old favourites and they've gotten into jousting!! So jealous. So jealous!

Haha, yeah, sort of a weird thing. I did it because I wanted to see why Maximilian I was so into it and dayum, it's pretty intense!

Miss seeing your art around here, btw!
